    GCSE's: You will need above a C in english and above a B in maths at most universities, you'll also need at least 5 A to C's (more is better though). You don't need to have straight A's to do pharmacy but it will certainly help if you want to get into a good university.

    A-levels: Make sure you do well in your A levels though, most unis ask for AAB or ABB some even ask for AAA.

    AAC are good grades to get into pharmacy school with. I think most Universities want the A to be in chemistry and want something like AAB-ABB so I would say you have a very good chance. If you also don't get the grades or the place for the desired uni, there are always spaces available for pharmacy schools on extra/clearing so if you keep your options open and prepare yourself well, I am sure you can find yourself studying as a Pharmacy student in a few years down the line
