    No, I'm afraid not. Still, at least now you know. Try searching for a foundation year, perhaps? I will move this to the pharmacy forum.

    It is worth looking at universities like Portsmouth and Wolverhampton.
    http://courses.wlv.ac.uk/course.asp?...U#.VMUGRv6sWSo
    http://www.port.ac.uk/courses/health...hons-pharmacy/

    Wolverhampton will accept a minimum of 300 UCAS points and Portsmouth accept Cs in chemistry and biology/maths... Even though you got slightly lower points-wise they may still consider you, especially in clearing.

    Otherwise, there are foundation courses like others have said, at some good universities.

    Not sure if this helps or not but I got CCC in AS and am predicted BBC by my teachers (although I feel that I could push it up to at least BBB-ABB) and I have managed to get conditional offers from portsmouth and de montfort (300 and 320 ucas points respectively) so if you are convinced that pharmacy is for you and you show that passion in your personal statement you should be able to get in.

    Also if your convinced that your grades will stay at BBC then you could try apply for pharmacology at portsmouth or pharmaceutical sciences at brighton, since I have been told that getting a certain percentage of marks (around 65%) in the first year allows you to transfer to the MPharm course, although its not explained on the websites so you may want to ask around if that takes your fancy.
