    I'll PM you later if that's okay? I'm kind of busy atm with uni work so I don't wanna give you half hearted response.
    Hello there, I am also looking to apply to Kings College in 2017. I would have applied to the 2016 cohort, but my nerves really got to me in submitting my application as I was having constant nightmares regarding the numeracy and literacy and therefore, realised I need more time to revise. I have a GCSE C in Maths and English which I got many moons ago and a 2:1 from University of Birmingham, which I gained quite confidently (submitting my dissertation in last minute) yet, I'm more nervous for the numeracy and literacy tests than I was for my assignments at university. Would it be possible for you to advise me what sort of questions came up etc or anything that can help me get started, please? I guess my fear stems from the fact that I really want this, as King's is the only university that I will be applying for, therefore any help is appreciated.

    Do people who apply for "widwifery" go in this section?
    Is there any extra exams i.e entrance exams for the course above or? ^

    I have a sis applying for it next year just curious as I'm applying to KCL for Physics.

    Sorry - just realised you asked about the tests rather than the entire interview! I had my interview and tests on the 20th and they said two/three weeks, so for just the tests, I'm not sure!
    The information for the maths and literacy test is here- this is for nursing, but this is where I got my information from http://www.kcl.ac.uk/nursing/study/a...ays/index.aspx

    Hope this helps

    I had my interview and tests on 12th January for Adult Nursing and not heard anything back yet. Fingers crossed that no news is good news. Someone I met when whilst having a coffee before my interview had her interview a hour after me for children's nursing and she got a offer on Tuesday 26th January.

    I got rejected by UWE and Cardiff, didn't even make the interview stages. Had my heart set on UWE as could of lived at home if I was offered a place. Oh well, it wasn't meant to be. When did you have your interview at Kings? I hate waiting, they said we would hear in 2-3 weeks, it will be 3 weeks for me on Tuesday.
    Haven't had my interviews yet. Had my tests lat week waiting for feedback fingers crossed for us

    Hey I went on the 27th too. I definitely know that he pass mark for maths is 13 out of 15. Not really sure what it is with the English. I think they just look at spelling and grammar.
