I have been invited to interview next week for pharmacy too. I’m so nervous and I have no idea how the mini multiple interview will be, how to prepare specially for maths, English, Biology and chemistry questions. I really hope to get brife idea just before the interview

Based on what they said:

Maths Questions are basically conversions: L to cL to mL.
Chemistry Questions: Your given a structural formula of an organic molecule and you have to identify different functional groups.
Biology Questions (ones I'm most concerned about): You may be given diagrams of the heart or digestive system and your job would be label them. I'm dreading the biology questions tbh.

Oh thanks for your reply. What was your maths, biology and chemistry questions? And was it like group interview or individual! And how long did it take to get an offer, if you did?

Hey, how did your interview go? I also have an interview there soon. What type of questions can I expect? Were the maths, chemistry, and biology tests hard?
it would be really helpful if you could answer back soon, please.

it was a MMI but the questions were on computers. All the questions were relatively easy, you just need to know about ml to l etc
nothing serious really.

Thank you. Its just I haven't really done much maths since school, so I was little worried. but is that what all the maths questions are based on, converting between units? or do they aks other questions too.
