However, it turned out that I absolutely sucked at chemistry! I completely failed my first year of A-levels and subsequently had to leave sixth form. Reluctant to give up my dreams of becoming a pharmacist, I enrolled in a college and re-sat my exams. This time I aced them and got five offers to study pharmacy- happy days, right’) Wrong. I still struggled tremendously with chemistry and late one night I re-evaluated my skills and interests.
The next morning. I woke up and made the bold decision to cancel my pharmacy offers. I realised I wasn’t destined to become a pharmacist. I didn’t know what I was going to do and to make things worse my grades plummeted. Determined to not allow a few exam results to determine my fate, I managed to get a place at university and vowed that I’d do whatever it takes to get a 1st class degree and boost my employability, so that employers would overlook my A-levels.
