I finished my GCSE’s this year achieving grade 6 for chemistry, physics and biology, grade 7 for english literature and history and grade 8 for french, german, english language and maths. I originally wanted to continue on with the school I went to by attending the sixth form they offer. My subjects at first were chemistry, physics, maths and further maths since I enjoyed these subjects but I got an offer for an apprenticeship in a pharmacy which meant I left sixth form and pursued that instead.
I’ve wanted to work in healthcare for a while so I aw this as the perfect opportunity and I took it. However, now I’m thinking I wish I had continued with my studies so that I could try to get into university to study medicine.
At the end of this apprenticeship I can then go onto the level 4 BTEC diploma for pharmacy clinical services and then an undergraduate course for MPharm (I think). Would it be possible to either go from the level 4 diploma to undergraduate medicine or go from undergraduate pharmacy to graduate medicine? I know nothing about the process since I always dreamed about this career path but never looked into it. I’ve read things where people say something about pre-reg and 2:1 which I don’t understand the meaning of.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
