Calculation questions

These relate to the calculations topic this month. The calculations paper for the GPhC registration assessment allows you to use a calculator but it must be one of the ones specified. Buy one of these models and get used to using it. These questions do not have MCQ options and it is really important you answer in the units specified and round to the nearest whole number unless otherwise indicated.

In the afternoon paper, there will be a need on some questions for you to do a calculation and you are not allowed a calculator for this part of the assessment. The question will be MCQ format. The first question below is in this format so do not use a calculator for it.

You should probably allow yourself three minutes per question, although these are easier than questions on the registration assessment where this type of question will be part of a longer question.
