Which Uni?

If you check the following MPharm courses .... Portsmouth wants C, Lincoln wants C, Liverpool John Moores wants C, Wolverhampton wants C, Huddersfield wants C. That 5 choices for a start.

And of course you could also simply retake English GCSE this year alongside your A levels etc - just ask your school, then add it as a retake on your UCAS application.

And if you are talking about A* A levels, no this doesn't 'bump up' inadequate GCSEs. If a Uni says they want GCSEs at B that IS what they want.

A degree in Pharmacy is vocationally focussed. If the degree is accredited by the GPC then it is worth exactly the same as any other MPharm in employers eyes (see https://www.pharmacyregulation.org/e...mpharm-degrees).

Do not fall into the trap of thinking that a Uni that asks for higher grades is 'better'. It isnt. Go and have a look at Unis like those I listed before you assume that you are somehow 'too good' to apply there.

Or retake that GCSE.
