    Hey, I'm hoping to apply for Pharmacy at; Nottingham, Birmingham, Keele, Bradford and Robert Gordon. However my predicted grades are currently AAC and I was wondering if there would be any point in applying to courses which are asking for AAB such as Nottingham/Birmingham. Are entry requirements usually the minimum they ask for or is there some consideration for predicted grades which are 1 grade below?

    Pharmacy doesn't select anymore, they recruit, because the wise ones don't do it!
    When Russell Group places like Nottingham and Birmingham are in Clearing for a course, that should ring ALARM BELLS!
    Do some research, start on here as to why people are just not applying.
    Read my other posts and read the thread on Poor pharmacist career prospects.
    Basically if you can get AAC then you can do better than pharmacy. People are getting in with CCD to the old polys.
    If you are desperate to do pharmacy someone will take you with those grades. Especially if you have a good PS and ref.

    They may well be able to consider you more flexibly, or make you their standard offer to see if you can achieve AAB even if predicted AAC. It may depend on the subject the C is predicted in - they might be a little concerned if it's Chemistry, for example. However, you certainly can apply - but I wouldn't suggest applying to more than one, or perhaps two at most, courses in the AAB range.

    The C is in Maths, however I'm going to be resitting C1 and C2 in the summer as I got a C and D respectively. Birmingham have already replied saying they wont consider any predicted grade below a B! So now I'm really worried.

    Don't worry, Bham were also in Clearing this summer.
    Worry that you're choosing to enter a profession in an awful lot of trouble.

    OP is not listening. OP is literally thirsting to become an overqualified and underpaid shopkeeper and will not under any circumstances take advice from anyone else.
