    I took my GCSEs last summer in 2016, and I'm interested in doing Pharmacy at UCL, but I'm worried my grades are too low for such a good university. Does anyone have any idea of what grades they would be happy with, assuming I get the right A level grades (I'm currently studying Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Computing at AS level

    My GCSEs:
    Maths: A* A* (Linked Pair Pilot, think this counts as two grades?)
    Further Maths: B
    Statistics: A
    English Lit: A
    English Lang: A
    Chemistry: A
    Physics: A
    Biology: A
    R.E. : B
    Computing: A*
    History: B
    Music: B
    French: A
    Chinese: A

    Thanks in advance for any help/advice

    Lol, your grades are perfectly fine, don't worry. I asked my brother if they were concerned about GCSE grades and he said no (he's doing a Ph.D. in Pharmacy at UCL). Just focus on your predicted grades and your personal statement. Good luck and see you at UCL if we both get in lol!
