    Ye I'm sure we will , my actual name is Gravisha. Just got a reply from King's explaining they've been really busy and will send the enrolment task by the end of the week so thankfully that's sorted .
    Oh good. You must be relieved. I will watch out for anyone named Gravisha on thursday or friday next week. My real name is Ugomma 😉

    Anyone heard about the Welcome Picnic? Can't remember the day as I found it facebook and have now deactivated my account (hate facebook)
    Also, the mature student mixer sounds cool- not sure if 23 can be thought of as mature though

    Hi Clare, Yay I'm a mature student too (26)... thought i'd be the only one on the Bsc children's, think most mature students are doing the pgdip. Add me of fb- Chloe Elizabeth Turner. I hadn't really thought about attending the mixer, but i guess its a good opportunity to meet everyone
    I'm attending the Friday mixer that is between 4 and 5! you should definitely give it a go! will be a great opportunity! I've added you on Facebook, My name is Clare Louise Sadler.

    Hi guys
    Picked up my student card yesterday...this is real now
    Am also going to the mature student mixer thing next weds so hope to see some of you there! Oh and i got a 16-25 rail card yesterday (I'm 31 but you can get one if full time mature student) - and it made me laugh because in the space where it says 'date of birth:' it just says 'mature student' ! Weirdly I like that date of birth is now irrelevant now that i'm classed as 'mature' lol!
    Also once you've enrolled you can get your council tax exemption letter, u need to send an email to [email protected] with your name and student id in it, and then go to the student services desk on 3rd floor of the james maxwell building (by the imax)..

    Hi, my name is Harriet and i'm doing BSc Child Nursing, looking forward to meeting you all. Feel free to add me on facebook 'Harriet Sagar'.

    Also wondering what everyone's plan is for enrolment week?
    Is it right we're in for uniform fitting in Tuesday 2-3 then in again on Thursday 1.30-5.30 for our actual induction getting timetables and stuff then in on Friday 9-11 for placement based information? Is that all for next week? I'm worried I've missed something haha

    Hi guys! I've been searching around and I haven't found a thread specifically dedicated to Kings (I'm probably wrong, feel free to correct me) Nursing Applicants for September 2015.

    I figured it would be good to have this so we can see when everyone is getting offers, interviews etc but also so we have people we know if we do end up firming and going to Kings.

    Hi Rose, we had to sign an nda so we can't actually tell you what came up exactly. The maths exam was as gcse level. They should have sent link to join NHS [email protected] which realllly helped me. Very similar questions to the exam. You can just google it.

    This is also a link to an example of what the exam looks like
    https://www.kcl.ac.uk/nursing/study/...le-2013-14.pdf

    Regarding the mmi... Everyone has their own experience, but all I can say is just be yourself. Prepare youself as you would for a normal interview. Think about why YOU want to go into this profession and most importantly let them see your passion.

    Good luck

    Hello Kwat,

    My first degree is in Politics and I got a place this year so I think as long as you write a very good statement and have relevant experience you should be fine.

    Hi everybody!

    I am looking for advise. Next year I would like to apply for nursing at KCL, but I worry because I am from eu, I have comparsion to A-levels AAAB but no science subject!! But my gcse includes everything what whey want - maths, english and science. Is it possible to apply? I also worked as au-pair and eldery carer so hope it can helps. How is it with english? Ielts at 7.5? What next do they require? I read about tests - maths can be ok but I can't image literacy and MMI. Can anybody explain it to me?

    Thank you so much and good luck
