    I know for a fact that I would be sitting with an unconditional offer from Edinburgh if my UKCAT was higher
    I feel the same. I know for a fact I would have gotten 4 interviews and at least one of them would be an offer. That damn ukcat test.

    I have two support worker interviews next week. Does anyone know what type of questions they normally ask. Also, is being a support worker just as good as being a HCA.

    This is what the role of a support worker involves:-

    Support Workers are specially appointed to provide physical, practical, personal, emotional and domestic support to individuals in an independent living situation. Care and support is generally provided on a one-to-one basis with a service user in their own home however there is also a need to support individuals in day centres, work placements, at college and in social activities.

    Does anyone know what type of questions I might get asked in the interviews. My two interviews are on the same day, for different organizations.

    I would really appreciate any help.

    what do you do then? All i do is change diapers and feed and wash them in the morning. Seeing so many old wrinkly bodies naked was slightly traumatic but i was over it after a week...till one of them made sexual noises while i was cleaning her and tried to persuade me for sex :afraid:
    Been there before, it's good to flirt.

    Do you's reckon a dispensing technician job would be okay of I can't get HCA? As much as I'd love to get asked for sex by an oap lmao, bless you Dmz
    Good luck, during my first year at University I was a saturday boy at Lloyds Pharmacy which looked really good in my PS I think.

    :hi:

    Oh I didn't get any interviews for HCA or Support Worker jobs :nope: so I wouldn't know what to suggest. But as far as job interviews go, they are much much easier than university interviews. Just go in, talk about yourself, mention a few of your skills here and there, be confident and you'll get the job :yep:

    :goodluck:

    Enough to get an offer?

    Can't say for definite but I work at a newsagents, a bar, and my old school and got an offer

    But in all seriousness I don't think what you'd do would constitute as caring or work experience to uni's so I'd make sure you get plenty of that as well :yep:
