    i'm an access to bio-sciences student which don't have any a level and gcse background except English and maths.
    my favorite sub is bio and i wanted to apply for medicine but near unies ( Cardiff and London ones ) don't accept access as a good entry requirement for med so i chose pharmacy cuz i really wanna to spend my time on a high level career.
    however, i don't like organic chemistry but i like to research and work in lab to discover new drugs
    now i really don't know what to do
    could u please give me some suggestions?

    You should do Pharmacology then, because you want to do lab-based work. Pharmacy normally leads to community/retail pharmacies.

    go to pharmaceutical sciences/ pharmacology, i say this as a 4th year pharmacy student who initially went from pharm sciences directly into pharmacy, but don't do pharmacy if you don't like it, pharm sciences is what you want to go for, not pharmacy
