Hi,
I have my pharmacy interview at Bath on Saturday and only recieved the email for it today . I'm very nervous as i have such little time to prepare and i've never done a pharmaceutical calculations and situational judgement test. Can any one help me out and let me know how many questions these tests include and how long each one is? Any specific questions anyone can remember from doing such tests for a pharmacy interview? Any help is much appreciated.

I did my interview back in December I believe (or maybe January). For the pharmaceutical calculations, they give you 10 minutes to answer 2 questions. It's without a calculator, so make sure you are able to multiply and divide without one. I can't exactly remember the questions I'm afraid.
The situational judgement part is when you sit in a small room with a lecturer, they give you a scenario and you tell them what you would do, and explain why.

I found it a bit stressing as it was my first interview, but they were all very nice (not scary).

Just 1 scenario
do they expect you to have an answer straight away or do you get time to think about it, maybe write something down before you answer??

Well it would be fine to ponder on a few ideas for about 10 seconds maybe, but ideally you would be able to think of something relatively quickly. After all, it's in a conversation like format.

I did my interview in November and have got an offer!! For the situational judgment section they give you 5 minutes to think about your answer and write down notes on a piece of paper, and then you talk about your answer for 3 minutes and they have a checklist of things they expect you to say so honestly go for the answers you would expect they want to hear. I would recommend actually writing down notes because they take the paper in from you presumably to look at when considering you. For the 'panel' interview it was an 8 minute conversation with one person and it does just feel like a chat - they just ask the basic questions like why Bath? What are the values of a pharmacist? stuff like that. For the maths part there's two questions and i think they use the same ones every time ngl. The first question is easy, second one needs a bit more thinking but again you've got 8 minutes so it's enough time. Good luck with your interview, you'll be fine I promise just stay relaxed.
