Hey I have an interview on the 4th Feb at 1pm for UCLAN, applied for adult nursing

Can anybody tell me how long approx. the interview was, as I have to book train times. Also, how long did it take for a letter from UCLAN take to arrive after you got an interview date, saying what you have to take and that? Because Ive only got a letter stating my interview time and that on UCAS and I'm really worried because theres only a few more days left and I've never been to an interview before so I dont know what I need to take etc.
Thanks alot

Someone's answered this at the beginning of the thread I think, but it's really easy I wouldn't worry about it.
Probably the easiest nursing interview you can have.

Hi to all those asking about the interview! I had mine today and it took just over 2 hours but I think it can differ on a daily basis, they allow for 3 hours.

Basically the interview consisted of a 10 question numeracy test (basic stuff e.g liquid and distance conversions, multiplication, fractions, addition, subtraction) so make sure you study. You can use a calculator but you must show your working out :-) There is then a written test where you answer a question in essay form. You get 20 minutes for each test. Then you get split into small groups where you do a little ice-breaking with a tutor and other group members, and this gives the uni a chance to get a feel for you and if you have the right character to be a nurse. Then you form large groups and have a group discussion based on projected images, be sure to speak but don't speak too much as everyone needs to have an input, and make plenty of eye contact. The tutors will be observing your interactions as a group. You might find someone belittles/disagrees with what you have said, i'm not convinced this goes down well with the tutors but I could be wrong... Obviously a discussion is good but I don't think the interview is the time or place too poo-poo other people's ideas! Anyway.... Then you do one-on-ones with the tutors where they check your certificates and ID etc. Have you checked your junk emails for the interview guide? That's where mine went! You need originals and photocopies of:

- Certificates for qualifications as shown on your application
- Photo ID (passport/driving license)
- Birth Certificate
-Marriage/Change of name Certificates if applicable
- Oh heck, I can't remember the rest!!! There might not be any more *thinks hard* I'll have to see if I can root it back out.

Hope some of this has helped! Xx

Copy and paste of interview guide content xx

ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS REQUIRED AT THE SELECTION EVENT


VERIFICATION OF CERTIFICATES:

In order to confirm your educational qualifications we need to match the name on your certificates with the name that you use. We therefore need to see the following ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS – WE ALSO REQUIRE YOU TO SUPPLY A COPY OF EACH DOCUMENT (the copies will be retained and kept on your file – if you do not provide originals and copies on the day of interview this could delay you receiving an offer if you have a successful interview):

• Education certificates
As listed on your application form WHICH MUST INCLUDE documentation of literacy and numeracy skills. We need to see your certificates; we are not able to accept ‘notification of results’ slips. If you do not have your original certificates you will need to contact AQA (www.aqa.org.uk/help-and-contacts) for guidance on how to obtain replacement certificates (a ‘Statement of Results’ certificate is acceptable from AQA)

• Birth Certificate
If you do not have this document you will need to obtain an official copy of it from the Registrars Office

• Marriage Certificate
If you do not have this document you will need to obtain an official copy of it from the Registrars Office

• Divorce papers/change of name papers
We need to be able to track all name changes on your application, if you do not have supporting documentation you will need to obtain official copies from your solicitor. If you have officially changed your name, via a Deed Poll, again you must present original documentation at this event

• Photographic ID
You need to provide photographic ID at this event, e.g. passport, driving licence




What to Expect at the Selection Event

The event will last no longer than 3 hours and will consist of the following:

• Small Group work

• Large Group Discussion

• Written Task (no longer than 20 minutes). Please bring a pen with you

• Numeracy Test (20 minutes). A calculator can be used (you will need to bring one with you). It is advisable to practice numeracy calculation – there are several websites, e.g. www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/
