I need some advice! I am going to be doing a Medicine Access Diploma as I didn't get enough UCAS points from college. I am really interested in applying for a Pharmacy degree, however, I am just a little concerned that it would be way too difficult for me as I am not a straight A student, I got mainly B's and C's.
Anyone done Pharmacy that wasn't a straight A student?

Certainly isn't a walk in the park but it doesn't have to be difficult either! As long as you enter a pharmacy degree for the right reasons and it is definitely what YOU want to do, then that in itself is a motivating factor. My top tips would just be to stay on top of your work (I always studied my lecture notes a few days in advance); work effectively amongst and learn from your peers; use the knowledge and experience of your lecturers to your advantage; and ensure you have other interests outside of pharmacy to help keep you sane throughout the 4 years!
Best wishes in whatever you decide to do!

I achieved 2 B's and 1 C at A levels, I am certainly not a straight A student. I have just finished the first year of my pharmacy degree. I'll be honest, it wasnt easy, at times i was overwhelmed, but as long as you stay focused and plan your time, you will get through it. So it isn't at all easy but it's not impossible.
