    Sorry to hear it Unfortunately a lot of decent applicants with the right qualifications, work experience, good PS, lots of dedication etc don't get in the first time round. It's a sign of how competitive the process has become rather than a reflection on that individual. Try not to take it too personally (though it really does feel awful, I realise).

    If you have an unconditonal offer for pharmacy, do you already have your A level grades? What did you get?

    If you've got the right grades, reflect upon why you think you didn't get in this year. Low UKCAT? Difficult interview? Not enough preparation? Whatever the reason(s), identify it, take a gap year and reapply. It will feel really annoying to take another year out, but it would be better than doing an unnecessary degree imho.

    Have you considered a gap year in which you can strengthen your application and then reapply next year?

    In that case, then for now your priority is to focus on your A levels and do your utmost to get AAA. Then have a think over the summer about how your application could be improved, then re-apply in October
