I want to become a pharmacist and there are very few unis in London which do a pharmacy degree with a foundation year and needed a C in science which I don't have because I got a D. so I decided to apply for pharmaceutical science degree extended which is essentially with a science foundation year if I take the foundation year would I be able to get into other unis such as Kingston, others but yeah that meant I had to change my personal statements I have been accepted to uel, London met and Hertfordshire but im really confused so I was just asking can I still become a full pharmacist with this degree which is pharmaceutical.

As above. If you look on the General Pharmaceutical Councils website, they explain what is required to become a pharmacist.

No. Only the MPharm degree qualifies you to start pre-registration training - Pharmaceutical Science degrees tend to lack key modules relating to clinical practice (e.g. learning the law around pharmacy, counselling skills, dealing with ethical dilemnas, knowing how to use appropriate reference sources, experience in various Pharmacy placements). You simply wouldn't have the required knowledge base and skills to work as a Pharmacist.
