    So my university years haven't been fantastic. I've been suffering from medication resistant depression pretty much throughout the entire five years.*

    In first year I failed the calculations exam. I managed to get a complex about it as it was a 70% pass mark, on my second resit I failed because I missed out units in two of the questions. As a result I had to resit the full year (take a year out a resit the exam when the following year sat it).

    I worked for the full year and my depression just got worse. I was at a really bad point when I went back to university and subsequently failed two subjects (I know at this point I should have just given in). Worked for a year in a pharmacy and am finally feeling a tad better. Anyway fast forward failed one exam in January, failed one in May passed the rest.

    Had my resits this week think I have passed one but the other one I'm pretty sure I've failed (Therapeutic delivery - 2 ten mark questions and four 20 marks questions in which we need to write essays). I genuinely am not in a place where I can memorise 40 lectures and write 20 mark essays.*

    Anyway I can't have another year out and my university doesn't let me carry credits. Is there any way I can persuade them to let me

    I know this makes it seem like I'm incredibly thick but I'm not. I've been told that I would make a good pharmacist. I get really good marks in all of the directly pharmacy related subjects.

    What now? I've wasted five years of my life on this living in a city I hate. All for nothing.

    I've got a place for a NES interview for pre-reg in scotland and have a pre-reg place with boots.*
