Hi i have just done my exams- biology,chemistry and physics predicted A,B,B. I have applied for 'medicinal and biological chem' and 'chemistry and medicinal chemistry' as my insurance however i have now decided i want to do pharmacy. There is also the problem that i was slightly/moderatly ill for a week and a bit, of my exams, and i believe i may end up with BBC physics being the C. Is there any chance of getting into pharmacy through clearing for a BBB offer uni with the BBC????.

I have done work experience in a hospital and also a dentist. O yeah and before i forget i have done general studies probably get a C.

Really lost on what to do lol!

there is probably a very high chance you can get in pharmacy with those grades. you can probably ring them up now and see what they have to say and what your chances will be cos lots of pharmacy schools are still in extra so they still have places.

but you'll just have to wait til results day to see for sure. good luck

Thx for the reply. I was just wondering whether when you said i had a gd chance were you refering to my predicted grades of BBC? just i thought pharmacy was quite competitive (one of the reasons i didnt apply in the first place)

Mostly looking for 300 but you should get in thru clearing with 280

just had a quick look on UCAS and some MPharms are coming up thru extra so im sure a couple will go to clearing.

also these 2 you will be elligible for and they are accredited etc.
Bradford 280pts (BBC)
Huddersfield 280pts
So if you really want to do pharm then I am sure you could easily get on to these two courses thru clearing, might even be worth calling them and getting them as a back up now.

no iam talking about BBC grades. just ring up all the unis that offer BBB now and see what they'll say. most will probably have places.

i thought it was competitive as well but its not really


look on ucas extra to see unis with places now, i hope this link works http://search.ucas.co.uk/cgi-bin/hsr...8&button1.y=10

yeah, unis are desperate to fill up the spaces. i really don't know why we are given the impression that pharmacy is very competitive and hard to get into like medicine :confused:

just to point out that the Royal pharm soc only seem to like these courses http://www.pharmacycareers.org.uk/ed...l.asp?ia_id=40 might be worth trying to get on one of them.

all pharmacy courses are accredited by the society, so the soc likes them all!

you have to forgive my ignorance. I know nothing about the society or pharmacy other than a couple of mates in the profession.

I just did not see Huddersfield on the list off the socs website, so thought that certain pharm courses are non-accredited, had a quick look and Hudds first intake is this year, so im sure the soc will update in due course. (thats prob one of the reason for the lowish grade requirements)

its ok yeah hudds is new and unis are only fully accredited after the first intake of students have finished their 4 year course, but it doesn't matter cos they'll all get fully accredited in the end.

Portsmouth seems to be in clearing too, their places get snapped up quite quickly, I'm pretty sure they let people in with BBC.

Last year I had a look at the courses left at the end of August in clearing for pharmacy, they were Medway, Sunderland and Wolverhampton.
