Unfortunately, it's usually your pharmCAS GPA. Although some schools may end up calculating their own GPA based on their pre-reqs.

Each school has their own policy with regard to relevant GPA. Check with the schools you are interested in.

Yep. If you go to the PharmCAS site, it will tell you which schools use their service and which don't. If your PharmCAS GPA is disturbingly low, you might consider applying to schools that don't use PharmCAS. Some are pretty generous in their calculation of your final GPA.
