My first choice is Leeds as I'm from Leeds but Manchester is definitely looking good if I'm unsuccessful!!

Hey guys.....

I'm a 3rd year at Brighton (Adult field).... not sure how other universities will interview but I could offer the following advice:

1. Make sure you are up on current affairs in nursing and healthcare generally i.e. Ebola is a MASSIVE topic at the moment, as is antibiotic resistance, infection control, the re-organisation of primary care.... tons of things regarding the NHS as a whole.
2. Be sure to have a solid answer when asked "why do you wish to become a nurse." Saying that you want to help people doesn't really show much about your character, what motivates you, your ambitions etc. My university offer a variety of post-grad courses so emphasize your wish to pursue an evidence-based profession with scope for career advancement.
3. Experience - try and highlight relevant experiences you've had with people i.e. looking after a sick relative, volunteering at a charity, doing a first-aid course. A lot of the time, people experience is a pre-requisite but of course, this doesn't necessarily have to be healthcare related. For example, my friends have been air stewards, learning disability support workers, charity workers etc. Remember nursing is often a second career for many so make sure you highlight your life experience as well.
4. Prepare for the numerical test (GCSE level, fractions, ratios, long multiplication/division) - do not worry about this! It's really not difficult.
5. The English test is really about whether you can form articulate, informative, constructive paragraphs that make sense. Again, very straight forward.

I hope this is comprehensive enough. Do let me know if you need anything else. As I mentioned before, this was my own experience at Brighton though others will probably have a similar process.

Be yourself, give a strong handshake, make eye contact, crack a joke!

Good luck,

Ash

Wow well done you!! Huge congrats!

What grades have you got/will you end up with? How was the English and Maths? And do they send people home if they fail either of the tests?

Sorry for all the questions, well done again! x

Hey guys! I've already graduated with alevels but i'm currently on a gap year, doing voluntary and paid work, and taking some re-sits to improve my grades further
Still working on my personal statement so my application hasn't been sent off yet but i'm also wondering about the numeracy and english tests?
Congratulations to those who have already gotten offers or invites to interviews!
