    It is so long ago that I was a student I can't advise you on what yo need to do. However I cannot imagine Lloyds being upset that you once had a placement with Boots

      1- you have to apply twice, onc application for summer placement, the other one ( deadline end of may for a lot of chains) for pre-reg placement.
      2- you will not get a place if you show no work experience! they won't be annoyed..... put on boots placement, just PREPARE yourself to questions like ( Why Lloyds, not Boots), (what did you learn through your placement)....etc
      3- remember if you are flexible with the location, you would not face any problems, otherwise you might compete for one place with another 9 students.
      in one of my interviews, i was told 31 students put this place as 1st option and they only have 4 pharmacies in that town. i smilled and said" quite happy with relocating to the adjacent towns, booom got the place".
      it's is a fact that competition for places is increasing

        I completed my summer placement with lloyds last month. Don't worry about applying for the pre-reg yet, just complete the applicatins for the summer placements.

        With Boots you have to do the summer placement with them in the 3rd year to be considered for the pre-reg year.

        However with lloyds you can still apply for the pre-reg if you don't do the summer placement with them in your 3rd year. If you do the placement with them in your 3rd year you will get an automatic interview for the third year.
