    Yes you do but with these grades, don't bother going for a dead end career like pharmacy. I would advise you try for medicine or dentistry...

    Unless of course a family member owns several successful pharmacies that you are going to inherit? If not, don't waste your good grades

    DON'T DO PHARMACY. YOU HAVE AMAZING GRADES AND CAN DO MUCH BETTER.
    Like DrB said try medicine or dentistry unless you are an heir to a multi-chain pharmacy business.

    Seriously though, Why do you want to study pharmacy?
    If you are doing it for money, security, 9-5 weekday, career progression, being impactful in patient care, respect.... look elsewhere
    There is countless post on here and all over the web about the disastrous state of this profession in the UK, and even elsewhere. You really don't have to look far.
    Its soo bad that there is now an annual conference assisting pharmacy students and pharmacists to see other career options, APC Alternative Pharmacy Careers conference.
