You have no need to worry, although understandably lots of people are very anxious about it! It'll be addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, ratios and percentages. That sort of thing. It's not even GCSE standard I would say. Revise your knowledge on BBC Bitesize if you need to.

You may get asked some more advanced questions like drug calculations, but these are easy to calculate when you know how.

For example: A baby has been prescribed 100mg of Paracetamol. The liquid you have is 250mg in 5ml. How many ml do you need?

Two simple ways of doing it.

1) (Without a calculator) By ratios. If there are 250mg in 5ml, work out how many mg there are in 1ml... So there are 50mg in 1ml, and you want 100mg, so you need 2ml.

2) Using the formula: what you want (100mg) divide by what you've got (250mg) multiplied by its strength (5ml). But none of the questions they are asking you should require that formula as they should be easy, as the example I have given above is. Meaning you can work it out on ratio.

I hope that helps, and doesn't confuse you. Please don't be phased by the drug calculation, I just know that some unis were asking those types of questions. Good luck!
I'm confused by that haha...god help me!
Thank you for the well wishes...gulp x

Hey try not to panic! I didn't interview at those places but the Maths and English are quite different for each uni so you might find these easier than the one you failed. Have you looked at BBC Bitesize for revision? I found it really helpful for the Maths. Most English tests are just looking to check you can spell and write things that make sense, or a reading comprehension. Just make sure you read the question and take your time.

I met a girl at an interview who failed two unis Maths and English but now has two offers. Stay positive and good luck!

I'll have a look there, it's just over the years maths has not been a string point for me at all.

I had my interview at City yesterday! Well it's not actually an interviewer, it's a group discussion, honestly it was the best one I've had, all you need to do is know why you want to be a children's nurse and be able to show that you can listen and work well with others! Good luck x
Glad it went well for you!
5. I have an interview at LSBU in a couple of weeks and am so worried about it, has anyone had one here before? I've heard something about an essay?
6. I had my interview at Staffordshire on tuesday and DMU yesterday. Both were really good. They were really relaxed and i felt they went smoothly. Has anyone else got or had interviews here? I keep refreshing my emails already haha x

I had my interview at dmu last Tuesday for children's nursing, still haven't heard anything! I'm curious to what they offer as they were one of my top choices along with new bucks who offered me an unconditional offer the day after my interview.

What's your top choice at the moment?

Hey, how did you find your interview? I found the uni really good too, it would be one of my top choices! I atill have an interview at Angila Ruskin to do and Wolverhampton. So I havent decided my top yet, but DMU would be up there, along with staffs! Im hoping to get anywhere yo be honest! As long as i have a space. I'd love to have a choice though lol they said if we don't hear within two weeks to call back. I hope it's soon x
9. Can someone please reassure me that the Southampton maths and English test really aren't too difficult!? I'm not even sure why I'm suddenly panicking, I'm good at English and although maths isn't my favourite subject I'm definitely competent! Think it's just nerves kicking in...eek! :O

Congratulations on your interview! I'm still waiting to hear back from Southampton.
How did you get access to their hobsons thing? Did you just create a new account or did you have returning user details? If so, how did you get these? Worried that I've missed an email or something. 😣 Reading about what happened to you has made me anxious to be able to look at both the unis system, and also track.

i did i got an interview tomorrow so nerves
Hey, I was just wondering how your Salford interview went, how the tests were and the interviews etc. I have mine tomorrow and I'm sooo nervous
15. Don't stress yourself about Salford interviews. Everyone is lovely and it's not really intense. It's more like they're getting a feel for who you are than interviewing you.
