Pharmacy Interview (Aston University)

I have an interview at Aston University for pharmacy in less than 2 weeks, and I am not sure, how to prepare for it, and i dont know what kind of questions they are going to ask. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips and advice.
Hey! What they do is theyll send you a pretask 5 days before your interview and you complete it and submit it before your interview day. In the interview theyll ask you about your responses to the pretask. No other questions! Good luck :smile:

No lol. Im an applicant from this years cohort, i had my interview a few weeks ago. The pretask is basically 2 scenarios, you get two proposals and you have to say whether you agree or diagree with them and why. I think the word limit was like 500 words.
