    What are you doing to prepare for it? I've googled paramedic interview questions and its basically why do you want to become a paramedic, what's your strength and weaknesses, what is the role of a paramedic etc...

    Where else have you applied? I had the option of having an interview at Coventry on the 6th, but that's when my Worcester interview is :-)

    Well I am generally quite fit anyway. I am a long distance runner in my spare time so I think at the beginning of Jan I will start going to the gym to strengthen my upper body! What about yourself?

    I sent my application to Swansea at the beginning of Oct and still haven't heard anything. However I did ring them on Friday to check that they actually received my application and the admissions tutor said that they had and that it had been sent for consideration.

    Yeah, I do have a full driving licence. Only just! Passed my test about 3 weeks ago!

    I am a member of St John Ambulance. I have volunteered on an elderly care ward for 10 weeks once a week. And I have done a weeks work experience in a Minor Injury Unit. I am also a Waitress working in a busy hands on environment, and have also been the named first aider on site at a busy tourist attraction :-)

    Yourself?

    My work experience is with the british army, volunteering once a week on a trauma orthopedics ward for a year, a week on A&E, a day in theatre, and once a week on A&E so far but im hoping to do some more...
    oh and iv worked in a busy clothes shop and now have a new job in town too

    hopefully thats enough!

    By the way people! Do not worry about the fintness test! You only have to score something around 7 in a beep test and that is where you start kind of a fast jog.

    They are very basic and just to prove you can move and lift the bed with a casualty!


    Good luck everyone!

    The bleep test should be relatively easy if you are fit.
