    Hi

    I had a firm offer for UCL Pharmacy (AAB) and found that I got ABB (Maths- A, Chem-B, Bio-B) on results day. My insurance was QMUL Biochem which I dont want to do but got into. I've emailed them to withdraw my application and they've said they'll reply by Tuesday/Wednesday. So I've been rejected from UCL even though I've just missed my offer by one grade.

    I was out of the country yesterday and literally have just flown back in, so didn't get a chance to check clearing or anything. My friend phoned them yesterday but they said they weren't reconsidering unless for remarks, which is there is o point of getting done because I wasn't close to getting an A in either bio or chem.

    Any advice? I don't want to o anything except Pharmacy and I have to do it in London, so no chance of going Hert or Kingston.

    Please Help.
    Thanks

    Would Pharmaceutical Chem at QMUL not have worked for you?

    Possibly consider calling Kingston. Its really close to london and also consider that some of pharmacy is taught at St George's university in London. There's medway school of pharmacy which is close to London too.

    Good luck!
