    Hi all! just somewhere to ask any GEM related question/queries.
    I'll begin as I'm somewhat stressing out myself lol:


    Advice needed!

    I'm a graduate applying for GEM with a Masters degree in Pharmacy. When filling in my UCAS application I struggled to find the correct option as its a 4 year masters degree, so I added it as a standard degree with classification of "First class honours". Whilst that is equivalent, my degree classification as a masters should have been written as a distinction, not First class honours. The percentage/classification is equivalent but like the rest of us I'm starting to doubt myself and stress Should I have tried to add it in as a distinction and would it be an issue now. I've emailed my chosen unis a short while ago. Is this going to be a big problem and if so would it be ammendable, or am I just overly stressing . Thanks in advance lol

    I can't believe that there was no option to put a masters degree in. Anyway, you've emailed to they will tell you what to do. No point in stressing now.

    I manually put in Distinction for mine, but I did a postgrad masters, rather than an undergrad one.
