    It's interesting when placed in the right context i.e. the medical sde of things but learning about useless chemistry really, less politely put, gets on my breasts.

    yeah. ..fair enough..i agree:yes:

    I've not yet studied it yet, but I'm sure that it doesn't have all aspects of chemistry in. I think (correct me if I'm wrong) its mainly organic chemistry and biochemistry, but then theres also other aspects of pharmacy that are not chemistry based, such as pharmacy practice and theraputics.
    Thank God for that! I thought I was the only one! I detest Chemistry...only because I'm not good at it. When it comes to learning I'm ok but when it comes to exams and all goes to pot then thats when I start hating it. Pharmacy should be interesting haha. When I went to the open day though it didn't seem to bad but they always like to trick you into doing things.

    Yea I am the same as you. I do like chemistry, but when it comes to exams I completely and utterly fail and hate it. I nearly cried when I walked out of my final a level chemistry exam in june, coz I felt it went that badly. Luckily, I like organic chemistry and biochemistry (likely to be pharmacology though) so I'm hoping that I am right

    I think it will be interesting. I chose it coz I like the work once your qualified (or in pre-reg) I love the variation of work you can do, the different environments you can work in etc. It seems bery rewarding. At the moment I only really dispense scripts and that (dispensary assistant) and thats fulfiling enough for me

    If you are doing pharmacy, then you should enjoy chemistry. If you don't, I don't think you will enjoy your course, considering you will study it for a looong time.

    That's just my opinion. :woo:

    Hehe fair enough

    Some people on this thread don't like it, and as far as I've seen, if you go into community/possibly hospital pharmacy after you have qualified, then you don't have to look at chemistry ever again. I think thats what some of the people who don't like it will possibly do. The above is from my experience, it could be wrong

    I do agree with you anyway

    There is maths in pharmacy but not too much and i think they tend to get it out of the way in first year

    I hated chemistry before starting pharmacy and really struggled with it at school. In pharmacy though, it has been my best subject and really enjoy it now!!
