    Czech is apparantly a really hard language to learn - like all the slovak languages (polish, croatian etc) it's got a grammar based around word endings rather than word order, as well as pronounciations which seem very "alien" to people to are used to germanic languages (such as english) or learning languages like French.

    This might sound harsh, but if you're not smart enough to get the offer in the UK would you be smart enough to cover the same course in a completely foreign language. Also, assuming you were able to return to the UK to practise, would you have the necessary vocabulary?

    Can you do a medicine postgrad after Pharmacy? You could always try and persuade her that that's your plan. Remember, it's your life, not your mother;s.

    Ouch! I know you don't wanna do that - I was thinking you could use my argument on your mother! Excuse me for trying to be helpful.

    Someone posted earlier in the thread that it was 50%, which is why I ignored that question.

    There's another argument you can use. If your mum is going to be financially supporting you at all, I'm sure she won't want all that money to go to waste if you end up dropping out.
