don’t think anyone’s made one of these yet, there was one from last year though so feel free to drop your predicted grades and where you’re thinking of applying!

I’m on a gap year now, personally I think my favourites are Bristol and manchester, as they both seem to have a focus on neuropharmacology, but I haven’t had the opportunity to look at many unis as a lot of the open days were during my exams

pharmaceutical science I think is similar to pharmacology but has more of a focus on the development of drugs side of things, like the chemical synthesis, which leads onto work in the pharmaceutical industry, but pharmacology is slightly broader and looks into how different drugs elicit their effects on the body and their properties, rather than focusing mainly on the development side of things. I’m not 100%, so it might be good to look at a few of both pharmacology and pharmaceutical science courses and compare the differences, especially in the modules they offer

I’ve sent my UCAS to Manchester, UEA (twice), UCL and Bath all for MSci or MPharmacol (and one BSc at UEA just in case)

I think the course is very niche and it’s been really hard to find others who want to study the course, so thanks for making this thread 😊

Personal statement is the worst part, I whacked mine out when I had a five free day at sixth form. I think the best way is to do one draft in one big sitting and then keep picking at it 😊

I'm doing an epq which reduces by 1 grade if I do well in it, also I checked their clearing last year and they set the grades down all the way to BBC to try and get people in. I'm pretty hopeful.

I have no idea what to include, it’s so hard now not being at school because no one is chasing me and I’m just behind! I did one for medicine last year but it was like so focused on work experience, and there’s so much help and information for medicine, whereas pharmacology being more niche i’m finding much harder
