4 medicine rejections, applying for pharmacy

Hi guys, I am on my second gap year and have received 4 rejections on ucas but two of the med schools have put me on their waiting list. I can't take another gap year due to personal circumstances and would like to apply for pharmacy in ucas extra. I just wanted to know that if I accept an offer for pharmacy, but a medicine offer was to come through after 9th june, would it be possible to cancel my firmed pharmacy offer? I'm an achieved applicant so have already met grade requirements for the courses. If I end up starting my pharmacy degree then I do not intend to do GEM at all since its longer, more competitive and more expensive, but I don't want to close the door on potential med offers just yet. What could I do? Thanks

They said that they are OK with me accepting non medicine offers, but the issue I have is that if I firm it, wouldn't that mean that med schools can't approach me (since I've accepted an offer elsewhere)?? I'm not very knowledgeable about this sorry

Hi, i just wanted to ask because i'm in a similar position, did you end up getting an offer for med? or did you end up going for pharmacy through ucas extra? if you did go for pharmacy, did you have to do interviews?

Hey yes, I got an offer for med! Just finished off my first year at Leicester. I had a friend who did pharmacy but he didn’t require an interview (he applied to kings), he turned down their offer (which they sent last minute) to accept a place at St George medical school

Did he send a separate personal statement, or did they just use his original med one.
