        I know about 10 people who have had a bath interview and it's apparently very relaxed and more like a chat to make sure you're not some kind of psycho, rather than a formal interview. They basically ask "why bath?" and "why pharmacy?" and probably a couple of things about your personal statement.

            Try looking through the uni prospectus and the course and pick out things that interest you about the course and ask about it. Just off the top of my head for example, if they say that students undertake placements in the 3rd year or something, you could ask if the university provides any help with getting the placements or providing contacts for placements for you. Just anything really- i'm sure most people couldn't care less what the answer to the question is but it's just nice to seem enthusiastic

            Bath probably has the least formal interview out of all the unis so you should be ok. about 80% of one my friend's interview was mostly him asking the interviewer questions hehe.
            Good luck!

                  It's nearly 5 years since I had my interviews at uni, but this might still help you.


                  Nottingham interview asked about what I had learned in Biology & Chemistry.
                  They asked me if I knew how insulin was produced, if I knew about genetics and if I'd covered aspirin in chemistry.

                  Manchester asked me how many different dosage forms I could name (different ways to give medicines) e.g. tablets, liquids, injections.

                  I think I was asked if I could name 5 drugs I could buy from a pharmacy too and what they were for.
