Pharmacy and business

Hi, i am a year 13 student studying biology, chemistry and maths for a level. I originally wanted to do medicine for uni but didnt get the predicted grades and ucat score (AAB and 2220). I am now wanting to apply for a different course at uni, thinking of pharmacy or business related degree). I have no work experience in business but got a 6 in it at gcse. I wanted to get some advice of which one is better in the long run. Personally i dont feel like i will enjoy handing out medicines all day for the rest of my life and business does interest me. Ive heard business pays more as a starting salary compared to pharmacy and has lower years of study. I am thinking between pharmacy and acca or cima.
Do you think I have a good chance at getting in for the acca or cima degree? And what course is more benefitting in the long run?

Then you need to some more research into what Pharmacists - especially those working in hospitals - actually do.
