    I have an interview coming up at Reading too and don't really know what to expect, although i have read that they ask mainly generic questions with a few maths/chemistry related problems!

    I have an interview coming up at Reading too and don't really know what to expect, although i have read that they ask mainly generic questions with a few maths/chemistry related problems!

    found a post by someone else and they ask
    Why did you choose Pharmacy?
    Why Reading?
    What skills have you got, that will enable you to successfully help members of the public?
    (The guy asked me about my A-levels and how I was finding them)
    How was your work experience at the community pharmacy?
    What valuable things did you gain from your work experience?
    (He gave me a sheet which contained two maths questions, problem solving they were, I got them both right, your not supposed to use a calculator)
    (He gave me another sheet that showed two seperate drug structures, asked me to name them, it was asprin and paracetamol, he asked me about the different functional groups, he also asked what would happen if I performed base hydrolysis on the molecules and what my by-product would be, it was easy tbh)
    He asked me how pharmacy has changed over the years.
    He asked me whether I had any questions.

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU!! When is your interview?
