    Any advice will be appreciated, thankyou

    Hey! I had mine about a week ago, and it wasn't as bad as I was expecting.

    You do have to answer 2 short (and quite easy - I got them right and I haven't done maths since GCSE) maths questions (just converting units and simple times-ing)

    You have to do something to do with chemistry/biology (so draw a molecule/drug, someone had label a diagram of the heart I think)

    Don't be worried, everyone is lovely, and before the interview you've got time to chat to other applicants, and depending on what group you're in, you'll get a tour too

    Good luck!

    I've heard that you have to label some functional groups, few basic maths questions, and labelling the heart. It's an individual interview I think!
