Failed 1st Year In PharmacyWatch this thread
Unfortunately, I have seen my results on the last 3 resits that I was supposed to pass, and have failed them, meaning I can’t progress onto second year in UEA. Also, my advisor has told me that I can’t resit the year, or redo the 3 failed exams next year unless I appeal. I’m so lost and I don’t know what to do. I haven’t even told my parents yet and I know how disappointed they’ll be at me. Can I reapply for the course in a different uni, and try apply for an alternate course at the university?
At the end of the day, do you actually want to be a pharmacist?
I know one girl who dropped out of one university and had a gap year, and then started again somewhere else.
I would try and talk to your personal tutor again this week and ask if it is worth an appeal if you want to continue, but there's nothing wrong in admitting you picked the wrong course and starting fresh on something you really want to do in Sept 2022.
OK, so you'll have 9k you have to pay off, and your parents may be upset for a while, but I'm sure they would rather see you happy than slog through another 4 yrs of pharmacy, and be miserable, especially if you got in through Clearing and it wasn't your original choice of course, or you aren't really that interested in the subject, you've found out as the year has gone on. Or even that Uni life isn't for you, and you might prefer to look at other options like the Open University?
