Hi!! I don’t believe anyone has started a discussion on this yet so thought it would be a bright idea to start one.

How about we all say where we’ve applied, predicted UCAS grades, GCSE grades etc and get to know each other a bit more?

Hi Donna!

Obviously I’m as clueless as you as to how good those grades are as I’m only a student like you - however your UCAS grades are so good and over the grade requirements that I’d assume you shouldn’t worry too much about some of your GCSE grades. You don’t have any fails and they’re usually only looking for a grade 4/ sometimes 6 in English and maths minimum and AAB predominantly at a level so I reckon you’ll be fine.

I’ve applied to Keele, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester Met as a last resort ahahahaha. I’ve got an interview for University of Manchester on the 6th of November however that is the only UCAS track update I’ve had so far.

My UCAS predicted grades are AAB and my gcse grades were a distinction, 5A’s, 5B’s and a C.

I don’t believe there’s much to prepare, I think it’s a 15 minute interview but a 3 hour day from 1-4pm. My interview offer came in 2 days after them receiving my application though x

I’m sure it’ll be ok though for both of us, I’m glad someone found the thread because I’ve not yet been able to find many other pharm students

Hi, yes you must study chemistry a level to do the course as a lot of the degree is chemistry based

Yes, to study pharmacy chemistry is a vital aspect of the course and you must have studied it at a level. Unfortunately this is the case with lots of biology based degrees, however dependent on university you might be able to find a course that doesn’t require chemistry.

Thanks for the reply. University of Kent will take biology only for their foundation 5 years course ( they email me with this effect). I do not know if there are others.

Hi all. Do you guys did any work experience in relation to pharmacy that will go into your personal statement. Do university preference or expect work experience for application to be successful?

I didn’t do any work experience in a pharmacy itself but I did clinical work in a care home and so used that as an example of work experience in my personal statement. While if you haven’t had any extra experience it shouldn’t necessarily affect your application they would welcome anything extra you’ve done one would assume - this could create an application they prefer over others if they have to choose from someone who has or hasn’t - yet it’s important to note that your application could be stronger in other senses.

No worries. It’s not a common occurrence for courses to allow simply biology but as you say, usually foundation courses are more lenient on the entry requirements in regards to subjects taken and grades acquired.

for work experience, it doesn't necessarily have to be in a pharmacy but anything based around it. u can link the skills you developed to that of what a pharmacist is required to have.

hope that makes some sort of sense and that it helps

Hi!! I’ve got my interview on that day too, I contacted the university and there’s no admissions test, just a 15 minute interview. If you go to https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/stu...as-visit-days/ there’s some more information. Hope this helps
