NHS Healthcare Assistant Literacy and Numeracy Test Watch
I have literacy n numeracy test on 25th if I get through then move on to interview phase
Really nervous cuz m not good in maths
Next week I've got a literacy and numeracy test for the post of Healthcare Assistant. Has anyone here taken it before? Is it hard? What sort of questions do they ask?
These may seem like silly questions but I'm quite nervous about it. I'm not entirely sure how far to go with revision.
Could somebody please tell me if I need to have a qualification/ experience in a Hosp to apply for a HCA position?
Also I have Level 2 Literacy but only level 1 Maths, is this good enough?
I currently work in a school and have been the past 20 years but really want to work in a hospital.
It was alright. I passed and have an interview coming up in the next few weeks.
It started really easily with questions like '6 people are working, 3 don't turn up so how many are left?'
It got gradually harder and related maths with the medication, but they never got very hard. Questions like a child is allowed so many mg of paracetamol. You must give it 4 times a day, how much must be given in each dose. Something like that.
The literacy ones were even easier. Some were just correctly punctuating a sentence, others were just reading adverts and deciding which was best for the job.
You'll be fine. Don't worry!
I hope that everything will occur perfectly fine. I am familiar with the practice because I used to live in the area of which it is located. Will keep updated!
Thanks again for this post.
So I have the numeracy and literacy tests next week, so nervous as already had my conditional offer letter for the job.I'm not worried about literacy but the numeracy, is it really hard?
Hi everyoneLike many of you, I too am having a maths and literacy test tomorrow morning. after the tests, I will then have an interview depending on how well I do in the assessments.I have been revising mainly on my maths as it's not good! I have also being meeting up with a maths tutor to help me actually understand what I need to do in terms of multiplying, dividing, subtracting and adding sums. I have also been doing some free online practice tests for HCA.The job role I have applied for is called a 'nursing assistant' but from what I have researched, this is pretty much the same as a HCA assistant role.After reading the email they sent me when they invited me in for an assessment, it stated that it is a 'situational judgement tests'. But when I followed the link in the email, it states band 2 and band 3 nursing assistants will undergo an assessment which will include a maths and literacy test.So I am a bit confused because situational judgement tests are maths, literacy, logical, personality and other tests all inclusive!However, my assessment is only 20 minutes long so I can only assume that it will just be the numeracy and literacy tests!although I have been revising and I have taken it upon myself to hire a maths tutor, I am still quite anxious that I won't pass enough. I read that some of you didn't even get to interview stage even though you only failed 2-5 questions! But some of you have passed even though you got 2-5 questions wrong! this has left me feeling uncertain about what they actually will expect of me.can someone please please give me some advice on the kids of questions they will ask? I have a fair idea but it would really help me if someone who has already been through what I am about to experience tomorrow morning so I can prepare myself a little more. Because its a 20 minute test, will that be say 10 questions on maths and 10 questions on English?I await to hear a response.thank you in advance x.
Have you passed the taste? Or Interview? If you can help me with the procedure and questions??
