I have been told that it will be a group interview but I dont know what sort of questions they may ask. Was the questions academic and application questions or scenario based. If anyone remembers the questions they were asked please help me out!

Questions are deliberately kept a secret, and other students sharing this information would put them at a disadvantage to you. It's against TSR's rules to ask for this information and interviewees are asked not to share questions.

It would be prudent to prepare for all of the types of questions you have mentioned. At the very least I would suggest having an answer prepared to all of these:

- Why do you want to study the course
- Why do you want to study at Hertfordshire
- A comment on any work experience you may have (what you liked about it? How it confirmed your decision to pick this course)
- An ethics based question

why pharmacy?
any drugs and what you know about them
recent drug discovery
stereoisomers- should they be used in medicine?
what role do pharmacists have in the community
lifestyle advice
is it fair that pharmacy students should live according to the code of conduct

It was a group interview and they asked slightly different questions to other groups so all the questions are not exactly the same but these were the questions I got asked
my interview in January 2018
Thankyou so much for your help man. Just one last thing, were there any questions on chemistry thrown around, which would require you to revise your organic chemistry? also did they ask any questions directed from your personal statement? Thanks again for taking your time to help though its much appreciated

no problem, I would have loved for someone to do this for me. Yes revise stereoisomers and how it is used in medicine like advantages/disadvantages and no they didn't pick anything out from personal statements. Not going to lie, the interview was pretty formal and not as friendly as my other interviews so make sure you're professional

No they ask a question and anyone can answer but the interviewers wait until everyone has answered

Aha that's alright. Yeah they probably will because ethics came up a lot on other interviews so maybe do some practise ethics questions

I have an interview at Hertfordshire the last week of November 2019, for pharmacy.
I was wondering if anyone knows if the questions are the same as last year?
Or if anyone knows what type of questions they ask in the interview?

Thank You

Hey wafa_17!

It might be worth taking a look at some info I have put together in a post on this thread. Unfortunately we are limited on how much interview info we can spread!

Hope that helps and best of luck in your interview!

the interview was really easy, it was a group interview.
The questions were along the lines of these
They just asked what area of pharmacy you want to go into?
Any drugs you've heard of in the news?
Why you want to study pharmacy?
What skills a pharmacist should have?
There may have been more questions but I can't remember all of them, sorry.


Overall it wasn't that bad, they make sure that everyone in group has to answer.
I got my offer a few days later for 120 ucas points (BBB)
