    Hi everyone

    I need some help, I applied for a job vacancy with the NHS for “Maternity Support Worker” I was lucky enough to get an interview!!! I am so excited but I have to sit a numeracy and literacy test and I am worried as maths has never been my strong point!

    I really want to revise for these tests as I really want this job, does any know or any websites I can go to revise and take practise test, to see how bad I am lol

    By the way has anyone sat any of these assessment tests for the NHS?? If so can you tell me where they hard or easy?

    Thanks in advance

    Good book:
    http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/book/9780749451622/
    £6.19 incl delivery.
    As far as I can remember the entry test for nursing is a mix of level 1 & level 2 numeracy that concentrates on fractions, decimals and % with some metric measures and money calculations.

    The BBC Skillswise site would be good for revision.

    For a support worker they may use the national numeracy tests (you could ask someone in personnel). Practice tests here:

    I went for a Hca job today and failed at the first hurdle (numeracy and literacy test). I am very disheartened about this being I have 3 years hospital experience and nvq 2 and 3. I have recently moved to Essex from east Sussex where I currently have work in the hospital down that way, but travelling on the train for 2 and a half hours each way every weekend is getting a bit much. I suppose all I can do is keep applying and trying to get through the test. I'm not good and maths so that was my down fall. When I first got into the nhs they didn't have these tests. Crazy I got all the experience that is required but have this obstacle in the way.

    Hi Loulipsylou, sorry to hear that you did not make the test. I have to take the numeracy and literacy test tomorrow cos I had applied to work for the NHS. Did you do the test online through the use of a computer or you hand wrote it?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a interview with NHS for a drug worker and it says I need to do a numeracy and literacy test, my numeracy is not good at all, I'm just brushing up on my skills but wondered if anyone knew if the numeracy test was online and if you are able to use a calculator?

    Replies greatly appreciated :-)

    Hi I have been invited to an assessment day for 'Ambulance care Assistant' in a weeks time.
    Application has been quick so far.
    I'm really worried about the Maths and English tests...
    They know from my application that I didn't gain a Maths GCSE so should I be too worried if I don't pass that part?
    I am okay at spelling not great.
    I'm more of a practical, fitness person.
    Could anyone enlighten me on how the maths test goes? E.g. is it on a computer? what are the questions like?
    Any help would be great.

    Thank you.

    Hi everyone.

    I have attended NHS numeracy and literacy test for MLT. It comprises basis paper test with time scale. At the same time, we performed IT test- typing speed test on computer. This seems easy but practice on keyboard skills makes you perform better.

    I am about to get an another interview tomorrow for CTA, hope things will go fine. All the best for u guys.
