What are pharmacy interviews like?

I am going to be applying for pharmacy in year 13, and I just wanted to know what the interviews are like? Are they as harsh as med-school interviewers? What sort of questions do they ask in the interviews?

Usually .....
The obvious stuff like 'Why Pharmacy' (Ie. and not Pharmacology, or another Healthcare related degree)
Your understanding of what a Pharmacist does.
Pharmacy's role in the NHS - and how its changing.
A simple maths test like calculating a dosage.
A question about organic chemistry (A level standard)
A scenario - 'what would you do if' - usually on confidentiality or ethical considerations.

Useful resources here -

It certainly isnt as tough as a Medicine interview - its more like an informal chat with structured questions.
