Pharmacy applicants

You may need to complete an interview and aptitude test

This page relates to Pharmacy applicants who have received notification on UCAS Track of an invitation to attend an Applicant Day. All formal offers for this programme are subject to the successful completion of an interview and an aptitude test. 

Time, dates and important deadlines

If you have been invited to one of our assessment days please remember to confirm or decline your attendance through UCAS Track (where you can also request an alternative date if necessary) no later than seven days before your interview.

Please note: Due to the volume of applications we receive, places are strictly limited and, whenever possible, we would urge you to make every effort to attend on your appointed date. 

If you do not respond by the given deadline then you will not be able to complete the assessment, as your place will be allocated to another candidate. 

If you do not request an alternative date by the deadline, you will not be offered an alternative date as we will consider this evidence that you wish to withdraw your application from the Pharmacy programme at Liverpool John Moores University.
