I've been invited to an interview at Cardiff Uni to study pharmacy and I was just wondering what the interview process includes.
I heard from some of my classmates that in their interview at Swansea that one of the elements of the interview was to have a group discussion with all the interviewees on a particular topic, does anyone know if Cardiff do this?

-Do I need to bring anything with me such as copies of my GCSE certificates?

-Any difficult questions that you were asked during your pharmacy interview?

-In my invitation email it said that I would need to sit a numeracy test, is it difficult? Any A-Level Chemistry based calculations or is it just general maths?
Thank you for your help.

Hey - sorry you haven't had any responses so far. I'm just going to pop this in the Cardiff forum for you. Hopefully someone will see this there and be able to help

I have mine tomorrow as well! I'm also very nervous because Cardiff is my first choice university, but the important thing to remember is that the interviewer isn't there to catch you out, they're just there to learn more about you and your passion for pharmacy and the university! Good luck to you also, I'm sure you'll do exceptional!

Haha, Cardiff is my first choice as well!! It's my first interview so I don't know what to expect and that makes me very nervous. Im sure you'll do a fantastic job . I've heard that the maths shouldn't be very difficult as maths A-level isn't compulsory for those looking to study Pharmacy. I guess we just have to be ourselves and try our best.

Best of Luck .

I didn’t have many questions but that was because one topic just led to another, but the questions I remember is “why Cardiff?” & “what are you learning in school currently that’s relevant to pharmacy”
Maths test was simple but since I do a level maths I just over complicated it but I was told by a postgraduate student that the test is only to see if you’d need extra help with maths so I wasn’t too worried about it.

Hello, congratulations. I've got an interview soon also and am pretty nervous especially for the maths section. Does the interviewer ask you the maths questions directly or is it completed separately from the interview.

It’s Separate from the interview you’ll either have it before or after your interview, it’s a question paper so You’re not asked the questions directly and it’s very simple .. if you do a level maths do not over complicate it like I did haha, although the test is to see if you’d need any mathematical help whilst being on the course as I was told by a postgraduate student so there’s no need to worry about it, I didn’t do well in it because I was over complicating things but I still got an offer! Good luck!
