No It is okay please do not apologise.

I am enjoying pharmacy there is many changes happening to pharmacists. I do not know if you heard about it but pharmacists graduate from 2025 have prescribing qualification so we can prescribe, which is something I am looking for.
Currently revising for my final exam. Realised now no matter what uni you get into, self study is the only way you can improve.

I did not apply to Birmingham Uni I ended up picking Aston. Do you want to pick Birmingham?

Lovely to hear that you're enjoying the course, and yes I did hear about the prescribing qualification that's also something that pushed me to pharmacy.
Yes, I did pick Birmingham Uni through UCAS extra after some phone calls with the uni I was told i should receive a conditional offer but just waiting now.
Fingers crossed.

i applied with predicted ABB
I ended up getting rejected by UOB surprisingly as i’d called prior and they said I would likely receive a conditional offer
I’m now applying to Aston, did you apply with a pharmacy personal statement or did you want to do something else prior

I’m sorry to hear that. Did they provide a reason why they rejected you?
I applied to aston with a personal statement, not with a pharmacy one, but it was similar to it. I applied with a medicine personal statement
Thank you there was no reason given just a straight rejection.
I am not sure if I should rewrite a personal statement for Aston as mine is currently catered to dentistry.

Is there a possibility you could try and make it both relevant to pharmacy and dentistry. I know it can be hard but since both professions are in the healthcare field, you may be able to talk about both of them. I can’t remember what were my AS level grades but I think it was 1A 2A*s or something.
Yes I would have to rewrite it and send it to them as soon as possible
Those are very good grades wow
