Why do you want to study Medicine?

Why do you want to study Pharmacy?

They are different and one is not the backup for the other. Have you done any work experience?

I haven't done any work experience as I am in year 11 (its early I know but I don't like not knowing stuff)

I want to study medicine as I really want to help people and I find it interesting, especially genetics, but my family say it is too hard for me to do
My family want me to study pharmacy as a back up but apparently it is boring.

There are some people who believe that pharmacists are glorified shopkeepers... And, Medicine is incredibly tough and takes a lot of time and effort.

Well Pharmacy is not a backup for Medicine - it is a completely different career!

Physicians Associate (https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/exp...cian-associate), on the other hand, can be. PA have a very similar role to junior doctors and the starting pay is higher than FY1s. However, only UCLan offer an undergraduate PA course. https://www.uclan.ac.uk/courses/mpas...te-studies.php

I think you'll need to do some work experience first. Have you considered starting genetics proper at Uni?

One more thing, don't do what your family wants you to do; do what you want to do. It's your life.
