Isit too late to start uni in Sept 2014?Watch
Im 21, gonna be 22 in 10 days.. And im really panicking now because i want to go to uni in september to study Pharmacy and finally live my dream.. only problem is i studied a levels in sixth form years ago and got CDE in bio, maths, chem in order.. I went to uni to study biomedical science but dropped out and have been working part time since. Now i really want to go back this year, I know i will have to retake maths and chemistry a-levels and achieve As, but does anyone think its possible and where can i sit these exams independently?
You can sit exams as an external candidate at any exam center, you'd have to pay for them though and you'd have to ring up schools/colleges quite soon to arrange it.
Why are you only thinking about this now? UCAS opened in September, if it's really your dream or if you care enough to now be panicking you'd think you'd have done something about it ages ago
i know i think i suffer from last minute syndrome, serious **** man it affects millions dont laugh.. lol.. na ive been slaving away for pennies and nobody gets paid like pharmacists right? that was my original ucas application and i got accepted into reading after an interview and everything but i just never got the grades in sixth form, really should have taken a gap year but i was an eager beaver. learnt from my mistakes i guess you could say. thanks for the reply tho, im going to email my sixth form tomoro and see if they will have me. u think getting an A grade in maths and chemistry if i start now is possible tho?
I sat my a-levels in 2011, so 3 years ago. Yh i think it will be a good idea to take two years, and work on some pharmacy related activities to improve my ucas app.. A year is nothing nowadays. thanks for the advice friend, really helped!
You will have to write a PS ASAP and find a reference within 1-2 weeks, and the unis you apply to will want to know why you dropped out of biomed etc, that might work against you but it is possible to get some offers from lower tier unis. I know pharmacy sometimes goes in clearing aswell.
