    I don't know what to do at University.
    From a young age I always wanted to be a pharmacist but my grades in GCSE And my current A-Level are not good enough to apply for the pharmacy course in university. Also Science and math are not my strong points.
    I am so confused about my university course that it is making me depressed.
    I was thinking of taking a gap year and maybe apply for an access course to science and then after that apply to university. This will open up new and more choices for me in university and I may find something I like after I do this course.

    That's not the right answer. If you're not sure what to do, talk to people (including your teachers), go to uni open days and talk to the lectures there. They will be able to support you. If you have done everything and still not sure what to do, then take a gap year like you stated and then think ahead. Think what you like doing best, your strongest points. Don't think of your weaknesses, yes work on them, but if you're going to struggle, then don't do that particular subject(s).

    But I should advise you, if you want to pursue a career in Pharmacy or related fields, then your Maths and Science level should be strong.

    Why because everyone should go to university regardless if they want to?
