    Hey, well I have an interview here soon so was wondering how it actually is if anyone else had had the interview yet?!

    Also if anyone is currently doing the course, how are you finding it?

    I've got an interview from john moores on 15th April:cool: I'm really not sure what to expect either But I'm just reading posts in the pharmacy threads of people who've had interviews. I think the questions would be similarr

    Hopefully they'll be similar lol

    Going from what I've heard from other people- its not like a main stream standardised test like UKCAT is for medicine- so you cant do special preparation for it. The only thing I'm sure of at this stage is that its not as hard :P :P I can't find much info about any standardised that you have to sit for entrance into pharmacy on the internet either PM if you find anything

    Thanks and that's what I was thinking. I couldn't find anything about it!

    Don't really understand the point of it honestly. Interview sure, but a test....

    The test is part of the interview process and you will do it on the day of the interview. You won't be able to use a calculator so it will test your raw understanding of calculations. The questions are written in a way that they test your thought process and make sure you read questions properly. All the necessary skills of a pharmacist. Overall, it's pretty much a test of common sense.

    A simple search of the LJMU website will provide you with this link: http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/PBS/101378.htm

    Tells you why they do it, and some information about it.

    The interview itself is also undertaken in a different way than other universities. The last I heard is they're still doing group interviews with various questions.

    You don't need any - otherwise it wouldn't be a test

    The information on that page should be enough to give you an idea of what goes on. There is nothing taxing or complicated about the paper and that is why the information on there is so brief. Also, giving you less information tests how you are able to deal with the unknown and tackle a problem without much prior knowledge.

    Try not to worry about it and focus on your interview answers and questions.

    The questions were fine but the arrangement wasn't. They had about 7 of us in a room and they asked the same qs to each of us. I really wish it was just a single one-to-one interview! I got an offer though, so I'm happy

    - You will need to bring your own pencil, calculator, rubber and black pen. The University will not provide you with these materials on the day

    - You will not be permitted to use the calculator on your mobile phone

    - Mobile phones must be switched off in the test room

    - Section one of the aptitude test assesses applicants’ ability to effectively communicate in written English. This section must be completed in black pen

    - Applicants’ ability to communicate effectively in written English will include an assessment based on criteria of legibility, spelling and grammar

    - You must complete all personal details on test papers when instructed to do so. The required information will include your UCAS number. You will be permitted to bring this into the test room on a plain piece of paper containing no other writing or drawings


    - You will have 50 minutes to complete the aptitude test

    - The interview will last about 30 minutes
