    Does anyone know how much Biochemistry is taught in year 1 of the Pharmacy degree? ( e.g. the DNA, molecular genetics, enzymes ....)
    Will these stuffs be much more advanced than those we have learnt in the A levels?

    At Brighton we covered the biochemistry / genetics / pharmacology / formulation science / pharmacy practice of non-small cell lung cancer as a case for about 3 weeks in Semester 1 of Year 1.

    Yes, it will be more advanced than A levels, but it won't be too difficult.

    At our university we build up on basic principals, so throughout year 1 we would learn the basics from A-level but focus a lot more on the complex science from different aspects. A therapeutic basis, chemical basis and eventually this is put into context with pharmacy as a whole in terms of treatment and diagnosis. This is done throughout the course on practically every body system.

    Our first year consisted of essential a recap of A-level within the first two weeks then a strong emphasis on the core university level texts...examples include Rang & Dale Pharmacology, An introduction to Medicinal chemistry, and generally a variety of texts that explored that section in quite a lot of detail.
