    Not true. Swansea didn't tell us what to expect. Certainly the first lot as we were all in for a surprise.
    Have to agree with this. UWE did not tell us what to expect, and one Uni - which shall not be named didn't even tell me where the interview was! Apparently it was the first 'task'. :eek:

    No fitness test at St Georges, it's multi mini interviews there, they should send you an email with a link to lots of information about it. Good luck!

    im sorry to hear that but look at the positives - they invited you to interview (only about 300 out of overa thousand were invited)- so they must think you are suitable, and now you know what needs worked on for future use- hopefully this experience has not disheartened you but will spur you on.
    My mate who came over with me for his interview the following day failed his fitness test just 30 secs from the end- they told him to stop and he thought that was the test over but alas that was not the case (and he would be considered quite a fit indavidual)

    they should send out an email with the details- no fitness test but they have a MMI instead of the traditional panel interview. but that will all be explained in the email.
    If you dont mind me asking when is your interview for?
    just mines is tomorrow and if I dont completely muck it up im just trying to gauge how long ill end up having to play the waiting game

    Make sure if you have travel restrictions tell them before hand. Or make sure you get an anytime return... The interview is like 3 stations and then a 1:1 interview.

    Its a good day, good luck they are really nice. The uni is lovely and if it wasn't a DipHe it would be my first choice!

    Its really annoying isn't it because you cant just go on if you feel able to..when he said right im going to have to stop you i was like nooo :-( i really wanted to go there! Do you know how many failed in your group? Im not sure how many did in mine because i was 2nd to do it...

    30 secs from the end would be so annoying! i dont know how long i had left but the guy said even if theres only a few seconds left if it goes over you fail - theres no exceptions! Its irritating because the best candidates might be the most nervous and could have a higher heart rate because of that! Coventry were much more understanding, they said if you do a good interview it wont matter!
