    its the normal deadline - 15th january.

    depending on when you submit your application will depend on which batch of interviews you get on to. The earliest ones are at the start of next month and then they'll be periodically from that point depending on how many applications they've had

    It's a bit late now but I might take a gap year if I get good A Level grades and do work experience. I've been working in a pharmacy and i enjoy dispensing and helping manage the pharmacy but obviously its different for the pharmacist.

    im just saying from experience it becomes really boring. my dads a pharmacist so i used to work with him for 3 years and i literally learnt everything a pharmacist does. It gets repetitive and i just couldn't see myself potentially doing it as a job for the rest of my life and even my dad said it is boring and he hates it. If pharmacy is what you really love and you can see yourself doing it as a job for a long time then go ahead but I'm just saying that i found it boring. Also if you finish medicine and wanted a job youre pretty much guaranteed a job

    It is not propaganda, it is reality. You can bury your head in the sand all you want but you will graduate and enter the world eventually.
    If you want to take the course by any means take it, but be aware of the reality.

    Im surprised someone reported this post. Just goes to show why young Brits lag behind in common sense compared to the rest of the world. They are purposely oblivious to the information and warnings put in front of them in a plate and still go ahead without doing research.
