    The conversions I had on my test were along the lines of millilitres to litres or millimeters to centimeters and things like that, stuff that everybody knows. Are they the ones you're asking about? You literally get no help with it, just the questions and thats it. No hints, its definitely GCSE standard and quite a few of the questions are easy enough to do in your head. Have you done some practise papers? Quite a few uni's have practise nursing entrance maths tests on their websites.
    Thank you, it's just that the other interviews I have been to have provided the values for you on the front of the paper

    I know people who are doing nursing at the moment and I thinks its

    14 weeks theory
    3 weeks christmas
    9 weeks placement
    then 4/5 weeks theory
    then easter for two weeks
    then 9 weeks placements
    BUT its only 1st year thats like that apparently, from 2nd year onwards the holidays are completely different.

    I ve heard its at most monday to thursday 9 to 4/5 but less some weeks

    Well done to you too! Well Edge Hill is my first choice but have to wait until April for a decision from them but if it's a no, I'll be accepting Uclan. It's just Edge Hill is easier for me to get to but it's just a waiting game at the minute xx

    I guess that depends on where you live as parking permits only get given to people who live at least quite far away and if you re happy living with other students i guess?

    Thanks!
    Yeah I don't mind living with other students, for me it would be whether I could afford to live in and keep my car going or not 🙈
    I live about 45 minutes away from The university, so I'm guessing that's not far enough for the permit?

    But yeah if you re less than an hour away by bus or train then unless you ve got kids they wont let you have one.
    Accommodation is between 3500 and 4 k a year so keeping a car would probably be a struggle if you lived on campus.

    I m planning on taking the buses to placements since I could claim all the costs back apparently
