Bring the maths up to a B and you've got as good a chance as anyone else applying! You meet the academic requirements without even doing the extra AS next year (excluding GCSE Maths) so if you do want to do Pharmacy, just focus on nailing your personal statement Even work experience isn't necessary!

Almost all of the Pharmacy schools were in clearing last year, including the likes of KCL and Nottingham.

You definitely stand a chance with what you have, but you'll need to get your GCSE Maths up to a B for some Pharmacy schools. If you're applying to Nottingham then you will need an A.
