Consider your options carefully. It is likely that you are expecting top grades in your Leaving Certificate if you are considering pharmacy as a career so there will be plenty of doors open to you. Make sure you do plenty of work experience in different areas of pharmacy and if it is healthcare you are interested in then consider getting some work experience in medicine etc. I know quite a few people who have completed a pharmacy degree only to realise they actually want to do medicine!

Politics as a subject to be introduced at Leaving Cert

Politics as a subject to be introduced at Leaving Cert

Education chiefs are planning to bring politics to the classroom.

Knowing how TD's and senators are elected could net students valuable' points' in the Leaving Cert in future, the Irish Independent has learned.

The new subject, titled 'Politics and Society' is aimed at making young people more active citizens.

One of the first tasks facing the next Education Minister, will be to decide when the new optional subject will be introduced. The consultation process has revealed huge support among young people and teachers for its introduction.

Seek Training And Education

  

This is not optional. You never know too much. Training and education keep you flexible, strong, and growing. Unless you grow, you wither away.
