    So I've met and exceeded my offer to study Pharmacy at UCL, I got A*A*A in psychology biology and chemistry respectively and an A in AS English literature. I had initially wanted to do dentistry but because of my poor AS grades I didn't and applied for pharmacy instead. Now I feel like pharmacy would be a waste of my grades?

    Do you guys think i should reapply next year for dentistry, or would the chances of me getting in still be slim? This would obviously require taking a gap year which I have a lot of pros and cons for...

    Also, if I do take a gap year does anybody have an idea of what kind of work/experience I can take? I was thinking about some kind of sciency or clinical placement?

    Hope you all got results you're happy with.
