    I had my MMI and tests on the 26th February also and still yet to hear anything. Im trying to think positive - No news is good news! Such a anxious wait though. Good Luck
    I had my MMI on the 26th Fed too and they got back to me within a week! They did say between 1-3 weeks so I'd probably ring them if they're taking awhile because emails sometimes get left unanswered! Good Luck!!

    From what I can remember they have some in the South East (South Maudsley Trust, Lewisham Community), some in Central (Guys Hospital, Kings, St Thomas') and they also cover North London but can't remember which ones! I remember them saying you can choose where in the country to do your electives, so a lot of students choose their home towns so that they can move back home with their parents ;-)

    Hi, thank you so much for getting back to me, honestly I was so confused, because I kept on looking online and too many things appeared at once, I feel stressed as exams are just around the corner . I have my mmi and selection day on the 27th April 2015, I have 4 weeks to revise and I also have additional exams. I feel scared because I think there is a higher chance that I will be rejected as I think my mmi and selection day is the last one and I have to make a decision by 8th May. have you sorted out your accommodation?:bawling:

    Hello, I am applying for the Post Graduate Diploma in Mental Health Nursing, and I plan to live at home and commute if I am successful. I've just found out today that I passed the numeracy and literacy tests and I have been invited for an MMI on the 22nd April! Sooo nervous but also very excited
    Good luck with your MMI, I'm sure you'll be fine!

    Thanks
    Yes, they give out calculators when you register. Have you used snap? I'd recommend practising on that to give you an idea of questions. Good luck!

    I've not experienced that problem. Perhaps try using a different browser? I used Chrome and it worked fine for me, I am all registered.

    Hi
    I had my literacy & numeracy test for kings yesterday. I must admit it was harder than I thought it would be. There were some unexpected questions that the snap website did not even have for the numeracy test. I know it cos I practiced a lot. Overall you would find 20 mins for the numeracy is too long, and 20 mins for literacy is too short. So watch out!
    Hi I haven't applied for this but I'm just wondering why you need to pass a maths test for nursing. What type of questions come up but are there related in the context of nursing?

    Of course you will need to have maths skills for nursing. For example for medication purposes, and for other types of duties. For an idea of the type of questions that come up please check Snap.

    I can't say too much about the abroad thing because I don't know myself, but as for accommodation I've applied just now haha. Put Wolfson House as my first but I might change it.
