    Interviews tend to vary from university to university. I might be able to help you if you can be a bit more specific. Which uni is it? I will give you an example of my interview. These were some of the questions asked by Medway in my interview. As I have already posted this in other threads, I a just going to copy it. I will just bullet point the important things to save your time. So here it goes :

    - Why Pharmacy?
    - Why Kent?
    - Qualities and skills required by a pharmacist
    - Basic arithmetic questions e.g. 9% of 200
    - Work experience, if any
    - Short questionnaire regarding health to ensure you can practice pharmacy safely
    - Q&A at the end
    - Interview was 30 mins long
    - More of a conversation
    - Wear something smart
    - Familiarise yourself with your personal statement
    - Don't stress yourself over it
    - Talk naturally

    Obviously there were no chemistry related questions asked but I have heard that some unis might give you scrap paper and ask you to draw the structure of aspirin/paracetamol.

    If you want to search for a specific university...then you can look for old threads.

    Otherwise for interview questions and general pharmacy degree information have a look at the Pharmacy degree guide

    I have also applied to DMU and Portsmouth. I applied to Portsmouth back in October and only received an offer on the 3rd of December. So I wouldn't worry too much if I was you and as far as DMU is considered, I received a letter from them saying that due to the high number of applicants this year, they will not be giving out any offers/interviews before the 15th of January so don't expect anything from them any time soon. Hope this helps
