We require grades DDC - BBC including Chemistry and Maths and/or Biology plus one further rigorous academic subject (excluding General Studies or Critical Thinking). You will also need to meet the widening participation selection criteria detailed on our application process page (`How your application is considered').
We also consider students who have obtained A-levels (or equivalent) at standard entry grades (ABB-AAB), but in subjects inappropriate for direct admission to the MPharm degree. A grade 5 (B) in English Language and Mathematics in GCSE or equivalent will also be required. We will accept C+ in the Northern Ireland reformed GCSE. In this case applicants will NOT need to meet our widening participation selection criteria.
We do not accept AS grades in place of A2-level grades.
