Question: I'm not getting as much study time as my friend. What shall I do?
Answer: The GPhC unfortunately have not mandated a minimum amount of study time that pre-reg pharmacists should get. The best advice would be to have a discussion with your tutor and see if you can negotiate. Some of your peers may not be getting any study time at all. Be clear about why you need extra study time and how it is going to benefit you. Above all, be realistic.
