I’m on my 2nd gap year
I heard scary stuff about pharmacy (how there are no jobs)
A nurse told me I should do pharmacy because my grades are too good for nursing (I have Abb)

I REALLYYYY don’t know what to do and clearing is so close.

I think pharmacy and nursing have stable jobs. If you enjoy being more hands on then definitely go for nursing. If you dont enjoy nursing in the end then you can transfer to a different course and/or uni at the end of the first year so you dont need to take another gap year.

Well, do you want to be a pharmacist or a nurse? They are very different careers.

As someone who just dropped from nursing only do it if you have the 100% passion to do so not even 99%, it will be a challenge from day 1, it's very interesting but the stress of placements really got to me. I have a friend who does a pharmacy apprenticeship, she enjoys it but there are bad days. Both careers revolve around people so emotions are always changing with the constantly changing atmosphere.
