Hello!
I have a couple of interviews coming up (Uni of Brighton interview this Saturday, eek) and I'm trying my best to prepare for them, but I'm really unsure as to where I'm supposed to start?

If anybody can offer me any sort of advice, I will be forever grateful!

I have Brighton this Saturday too!!! at 12:30? I have had an offer from Sussex a few weeks ago I suggest you reflect on your personal statement, look up on organic chemistry, current affairs around drugs and pharmacy, and why you want to study pharmacy, look into the uni too i.e why brighton is good for the MPharm

Yeah it wasnt bad at all! For some reason i prepared myself for a written aptitude test that wasnt happening. Got my interviews confused it seems!

I was in group 3 and you do sound very familiar! I must have seen you because I was literally sitting down eyeing everyone up before we went in for the introductory lecture :lol: Omg that would of scared me if we had to do another test, the one online was bad enough! Which other places have you applied too?

Oh yeah I was stood near the doors in the room before the introductory lecture I think you were behind me? I was looking around and my immediate thought was "you're surrounded by super smart people, you're fudged, love." :lol: Yeah, I think I read on forums for Brighton interviews in earlier years that they had to do aptitude tests! I found the online one pretty straightforward, but I was so panicked because of how much getting into Brighton means to me. I've applied to Bath, Reading (declined), Lincoln and De Montfort (Really don't want to go to DMU at all, but i applied anyway just to keep my parents happy as it's close to home haha).
Where've you applied?

Yeah I definitely saw you! And that's what I was thinking too tbh because I'm deffo not one of the smart ones :lol: I thought the online test was quite frustrating because I couldn't figure out how tackle the first calculation but hey all the panicking is over now and we both got there in the end with an offer! I really hope you get accepted into Brighton is it your firm? and I'm guessing you live in Leicester haha I also applied to Kings (decline) Kent (offer) Sussex (offer) and Portsmouth (interview)

Good to know I'm memorable! I'm not a brainbox either, more of a chatterbox. Can't even remember the first calculation if I'm honest! They just took me by surprise a bit because there weren't any practice questions. Thank God! Nooo I live in Nottingham! Just Notts uni don't accept access courses for pharmacy, so it wasn't an option for me. Yes, Brighton is my firm, no idea what my insurance is yet . I have an interview for DMU, still waiting to hear back from Bath and Lincoln. So I'm guessing by your uni choices that you're from down south?

Well you were quite nice to look at so I'm not surprised I remember your face lol! Yeah I know what you mean, I started going through loads of basic maths questions but they didn't even help :P luckily I have done work experience in a pharmacy so I kinda got the idea. Notts seems like an amazing place! but that's quite silly they don't accept an access course when it is a solid level 3 qualification, ahh well all your other unis especially Brighton are very good for pharmacy so don't sweat it., and you get to move out from home :awesome: Good luck with the interview and yeah I'm from Portsmouth

Haha that was pretty smooth. My family were having an argument whilst I was doing the aptitude test so I was trying to drown them out with my thoughts. Notts is a really nice place! But I need to flee the nest for a little while I think. They accept access courses for most subjects, apart from pharmacy, which sucks for me! Thank you, I'm gonna need the luck! What's Portsmouth like? I've never been!

Very smooth indeed Ah well just focus on you right now and forget about any distractions because you need them grades so you can become an amazing pharmacist at Brighton! Yeah it is best to get a full uni experience and just move out the house lol you won't regret it, it's what all my mates have done. I think I might commute but I'm still not totally sure. Well that's just balls but pharmacy is a really competitive degree so maybe that's why. Portsmouth is nice, I live right next to the beach so when summer comes it's always a party haha, we have a decent shopping area too in gunwharf so you should come visit!

Yeha I wouldn't mind that haha! I'm pretty sure you're not a serial killer so it should be ok

I think the Brighton interview was a little bit different to other conventional interviews. They were group interviews, we were in fours. They gave us a scenario and asked us how we would react to the scenario, and what would be the right thing to do. They told us the only wrong thing to do would be to not participate. It was very straightforward.

Hi! I don't remember off the top of my head exactly, but I remember it being pretty straightforward, didn't take me long at all. I remember having to use the molarity equation, and that's it I'm afraid.

Only advice I can give is to have paper and pen ready, I usually do things in my head but I was so high strung about getting into uni that I had to write out all my working out and check them three times over.

Good luck!
