    Oh no it's 45 weeks sorry, I checked again! I must've been confused with accommodation contract lengths. Yup, I did they're super helpful and quick to reply so if you ever need to I would highly recommend asking them on there.

    Hi everyone. I have just come across this post. I did my tests on 18th March and I am on my way to attend my interview now. Like everyone else the timing for the literacy was rubbish. I just put the basic answers on all of them then went back to write more things with whatever little time was left. That way every had an answer but my thumb hurt afterwards because I wrote like mad. I am applying for PG dip Adult Nursing and a bit nervous. I have worked in hospitals off and on for coming on 7 years now but I have had a mad week and no time to prepare so wish me luck!

    Hi everyone; I have an offer for adult nursing for September 2015 at Kings. I was wondering where everyone was applying for accommodation, as I want to know roughly where the nurses all go?

    Hello Sophie, I wrote had my MMI on Wednesday the 15th and I got a conditional offer last night at 19.38. I am applying for PGdip Adult Nursing and have to complete the Apel form before it becomes an unconditional offer. We were however advised that it could take up to 10 days before we hear back.

    Hi Sophie,

    I met you on the 1st i think? I was the ed sheeran lookalike.
    I think no news is good news! I have heard they process rejections fairly rapidly after the MMI if you fail, within 3 days or something!
    Fingers crossed!

    Hey, I also have an Adult Nursing offer. I put my top 5 as; Stamford street, Julian markham, moonraker, great Dover and ewen Henderson. I based my choices mostly on which were close to waterloo campus, because that's the main one for nursing I think?

    I know there's another one planned for May
    I did my numeracy/literacy assessment last week, and they mentioned that the MMI would be some time mid May for the people who passed !

    Hello,

    I have received a conditional offer for PGdip adult nursing, i've completed the APEL form and I am waiting to hear back. I will be living on the outskirts of north west London (due to money constraints) and will be commuting in. I am concerned about wether I will actually be able to make it into London on time for early shift placements, especially if they are in south/east London. I know this is all along way off but does anyone know if you can request to have your placements within a reasonable commuting distance from your accommodation to avoid logistical travel/time problems?

    Also, does anyone of any additional funding that might be able to help with more central accommodation?

    Thanks, Helen
