    Hey guys,
    I'm currently studying Maths, Chemistry and Biology at A2.
    Im applying for Pharmacy and I also want to apply for Chemistry (as an insurance). However, I am using the same personal statement for both of these courses. My personal statement talks about work experience at a community pharmacy and I have also ended it talking about Pharmacy. I have also included some of the things I am interested in, within Chemistry.

    I dont know if this is okay. Someone help?
    Thank you

    Your PS needs to be 100% focused on pharmacy. Why not pharmacology as your back up?

    The requirements are the same as Pharmacy, so its not really an insurance. I really like the look of the Chemistry course at Swansea, its a new course starting for 2017 entry.

    ..but the Pharmacy and Chemistry courses are similar in so many ways?

    The science behind them may be linked, but pharmacy is a lot about learning how to be a pharmacist - it's a vocational course, whereas chemisty is strictly academic
