I've heard that some unis like UCL are making offer holders take the autumn exams so they can get 'real' A level grades, is this true?

No idea - I have an offer from UCL (it's my insurance) and I haven't heard about anything like that from UCL or anyone else I know that has an offer from UCL.

Did you do any sort of extra reading for your course? If so, what books did you read

How are you feeling about your A level results given that they're being made up from your predicted grades, are you confident that youll still be able to carry on with your original post-18 plans?
I remember A levels were stressful enough back then, cant image having all this as well going on as well.

No - pharmacy wasn't something I initially wanted to do. I applied for medicine at Nottingham, but got rejected and offered a list of alternative courses. I picked pharmacy, did the interview, and got in. I have downloaded most of the books on the reading list though (no way I'm paying £50 for a book I can get as a pdf for free). So I've mainly read books for medicine, and not for pharmacy.

I feel fairly confident - I only need AAB, and I've been predicted A*AA. In the mocks, first year was meh, but I've really improved in second year (I got A*A*B in my last set of mocks which were during the week that the government announced schools were closing).

Oh, I'm planning to do medicine! Where do you get the free pdfs for the books? I thought you are only allowed to apply for 4 medical couurses on ucas so was pharmacy your 5th choice?

I just searched them up e.g. 'Physicochemical Principles of Pharmacy free pdf' and found them (although I'd recommend using a VPN and good anti-virus - you don't want these websites knowing where you're from especially since most of them are dodgy). Pharmacy was not my 5th choice - Pharmacology at UCL was. Pharmacy was offered as an alternative choice because I got rejected from medicine at Nottingham - not all universities offer this (my other three just rejected me, didn't care what I did after and didn't offer me any alternative courses), and I wouldn't know what to do if Nottingham didn't offer me any alternatives - I didn't want to do pharmacology yet I put it down (I'm an idiot).

Why are you choosing to do an integrated pre reg?

I need a 5-year degree for the country I'm moving to next year, and I liked the sound of doing one - a 6 months without studying is easier than a whole year imo.
