Pharmacy is regarded as one of the toughest careers anyone can go for. Just like other noble professions like Medicine and Law, it involves much reading and research.
To study Pharmacy in Nigeria, you must pass your SSCE result very well, and apply for admission to any university of your choice that offers it.
After applying for admission, do well to check the cut-off marks for the school you chose.

The minimum duration for the course would be 5-6 years, unlike other countries, plus your mandatory one-year NYSC after varsity.
With the details above, your chances of becoming a doctor or surgeon are secured. Don’t be deceived, BS Pharm is highly competitive when it comes to getting admission, so you need a high range score to get admitted.
