    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone could advise me on the importance of the maths tests you do in interviews? Obviously they're important, or they wouldn't be part of the selection process, but does the interview result depend on the outcome of the maths tests? How important in the decision making process is it? For example, if you show great skills in every other aspect, and then do badly in the maths test, will that result in a rejection?

    Well, yes...I get that they're important, otherwise there'd be little need for the maths assessment in the interview, but do the interviewers reject applications on the basis of the maths result, even if the rest of the interview is fantastic?

    We had people who didnt get on our course because they failed the maths tests according to the guy who runs the course.

    Hmm you probably could fail the interview if you performed really bad in it...i'm so glad the Uni I applied to doesn't do maths tests in the interview!

    I also have an interview (3 days- eeek!) and I read that the test will form part of the discussion at the interview, so you will probably end up discussing some of the questions. Hopefully if you don't do so well it's a chance to redeem yourself, but it's fairly important to do as well as possible of course!
    Good luck with your interview
