    So I have applied for pharmacy. I am thinking of firming Bath and insuring Aston. I wasn't always 100% dedicated to pharmacy, but recently I've completely drawn away from it having talked to various of pharmacists who advised me not to do pharmacy and also the salary is going down. The factor that drew it for me was how intense the course is for 5 years and after all that you don't get the reward/satisfaction from it. My A levels are in English Lit, Chemistry and Biology. I have always always always been fascinated in mental illnesses and psychologically speaking unstable people. I researched a bit into this and found that I will have to do medicine and then 2 years of foundation before I can pursue this.

    My worries are if I don't get into medicine for 2017 entry then I will be very behind for my age. I'm a resit student so I am 19 atm. I just don't know which direction to take atm, my head's in a mess!

    Any advice would be really appreciated.

    What about psychology or Life sciences as a backup?
