Basically, I have applied for Pharmacy for 2017 entry but im not satisfied as my heart is still in medicine.
I resat solely my AS year due to poor grades and i am now working towards my a2 exams this summer. (2017) this restricts my uni options for medicine.
Keele and exeter will allow me to apply with my a2 grades and brighton and plymouth will allow me to apply with predicted grades.
Is it possible to start the pharm course and apply to medicine 2018 entry, and if i get offer just drop the pharm course. Or is it better to take a gap year, get some work experience and apply for 2018 that way.

The decider is finance. Can you afford to lose the year by doing the one year of pharmacy? If you know you're set on medicine then take the gap year and make your application the best it can be.

I've been told it's better to take a gap year cos it looks bad that you haven't got enough commitment to stick to one thing and med sure as hell requires commitment 😜
