Hi, I have already applied for pharmacy and in fact, I also applied thorugh discretionary admission. I just wrote an essay about myself and my passion, illustrating with examples, so I did not submit any recommendation form. Not sure if a letter is needed though. Anyway, I think there isnt any limit to the letter if you want to submit but it shldnt be too long (eg over 1 page).

hmm is your B chemistry or biology? I think it might be harder to get in with a B in these two subjects since they require "good passes in biology and chemistry". But it all depends on the quality of grades they get this year. Last year's 10th percentile was AAA/B but I'm pretty sure it would rise this year since it's THE dragon and horse batches.

I'm just a little worried because i heard from my friend today that her friend got accepted into pharmacy already but i haven't been ><

I have friends who got accepted into Pharmacy and received their letters last Friday. And friends who got shortlisted for Medicine last week also. For those who applied to Medicine/Law/Dentistry, as long as you receive nothing from the other faculties, means you still have hopes to get shortlisted. Patience.....
