Oriel SJT / Numeracy Pharmacy 2024

I know the exam booking opens in the end of July but I have a question to people who've sat the exam before.
How long before my exam should I start preparing? How much revision should I do (e.g. hours per day)? Before I got into pharmacy I did the UCAT for medicine entry and I used to revise for like 4-6 hours a day for 6 weeks.

Are the SJT and numeracy exam on the same day? Do you get a break in-between? Also, what's the best date to book the exam for? I know for this year you can do it any day from September 19th to October 2nd. Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.

Hi, I sat the exam last year and I can't really advise you on how much you want to revise because there's not a lot of resources anyway but hope this thread https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=7377751 helpsBoth the SJT and numeracy will be on the same exam, you just have different sections. You don't get break in between, but in my experience I have lots of time left. Best date is really depending on your schedule, for us our best date is the earliest as possible so it wouldn't meddle when our semester starts, which also means you kind of have to book as soon as the booking for exam opens (31st july) as it might be competitive especially if you aim to take those exams in central london (in my experience). But otherwise it doesn't really matter when you want to take your exam, as long as it is the most convenient for you.
