    I haven't had an interview but from what I've read make sure you have some
    knowledge on current research so, read article from new Scientist etc. And just
    overall try to stay calm. They sometime ask why you've chosen course and
    university? Work experience and what you've gained from it? What you would
    like to do with the degree? Hobbies you have? I would try to expand on any
    answer in your mind as they sometime just keep asking you to expand your
    answer. It happened to my friend who applied to dentistry.


    Hope it helps!!
    Good luck. Don't worry you'll be fine.
    I'm nervous about any interviews I get.

    anyone know why John Moores interview people and Queens don't for Pharmacy?
    And Pharmacy at queens is rated 2nd in the UK and john Moores is 40 sumtin. So you would think it would be the other way about.
    Its just so much hassle flying from Ireland to Liverpool just for an Interview and apparently its really informal anyway.
    And i went to the open day in October so ino already what the university is like!!
    Just wish they would give me an offer with no interview like queens lol

    My interview on the 9th Feb and i have no idea what to expect. Are we expected to know really complicated stuff about drugs and how long does the interview last?
    Also i've heard theres an apptitude test with an essay question. Are we supposed to write an essay with knowledge from the top of our head or do they give us guidance points.
    It would be really helpful if someone whose attended an interview recently can give me advice,

    thanks

    Interview was nothing to worry about, the fact that it was a group interview actually calmed me down a lot. It just seemed like quite a friendly chat in the end. The obvious questions, why liverpool, why pharmacy, what makes a good pharmacist ect.
    The only academic kinda question they asked was about aspirin, they just wanted you to give them a fact about it, nothing difficult at all!
    Got an offer the following day, BBB
