    Can't remember where I wrote this earlier but one I went to and all public sector health care jobs I've had are competency based, so it's good when answering questions to use examples of things you've done or use knowledge you have and show you know what you're talking about. Also coming across as confident and in control is good as it's a big part of the job. Be organised and try and get some practice in maybe thinking about what they may ask etc.
    Hope that helps x

    In terms of how relaxed they are I'm not 100% but she didn't even apply for nursing, did for midwifery but got offered it instead x

    This sounds really good! Joining the army is something I've considered for after I graduate but I didn't know you could train on the job. I definitely think if I don't have any luck during this current UCAS cycle I'll look into it
    the army does look at your UCAS points, however they mainly look at your fitness and the type of person you are. UCAS points just make you look good in the army. as long as you have 270 minimum then you are all set. but its fitness, fitness, fitness to them!!
    I'm sure you'll do great. stay positive and don't give up just because of some paperwork - do as much volunteering as possible and gain points or if you are 16-18 years old apply to NCS, you gain experience, points and first aid. I done it and it was great.

    kind regards

I'm also looking at volunteering, could anyone recommend something to me?

    I sent my application off on the day UCAS opened. I have have had acknowledgements back from the 2 that I applied to (Bournemouth and Southampton) but nothing else. It already feels like I have been waiting ages!

    I'm applying for mh too. You'd probably find volunteer stuff thr the best with places like mind, rethink or more specific ones like b-eat. Or in a hospital/ day centre setting possible doing activities with people.
    I'm not sure how it works where you are but I'm on the hospital bank which is great experience cos you can ask to be placed in mh area.

    I've finished my UCAS application but not yet submitted it. I've emailed my PS to my careers adviser who gave me good comments and feedback, I amended it accordingly and sent it back Tuesday hoping that I could hear back soon and send it off before half term.. no response, now it's half term >.<

    When half term is over and I get a response from him, I can then send my application into UCAS around 3rd November. Does it go straight to UCAS? because my tutor needs to attach a reference so I am unsure how this works. Can anyone let me know about this process? it wasn't covered in our UCAS sessions in college.

    Your tutor needs to add the reference before you can send it, it won't let you send it without one unless you tick to not have one (and don't do that!!)

    That's odd, I have the option to pay come up already and I can go through that stage as I had a curious look. I never ticked not having a reference since I have applied through college. So it looks like I can send it off so it either goes to UCAS or to the college somehow?

    It's been a few years since I did it at college so it might be different. But I know atm my referee has to attach it before I send it.
    Might just be better to wait till you got back to college, got ages after all!

    If you're applying through school/college I think this is how it works...
    After you click pay/send, your application is sent to your referee who then has to approve it and add their reference bit, you'll just get to see this page, (in the photo). After that's happened, it's sent to your coordinator who then approves it and can send it off

    Omg, how'd it go, you done it already.! What was the interview process like ? Do they do group interview, was it hard? Greenwich is one of my choices. Please help and thanks. Hope you get an offer.
