    Oh no!! That's awful, I'm sure U did fine that's such a long time to wait!! im surprised he didn't want to go home? I've no idea how long I was in there for, they said we'd find out in 1-2 weeks, im so nervous about hearing :/
    I got the impression he didn't speak to a lot of people in his day to day life so he was probably just a bit happy to be out. He's smart though, I'll be all up in his game come the group work, it's always handy to have an engineer on the team I was surprisingly emotional once I got home, possibly because my blood sugar was like 1, I checked my email and there was a message from UCAS there. I started freaking out, thinking I screwed it all up, or I was in, I was very confused, I checked it out with great trepidation, it was an interview day for LSBU Great news but not the best it could have been. I have NO patience!

    Ah bless him, he was very helpful. Oh were you? It was a long wait and really stressful. I know! My stomach goes every time my email goes off :/ scared to check all the time. My friend heard from lsbu today, it's for a 'audition' on Wednesday.

    Yeh for nursing, she did a online test which she passed and got the invite today. The email said it was the final process, so I'm not sure what it entails. Maybe she should take her own scrubs or something and prepare a little dance

    Hahaha yeah she should bring in a general ill person off the street and ask them some uncomfortable questions in a concerned voice, then ask someone else to bring them a cup of tea within the next 4 hours Good God I hope nobody from the selection committee isn't trolling this
    Oh gosh don't say that :/

    I can't remember to be honest, but I dont think it matters what the topic is you dont need to prepare in advance for the english you get given an article to read and then have to awnser questions about it. I think there is also an a short essay question but its quite vague so you can taylor it to what you know and its more about how you write rather than what you write. There are practise test on this :https://www.lsbu.ac.uk/courses/under...e-registration page for the literacy aswell as the maths.

    It doesn't really matter what the subject was, just so long as you are able to plan an argument and execute the piece without spelling mistakes and good punctuation. Critical thinking skills is what they are looking for x

    Hi I've got a math and english test at southbank on the 20th, I'm really nervous about the maths aswell. I would suggest using GCSE bitesize. if you have access to mathwatch then that would also be very helpful aswell. just put some time aside over the weekend, and study somewhere quiet, library etc. make a checklist of all the topics that may come up, and once you're confident with each topic, tick them off your checklist one by one . do alot of mental calculations to refresh your mind, the easier you find it the more quicker you're likely to be during the test. so that saves alot of time. Make sure to take breaks during revision. Good luck with all your tests and interviews !

    Hahaha they forgot me!! I was there until 1pm with another guy, I was STARVING and the guy that was chatting to us after his interview? He stayed talking at me the whole time!!! He was lovely, bless him, but I was tired, hungry, and really nervous and I had to keep chatting with him because he would't go home. My brain and jaw hurt, so I just got up at one stage and said, "I need to stand over here now for a bit" and he started chatting to the other forgotten dude. It was horrendous, by the time it was my interview it was 16 mins long (I don't know if that's a good thing or not, but we had a little laugh and joke) I was so hungry I couldn't think straight really and I actually told them that they had turned into giant talking sandwiches. I really can't call it. I had the lady that was in the middle room. She seemed strict but nice at the end

    Just literacy and numeracy. There shouldn't be an interview as well they only do the interview the same day as the tests if you live 100 miles away. Pass mark for literacy I think was 3/5 They didn't seem hard to me but I had my tests on the 9th of December and still haven't heard anything.

    Thank you so much for your response...I live quite far. Should I request that I have my other interviews same day as well? How about pass mark for numeracy

    Yeah you can always ask them, admissions are friendly The pass mark for maths is in said on their practice paper I think it's about 6 or 7 out of 10.

    I didn't pass the southbank test and I'm actually glad, because I think what they did was awful and humiliating.

    I got an offer from Middlesex yesterday though ! It's such a wonderful uni and the staff are actually kind to people.

    The middlesex practice paper is similar to the real exam. They just add different questions on the same topics. Plus, you get a calculator which is even better!

    I think it may be in regard to how they said if you passed or failed once you had done them in front of people who also had taken the exam but I'm not sure.

    All I know is that they don't tell you straight away now.
