    If you get an interview, they should specify if you need to do any tests on the day. For one of mine, I didn't know I had to do one until they sent a detailed email. But for the others, they haven't mentioned anything about it. I'm not entirely sure if every uni does tests :/

    Um... a fitness test?? What?? I heard they might do some sort of fitness evaluation at the start of the course but not beforehand, I don't think. Where did you hear that?

    Good luck with your application
    Thanks for that 😊 We are having meeting at college tomorrow which is to give everyone tips on numeracy and literacy tests as some of the nurse applicants failed the test and we're just sent home without an interview. Regarding the fitness test, I'm sure I read it somewhere ... Could just be occupational health assessment ?? X

    Not all of them do Maths and English tests. They should email you to tell you if you have them, if in doubt then ask then. Never heard anything about fitness tests.

    Can I just check if you have to take a numeracy and literacy test at all physiotherapy interviews? I'm sure I read that you do and I know those applying for nursing do ... But can't find any reference to it on the university websites?? Also I'm sure there is a fitness test too? Cheers in advance X
    I had about 8 interviews over 2 years and only one of those involved a literacy and numeracy test- many unis do them just for people who's first language isn't english so the likelihood is your interview won't involve one. The fitness you mention is fitness to practice, which is most likely just you confirming that you have no medical conditions that could affect your practice etc and then passing an occupational health disclosure which the uni will organise. Hope that helps!

    Did it not give you a bit of info on UCAS I got a rejection from them yesterday, and it said 'Insufficient evidence of relevant work experience or weak account of work experience in your personal statement.' which hasn't really given me much hope for other unis I've applied for but I don't know whether this means I don't have enough work experience or I didn't write about it well in my personal statement
    Yeah I said earlier in the thread (I don't blame you for not looking through the whole thing I can never be arsed), it said on UCAS 'your personal statement showed insufficient knowledge of the profession' or something along those lines.

    Didn't give me much hope either!

    Hi! my application was sent off a month ago and I applied to Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, Nottingham & Southampton. I still haven't heard back from any universities! :/it's super frustrating, has anyone else had heard back from these unis?
    Hi. I sent mine of in the middle of October and applied to Birmingham, Nottingham and Southampton too. Have you got the 'we've received your application...' email? That should come pretty quick.
    But in terms of invitations to interviews, I just got one from Birmingham today, so that took about 2 months, Nottingham still haven't replied and I got one from Southampton after a month or so.
    Don't worry too much, I'm sure you'll hear back soon!

    Wooh a physio thread! I'm happy i'm not the only one who's waiting a lifetime for replies, as I sent my application away about a month ago now, and i've only had 1 reply which was an interview for Brunel! I've also applied to Birmingham, KCL, Oxford Brookes and Northumbria. 😊 A friend of mine told me that some universities wait until the UCAS deadline to start dishing out interviews, can anyone confirm or deny this?

    Hey
    I've applied to Northumbria, Cumbria, Worcester, Sheffiled Hallam and York st John. Sent it off two weeks ago and got all the 'we've seen your application' emails but nothing since. I'm from the channel islands so I'm applying as self funded/not nhs funded, so I'm not sure if this changes my interview process or anything but fingers crossed I'll get some interviews soon!

    As travelling is an issue for me (getting from channel islands up north isn't easy) do you think I could request a different interview date if necessary? I'm just a bit worried about the notice they give people- my friend had a week's notice but it was for a music degree so I dont know if physiotherapy has a longer period of notice.

    Hi everyone,

    I've applied to Nottingham, Sheffield Hallam, Brighton, Huddersfield and Hertfordshire. And so far have got an interview with Sheffield, Brighton and Hertfordshire next January. I've only been told by Hertfordshire that I will need to have a literacy and numeracy test before the interview. Does anyone know or had the interview to tell me the difficulty of both the tests and what kind of questions are on the maths e.g. fractions or percentages etc. as although I passed my maths at GCSE, I still find maths quite hard.

    Thanks

    Hey everyone,

    I'm also currently on an access course and glad to read I'm not the only one! Most people on my course want to do nursing.
    I'm waiting to hear back from my choices but I only sent my UCAS off last week so I doubt I'll hear back until after Christmas now.
    I've applied to MMU, Leeds Beckett, Salford, Sheffield Hallam and Keele.
    Fingers crossed!!

    Hi guys,
    I was in your position last year and the waiting is awful, checking your emails every 5 mins, stressing over your results etc! I felt like I received rejection after rejection but try not to let it get you down too much, every uni looks for something different and I'm now in my first year doing physio! Don't forget, you only need one offer so keep your chins up, you'll get there! You may not hear anything over the Christmas period so try to enjoy the break and relax Good luck everyone!
