    Anyone want to share advice on writing pharmacy personal statements or share theirs? I wasn't going to apply for pharmacy in the first place however my UKCAT score was low so I don't know how to start off writing a personal statement for pharmacy.

    I'm in the same situation as you, so are you going to apply to any medical schools this year?

    Can you email your personal statement to me too please, I have a medicine personal statement done but my UKCAT score was low, so now I need to write a pharmacy personal statement. I have no work experience relating to pharmacy either.

    Yh definitely! Pm me with your email address
    Dw as far as I'm aware, having pharmacy related work experience isn't necessary but obs it is recommended so you have a bit more to talk about in interviews and your ps etc.
    Have you tried to organise one recently? Even if it's for a day or the weekend, something is better than nothing at all

    Ahh noo! What was your ukcat score if you don't mind me asking? If you are gonna apply, apply to your strengths for the med schools, and you never know, they may have lower cut offs.
