    Hey
    I have the same problem.
    Apparently some uni's ask about the structure of some drugs and test you knowledge of recent changes to the pharmaceutical industry. It's only word of mouth but might help.

    Chemistry test? OMG I just thought it was simple maths and they might ask things about PS in the interview and then the general "What are you learning in your A levels and how it relates?"

    I've heard it's only 6 questions... and it's easy... IDK still worried though. Would u say that the interview is more like a chat or really formal?

    its so annoying that there isnt really any guidance anywhere about it. I take a level maths so i don't think i'll struggle but would still be nice to know. is it a 1-2-1 interview or stations?

    Hey, just wondering how your interview went and if you could remember any specific questions. I've got my interview soon and am quite nervous especially about the maths questions.
    Ps does the interviewer ask you the maths questions or was it like a test situation.

    You sit the test in a little room with a few other people about 15 minutes before your interview. It's about 5 or 6 questions of basic percentages and it's nothing to stress out about.
    The interview itself is pretty relaxed and you're just asked the general sort of questions about yourself and what you know about the role of a pharmacist.
    The interviewers aren't there to trip you up and mine helped me out if I wasn't too sure how to answer a question, or if I didn't have an answer.

    Good luck!
