    You can browse pharmacy courses and look at the entry requirements on the UCAS Course Search.

    The grades that your offer will be reliant on, your predictions, will be decided by your teacher. Unfortunately you're probably going to struggle to get the predicted grades you need for pharmacy, this time around though. If you've sat the new spec where AS won't count towards your full A level, and if you genuinely believe that you can do better next year, then you may be able to continue into year 13, in which case you could apply next year (for 2018 entry) after getting your full A level grades. If you're not on the new spec then you could completely retake year 12, either at your current college if they'll let you, or a new one.

    There are lots of foundation courses around, again these can be researched on UCAS.

    All the best with whatever you choose.
