    Keele are lovely! I had my interview in 2010, so it may have changed, this is just my experience.
    The interview itself is rather informal, they will ask a couple of simple questions like why pharmacy, why Keele, tell me the difference between hospital and community pharmacy etc.
    As for the questions, there's some simple dosage calculations to work out and there was a question where you needed to pick out the ethical issues in a topic. Pretty straightforward.

    The calculations are not too difficult, I promise you! I only have a C grade GCSE in maths, and I didn't have a problem so you should be fine
    As for the interview, let your personality shine through! I smiled at my interviewer when my name was called and she commented that I had been the first person she had interviewed to smile and that really helped as she took a liking to me. Things like that can really make a difference!

    I didn't go on the tour, I'd all ready seen around on an open day and had a long journy back so we left straight after the interview

    Got an interview next month!

    And what's the test like?

    Thanks!
    Congrats, It was alright, they wanted to know about me as a person and If I would fit into the Keele beliefs and values and stuff.

    And The test wasn't to bad, just simple maths but some little twists in there, just make sure you read stuff twice, and there are two or three different question papers so can't help you there.

    Just be smart, confident and yourself, they will see through you if you dont

    If you get an offer and decide to firm it let me know

    GOOD LUCK!
