    Hey guys...

    I was hoping to get some feedback from you.
    I am hoping to apply for MPHARM...I am predicted AAC. I have done a lot of research and I can see myself in this profession as a pharmacist.
    I’ve shortlisted the unis that match my entry requirements and looks good but can’t narrow it down to 5 so I would be so grateful for your suggestions...

    Listed in no particular order btw
    Aston
    Reading
    Bath
    De Montfort
    Kingston
    Bradford
    Portsmouth
    Hertfordshire
    Liverpool John Moore’s

    To complicate things for you a bit further, you should really have a spread of potential offer levels. ie. consider applying to 1 or 2 above your prediction, a couple at your prediction and 1 or 2 below it.

    Top unis with prestige are Reading and Bath, but I'm not sure whether the uni name matters much when becoming a pharmacist.

    See I am predicted AAC in biology, chemistry and maths respectively.
    Reading-AAB-ABB
    Bath-mainly AAB but considers ABB with A in epq which I will have
    Aston AAB-ABB

    then the rest are 128 points/or equivalent so even if i do get AAC which is 128 I have a place

    some like brighton are 120-128pts

    You have until 15th Jan to decide. There's no rush.

    Have you visited the universities? Checked their courses in detail (they won't be exactly the same). Looked at rankings (there's more than one). Looked at the uni-specific forums on here. Asked in the course specific Pharmacy forum... etc etc.
