    I'd laugh if she were on TSR reading this right now!

    But either way, good luck! How did your interview go regardless - are you hoping to go into community?
    I think it went ok to be honest, it was very chilled but to be honest I wanna go into hospital...had to be careful about what I said there to avoid them from thinking that

    Haha, fair enough - a couple of my good friends have received excellent pre-reg locations with Boots, but they're going to reject them because they want to go into hospital / industry.

    So have you applied for summer placements for hospital?

    Oh, never mind - make sure to reflect well on any university-based hospital placements in your Pharmalife application and I'm sure you'll be fine. They are damn competitive, and there are a lot more actual pre-reg places than summer placement places, so don't worry about not getting one!

    I go to Aston and I'm not gonna lie it is difficult especially the medicinal chemistry side of things but I am enjoying it, do you study Pharmacy ?

    Ah cool, good pharmacy school

    I'm a Brighton, just finished my 3rd year. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the pharmaceutical sciences side of things and more a fan of pharmacology / clinical therapeutics

    So do you do your research project next year / have you decided what area / specific project you want to do?

    Ah fair enough, we're pretty much in the same situation - we have to submit our choices and then we get told which one we've got at the beginning of 4th year.

    Hospital - much prefer it to community, especially more so now that the wages in community are going down. May potentially consider going into academia thereafter.

    Yeah sounds like we're in a very similar situation but yeah I think community is to be avoided at the moment...good luck with your studies

    It wasn't too bad thanks, it was so chilled. We had a verbal OSCE to do with a prescription item, a one to one interview which was based on working out our strengths (it didn't contain any of the typical interview questions i.e why lloyds, why community etc.) and then a group exercise where we had to decide which employee out of a list we were given deserves an award. Have you got the interview coming up ?
