    Hey,
    I sent mine off on the 25th of october, the got back to me withing 2-3 weeks, and offered me an interview the 1st of this month. Then 3 days after my interview they offered me a place.
    I was predicted All A's, in chemistry, maths, RS, and Biology AS. LSOP was a really nice place, with a really friendly atmosphere. Fingers crossed on the grades now XD

    Hey Collins okonkwo, and hazeleyez...
    i no this might be a late reply...but better now than never. i had my interview on dec and i got an offer of AAB. dont worry about the interview, all you need to no is the course structure, why LSOP, why pharmacy? and i was a medic they asked me why pharmacy instead of medicine? also..... they asked me about the roles of pharmacists, and what type of pharmacist i wanted to be. they asked about cancer treatment, and common drugs- e.g. metformin, they dont ask tricky questions, they ask really simple questions so dont worry honestly. Also they are reallly friendly!!! so dont worry once again.

    about the maths test...its like mental maths nothing hard, so u dont need alevel maths to do it. its really simple, but the time goes out really quickly. and u have to type the answer into the computer, before it goes to the next question. its more like a game than a test! hahah. And dont worry, even if u do badly in the maths test, you will get u're offer, bcoz i'm sure i got loads of questions wrong haha. and the man said the maths test, wasnt a test, but to show us, what maths questions we will be dealing with in first year of pharmacy. anyways, hope this has helped, and if u want to know....feel free to help. and good luck for u're interview! you'll do brilliantly!

    I was also a med student and got two straight rejections, and still waiting for Keele to reply back! But I've got an offer from LSoP; I think I'd rather do pharmacy over medicine anyway!

    Hey, the maths test was really easy! Just know your GCSE stuff; standard form, indices, basic multiplication etc. It was so easy, I got like 27/30 so you'll be fine trust me! And it doesnt form part of the selection process, so dw if you do bad!

    The interview is fine aswell! For me, they just wanted to know why LSoP, why pharmacy, about my work exp. and anything I read in media etc. They were really welcoming aswell, because I was really nervous to begin with, but they really helped me to settle in!

    Just find something in the media that really interested you, and you can talk about that!

    Good luck!
