    hi, please could you tell me what was the test at uclan was like and
    what was on it. I have mine on wednesday.
    The test in on maths, english and chemistry. the maths equations were to find a % of x, converting grams to mg, simple multiplying. there was a question naming the functional group of paracetamol. there was also a scenario question which had 5 questions which were all multiple choices and all the answers were in the scenario. there are only 15 questions altogether and you'll get 1 hour to do this and complete an essay which they give. learn simple conversions e.g grams to mg, kg to mg and g, ml to litres , as this will help you a lot in the test. Hope this helped... Good luck.. let me know how it goes

    Hi there, what kind of english essay did you have to complete? Was it an essay that you had to write on a pharmacy issue/about a drug or anything along those lines?

    Hi, it was an essay on the roles of a pharmacist so yours might be different but will be pharmacy related, nothing about drugs. the test had a question of the functional group of paracetamol which had to be named. hope this helps

    hi, there is a little group ice breaker and then the actual interview is with all the pharmacy applicants so probably about 20 people, you will have to discuss about a picture , the test is easy and simple questions from as chemistry and biology and an essay to write about pharmacy.
