    yeah any topic in chemistry or maybe biology could be something in organic chemistry... well they could ask you something related to organic chemistry or maybe biology depending on your interviewer... and you might not get asked extended questions...i got asked those questions cos i said i didnt like biology so much lol

    i'd reading & medway

    reading ask some complicated bio [if u're doing the sub] & chem questions..they also have a maths test aswell..but some people get asked general questions so it probably depends on the interviewer..anyway got an offer

    medway was just general & mental maths questions..so not much to worry about..but they haven't replied to me..had my interview about 2 weeks ago..so assuming its going to be a rejection

    bradford..this wednesday but in the letter it says open day & doesn't mention anything about interview ..so got no clue whts gonna happen
    Hey, just wondering if you got an offer from Kent?

    As you probably already saw, this thread was from last year so I'm not sure the original poster/s will reply. But, if you have a question about Medway you should make a new thread or post any questions here and I'll (we) try to help

    Well nothing is given away from MSOP in terms of the interview, I'm afraid. Other than it will last about 15 minutes...

    Your best bet is to go over the common questions you'll typically hear. Why choose Pharmacy? Why choose Medway? Perhaps your strengths, weaknesses... etc etc.

    The most important thing to do is to relax. As long as you're not nervous and you keep the conversation flowing, they will see you are a confident and (since you have the grade predictions already) competent candidate. Good luck.
