    There isn't really much need to know anything, it's nothing you can revise for. Although I suggest you prepare for the interview, it's a group interview but still is rather 'individual'. Prep for the normal kinds of Pharmacy questions!

    Who had their LJMU interview and aptitude test yesterday? Because I did and I got my decision today telling me my interview was unsuccessful via UCAS. I'm really gutted to be honest because Liverpool was one of the places I really wanted to study. I think my decision lied solely in the aptitude test I had and it may have not gone so well as for the Interview, I've now realised that group set interviews are not exactly good for me as it really puts me under pressure becoming nervous and becoming blank :/ I think I would've been better off with a one to one interview as I feel there is more direct contact with the Interviewer and because it is just you in the room with the Interviewer, there is far less pressure. What shall I do? I really wanted to go LJMU.

    Aw that sucks :hugs:

    Well at the open day they did say you could contact them requesting feedback so I would suggest you start from there? Just ask them what part of the process did you not do so well on etc. Maybe they'll reconsider or something

    Also, do you have anywhere else left?

    Good luck :hugs:

    They did say yes you could request feedback and the aptitude test you could probably do again if that was the part that you did badly in resulting in a Unsuccessful application.

    I don't really think they look at the interview even though I was quite nervous so at the moment I'm basing it on a poor test performance.

    Hopefully I can sort something out as I did really like Liverpool.

    I also had a Interview at Wolverhampton Uni but I haven't heard back from them yet, its been nearly a month now and DeMontfort Uni (DMU In Leicester) do Pharmacy which doesn't require an Interview so all I need to do is just wait for an offer from them.

    what r the questions during the informal interview?
    It depends, they change it quite often unfortunately. Although it isn't based on our personal statement so make sure you know the general pharmacy questions!

    -"Why Pharmacy?", "Why LJMU?" and my group got asked a Chemistry based question too so just be prepared for that!

    The admissions tutor explained to me that both the 'informal' interview and aptitude test are used in assessing so it is important to give a good impression! Dress smart

    Good luck

    All they asked me was 'Why Liverpool/LJMU?', 'Why Pharmacy?' and 'Tell me about your hobbies?' That was it, just something to get to know you off basically.

    "Tell me something special about Benzene"

    Although, they will change the questions. They just want to see what you know!
