Hello, my name is pharmgirl27! watch

    • Thread Starter

    hey guys i need help.I am starting my second year MPharm this year. I've always been interested to study Medicine since O-level but I didn't get the A-level grades (BBC in Maths,Chem and Bio respectively) so I got into Pharmacy School instead. I did consider a gap year but I was really scared that I will get the same grades. So I thought that I should keep an open mind to it and maybe I will enjoy Pharmacy cause who knows right I haven't tried the course. Then I realized that I still want to do medicine. I plan to apply for Graduate entry medicine right after 4 years of MPharm and skip the pre-registration year. Personally, I don't think I should do the pre-registration training as I really want to apply for GEM after the 4 years and maybe gain more work experience (volunteer, part-time jobs) throughout the remaining 3 years. So do you this this is possible (not doing the pre-reg)? Will I stand a chance? I know GEM route is more competitive but I really didn't want to take a gap year as I wanted a fresh start but just realized that I still want to do medicine. I chose pharmacy over other life sciences cause I enjoy chemistry and I want to know more about drugs. Guide me please

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

    How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

    Put your work head on:
    No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

    Take it easy:
    You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

    That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.
