Check out the pharmacy applicants 2023 thread here.

And check out some useful resources for an MPharm PS and interviews here.

Hope this helps! :smile:

Just do another degree course. You didn't even have an interest in being a pharmacist so see this as a blessing in disguise allowing you to pursue what you want instead of selling your life down the river to please your parents (who I suspect if they're the types to impose upon you a specific course and career, are the types to never be pleased with anything you do in your life anyway - so the sooner you stop doing stuff for them and start doing it for yourself, the better).

Did you "grow" an interest in healthcare or did you purposefully convince yourself of that to suit your parent's wishes though?
