    Hello, I have got an interview for edge hill in April, and I am well aware that there is a literacy and numeracy professional skills test to do; however in an e-mail from edge hill they mentioned an english, maths and science skills test that will be taken during the interview process.
    Has anybody else completed these, and if so could you let me know what sort of topics the science test will include.

    Josh
    Hi Josh, I had my interview in January and the tests on the day are nothing to worry about!!! They are all multiple choice which makes it easier. The science test is like basic knowledge that you should already know, if i can remember there were topics like magnets and space that came up. Honestly don't worry about it!! Hope this helps

    I know I chose SEN second and I think history for my first. (I can't remember if it was history or art as I was torn between the two and couldn't decide)

    When did you have your interview?

    I'm doing the fastrack starting in June

    Ah that's brilliant thanks. Another quick question while I am here, they have told me to brush up on current educational issues, does this come up much during the interview?

    I'm not completely sure about the ones for primary because they may be different from early years but for mine the science one was easy, I got 20/20 on it even though I haven't done science for three years and just about scraped a C at GCSE, mine had like reading a label on a milk carton and looking at the nutrients, there was also one about a metal bar with like a coil wrapped around it, and a question about space but like I said it may be a bit different for general primary education. Good luck!

    (also bare in mind the maths and science ones are multiple choice, so don't stress too much about them!)

    Not picked a book yet. Had a few in mind but then got a bit worried they were all a bit obvious and that I should try to pick something a little more obscure. I think that's my problem entirely haha.....I keep wondering whether I should be going more in depth....then worry that I'm trying to be too clever haha!

    Do you have a book in mind? Have you done your literacy and numeracy tests yet?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yes I feel the same! I've got less than 2 weeks until my interview now so super nervous!

    No, I'm currently living in Spain as a language assistant so I haven't done my tests yet! Have you?

    That's fab! You should be confident...that's great experience to have 😎 Will you be specialising in MFL then?

    I've done Lit and have Numeracy next week. I wanted to go to the interview with them done....fingers crossed!!

    Think I'm going for an EYFS focus with my book so need to swat up on that a bit.

    Scary isn't it! 😬 x
