    hey people i got a question for you
    ive read through this thread and have realised that people who do not have maths at AS or Alevel are being called up for an interview to do that test...is this true?
    has anyone who is currently doing maths got called up for an interview yet?

    i do maths and got called up, and in terms of the interview they said that before that had interviews in morning followed by tour in afternoon, but that meant less interviews so they said that this year they wanted more interviews so they split them up. I think every1 does get interviews hence why they split it up like this now.
    Well i was fortunate enough to have 2 interviewers who treated it as a nice informal chat ^^ so made me relax but we still talked about work exp personal statement etc. etc.

    Qs Why kings
    why pharmacy
    what can you offer besides academic achievements?
    did you go for work exp?
    if so when where and what aspects do you think make a good pharmacist?
    what makes you gd at team work?
    do you do any extra curricular act?
    why do some patients not take the drugs and what are the consequences?
    How could you ensure/persuade that patients take their course of antibiotics etc.

    stuff like that

    wow easy for some.. i had a nasty grilling session by one interviewer - he was a professor, and he was so uncomfortable to talk to lol. he didnt smile or anything, and you know how they are meant to encourage you to talk on, even if its not relevant - this one just shut me out as soon as it was apparent i wasn't directly answering his question.

    all i can say is meeaniiee.

    ty, the maths and english test was ok, maths is all about ratios so learn that well english was alright just make sure you read up and know how to define words in a certain amount of words. Also 2 or 3 easy comprehension qs. Good luck the 2 who interviewed me were realyl nice ppl!!!
