I've recently been invited to an interview for the pharmacy course at Cardiff University and was wondering if anyone has any advice? I would be grateful for any tips . Also does anyone know if I need to bring anything with me such as pen, paper, calculator etc?

I thought there was a maths test as part of the interview however I might be mistaken, I know some universities do it. My interview is on Wednesday too, good luck!!

I'm probably too late to help anyone this year but in case it helps others next year, my Cardiff interview was so lovely! Such nice members of staff who seem to genuinely want you to do well. I wasn't asked any sort of calculation questions, or A-level specific questions. The interviewer said "we already have your predicted grades so we know you can do all that stuff". The interview took place in a staff member's office with just me and him and he was so friendly! Really just asked the basic questions "why do you want to study pharmacy" and "why do you think you'd make a good pharmacist". Sometimes even prompted me if it seemed like i was maybe going on a tangent or not answering the question properly which i really appreciated. He seemed really interested in any experience i had, and asked me to comment on some of my experiences i had noted in my personal statement, but the whole thing was very chilled out and the next evening i got my offer!
