Apart from an interview are there any additional tests needed to be passed before getting a place in the uni?

No I think it’s just an interview and some unis don’t even require an interview

There are interviews for most unis but no tests. You can practice interview questions just search pharmacy interview questions online

Fro what I've read on here, some universities do do interviews, and ask why pharmacy?, why uni of X?, and I think some do some basics tests, like to check your maths, but nothing difficult.
With Covid-19, I think many were doing zoom interviews. It is probably more likely the Russell Group universities that will want to interview you from what I've read on here.

Best to scroll through the 2021 applicants thread to see what they all say.

Does anyone know what specific questions the unis can ask? The only ones I have in mind are just why pharmacy and questions asking about skills.

Thank you so much!
I’m studying A-Level biology, chemistry and religious studies. I’ve had work experience in a local nursery for a week and two weeks work experience in a pharmacy (which they then offered me a part-time job).
My predicted grades are ABB which I don’t think I really good for pharmacy :-/
In my GCSEs I achieved all 8s and 9s with the exception of one grade 7.
I’m considering applying to Nottingham, UCL, Birmingham and Manchester.

hi I'm doing Biology, Chemistry & Maths. My predicted grades weren't good I got BBB but I think I can get AAA in my A levels. Do you think it's a waste of a time if I apply to UCL, KINGS COLLEGE, and BIRMINGHAM? btw the only work experience I have is volunteering at a hospital and I'm trying to get work in a pharmacy but I'm really struggling so if anyone knows any please let me know
