    300 Tariff points is just that, BBB/ABC is fine. UNLESS they specify they want a B in something then yeah your good

    Guys trust me there is no need to worry, I didn't hear from them till march, had all of my other offers as well. Kings are just weird, they always take their time with offers.

    I knew of one person on TSR who got interviewed before christmas, but they seems to have been predicted AAA so maybe thats why.

    hey guys, had my kings interview today!
    surprisingly, the interview went well BUT i found the test afterwards really hard - completely flopped the maths part.
    As for the english bit, it was okay (once you get over the title which was "to err is human, to learn divine", whatever the hell that means).

    the interview was not how i expected it to be - none of the usual "why pharmacy" or "why kings" or even the "name something in the media recently...".
    it was all based on my personal statement.

    the hardest question i got asked was "how do you see art and science fusing?". i cant quite remember my answer.

    i also had to give them examples to demonstrate when i have worked in a team, and when i have been working under pressure. then they asked me alot of questions about the examples i had given (so make sure you dont lie!).

    i also got asked about my work experience quite a bit.

    anyone else had their kings interview today?

    Lol! it wasnt that bad!

    the maths questions werent c1/c2 as far as i remember. they were just conversions and fractions and stuff.

    dont worry tho, my maths is terrible so i thats why i found it hard. for the average student - you'll be ok!

    i know what you mean about kings. it felt like they were taking ages to reply, but trust me, when you get an interview it's like "OMG! i dont have any time to prepare!"

    Good luck tho, im sure you'll get an interview soon!

    they asked me about things i had mentioned on my PS (like i did mentoring, work experience etc.). they just ask you what you did (eg. what did your W.E. involve?), and what you learned about yourself from doing it etc. its really not difficult (unless you're lying - coz then you're bound to contradict yourself somehow!).

    about the work experience - they asked me what kind of work i did, what i learned from doing it and then some extra questions like:
    what is the most important quality a pharmacist must have?
    how can pharmacists help people who are refusing to take their medicines?
    how can pharmacists help people who cannot come to terms with their diagnosis etc.
    why are pharmacists so important in society?

    there were 2 people interviewing - 1 asks questions and the other just writes stuff down. right at the end, the 1 who was asking questiond turned to the other 1, and HE asked me the weird science nd art queston. i dont do art at A level, but i did it for GCSE (and i told him i was quite creative) so i think thats why he asked.

    for working in a team example - i gave the example of when i went on a residential trip and i was part of team doing chores and stuff.

    for working under pressure - just said in general of when i have deadlines for coursework and its exam time, i have to work under pressure. and then i said how i deal with stress. i would advise you to have some examples ready before any interview in case these kind of questions come up.

    also some questions came up about the different types of medicine available ( i talked about GSL, P and POM medicines).

    they also asked about what is needed to make a team work (or something like that anyway, i cant remember exactly).

    hope that helps!
