Hi there. What happens on the day is you have a maths test which is truly very basic multiplication and division and you get 15 minutes for it (for example one of the questions was: A person pays 29.25 each moth for their medication, how much would the person pay for 12 months) There are only six questions on the maths test.

As for the interview, just be confident and be natural. I was asked why pharmacy, why cardiff. Make sure to give well developed answers and my interviewer asked me questions based on my answers. For example I said I was very interested in the industrial sector of pharmacy and then my interview asked whether I had any work experience in that sector and went on from that point.

Overall the interview was fairly relaxed and began to feel like a very in depth chat.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask anything else

For the maths questions, my mental maths isn't good with the time pressure, if u left the answer as e.g 190*8 and mentioned that that was the answer (and assuming that is correct when solved) would you lose marks anyway?

Yes, assume that you would lose marks. This is because you haven't actually answered the question. Leaving the answer as '190*8' rather than '1520' does not show the examiner that you can get to the correct answer. It only shows that you know what the process is.
