    Also is there anywhere suitable to add that I have a full UK driving license? (as in so they know i'm fine traveling on the different rotations) or is it not important?

    Not important. Rotations will probably all be in the same city and accessible by public transport.

    Not important. One of the questions in the screening section is : Are you willing to travel to undertake the work place-based and academic elements of the training programme?

    Depending on where you get placed rotations could be spread far apart. getting placed in Colchester Hospital could have you travelling/moving temporarily to Cambridge, Norwich or Peterborough for specialist rotations. But there are no bonus points for telling them you can do the rotations. The consultant I work with says you're expected to move/travel wherever. If you're not willing, there are tens of others who will take your place.

    Everyone I've spoken to, who works in the NHS, seems totally unfussed about the name change. Our role and job isn't going to change but in the future genomics will play a greater role. Genomics encapsulates things like NGS and means you have a bigger picture about the whole genome compared to genetic testing where you may be aware of only a few loci.

    Yeah I applied last year for genetics and got to shortlisting but was a reserve for interview. Now I've done a masters and feel in a much better place. How about you?
    in my third year of undergrad so never applied before,,,
    Hoping and praying!

    I've been reading about it (wasn't 100% what genomic entails here), too, and actually I like genomic more than genetic ^^. It's awesome that there's another root now to becoming a genetic/genomic counselor than Manchester's masters program which happens every two years for 10 people and costs more than what I could potentially afford...

    Nope, I'm in my final year of BSc. so it's my first time...been preparing for a while though. Bought some numeracy tests a while ago because they really scare me What about you?


    Did you get some feedback last year? To help you tailor your application even better now...And what Master's did you do?
    ye same.. was waiting for positions to come out before learning for the tests.. my mental maths is good but the tests are hard i gna have to practise.. yes tsvety how was the application process?? any tips?
    Also - i read somewhere that the interviews are going to be the last weeks of april and the specific dates - did anyone see this too??? I dont no why i cant find that info anymore

    I think the maths itself is not that hard, it's simple percentages, divisions, etc, nothing too complicated....but I can't freaking do it in 90/75 seconds I usually get to choosing the answer and I run out of time which is so so so annoying...Haha, it's my first time applying so I'm just as clueless as you are xD I think I saw the interview info in the application guidelines document, there's a whole section about the interviewing process

    I'm answering the essay questions now, I'm, too, finding it hard to stick to the word limit. But most other job applications also have 250 word limit so it's a common practice I suppose...

    Questions 3 regards NHS values and behaviours and asks: 'please describe how within your own experience you would display these qualities.'

    What does this even mean? Is it asking how we have displayed them in the past or how we would display them in the new role? I think it's worded quite ambiguously!

    I think it's supposed to be ambiguous! Basically personally reflect on the NHS core values. You can talk about past examples (always good) or you can relate the NHS values in a future role. It's conpletely up to you how you answer. Not really the solid clarification I know but all the questions are designed to be interpreted in different ways.

    Hi All,

    Can anyone find the specific job/ person description tailored to the post? I can only find the generic description with 'insert pathway here' kind of text on the National School's website- wanted to double check incase I'm potentially missing anything!

    Thanks
