    Hi
    I am taking a gap year next year because I want to do medicine but I didn’t get the grades in AS, do I’m gonna apply for 2019 entry with my (hopefully) good A2 results. My question is that say if I don’t get the grades I need for medicine in A2, can I apply through clearing for pharmacy instead? Will I be able to go to the uni I want for pharmacy through clearing? Also what’s the pros and cons of this? Is a gap year altogether better even if I don’t get the medicine grades? I would like a year off but sometimes I think if I don’t get the grades for medicine the year off would be pointless

    There probably won't be many places in clearing but it won't be impossible , I wouldn't rely on it as a definite option. You have to contend with finding accomodation a bit later than everybody else and make quick decisions but it does work out for some people.
