    It's very easy, they will give you an easy question like mine was "what motivated you to apply for mental health nursing" and the other question my friend had was "what qualities do you think a mental health nurse needs" obviously they'll ask about your specific branch. They'll want two pages of writing (:

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! I wasn't sure if the question would be something about a current issue in nursing or more application related.

    No, they're not testing your knowledge at all, it's more to see your writing style/grammar/spellings etc.

    Good luck - let me know how it goes

    I will do! If you don't mind me asking you another question, how did you find the maths one too? Is there a pass mark?

    The maths was pretty easy but I'd prepared loads there's 6 sections and you need at least 50% in each section. It's stuff like fractions, converting units, multiplication and division. I think there are a few practice tests on these links (though i copied off another forum so not sure if they all work.

    Hi Soph, I was wondering how long after your exam you heard from Cardiff? I had mine almost 3 weeks ago and I still haven't heard anything from them!

    Thanks
