    Currently in my first year of university studying Adult nursing, and intend to complete this degree. While out on placement I've begun to be really interested in Pharmacy, the study of medicines and the work of a Pharmacist. At sixth form college I was not allowed to study the sciences because my maths gcse grade was C, even though I got BB in science. I therefore chose BTEC level 3 Applied Science (Medical), in which I got DMM equivalent to ABB (280 ucas points). So my question is would I be able to get into Pharmacy upon completing my nursing degree?

    I would really love to get a Pharmacy students insight and anyone else feel free to comment. Thank you.

    Potentially. It depends on how much chemistry and biology you cover on the nursing degree.

    I think your best bet is to contact the pharmacy school(s) admissions department(s) you're interested in and ask them outright. If you can send them a list of the modules you're due to cover in your degree it might help.
