I didn't pass the southbank test and I'm actually glad, because I think what they did was awful and humiliating.

I got an offer from Middlesex yesterday though ! It's such a wonderful uni and the staff are actually kind to people.

The middlesex practice paper is similar to the real exam. They just add different questions on the same topics. Plus, you get a calculator which is even better!

Don't feel bad about it. There's a reason for everything, and you will get a uni that is better than southbank.

Yeah I did the test at lsbu yesterday and Middlesex last saturday and I think the contrast between the two unis was very drastic. I haven't obviously received the results from lsbu yet but passed maths test. I think it was horrible now they treated those who failed maths.. Also very disorganised at every step, including facilities, tests and scoring time. They could have conducted the test twice as fast if it wasn't for the separation of the two tests. I'll have an interview at mdx in February and I'm really happy I got offered a date:-)

Basically there was a text on recycling and then there were like 5qs on the text such as purpose, spelling mistakes, grammar etc, very basic. Then there was an essay on obesity. It's jest like the sample test on their website but obviously different text and as.

First off, congratulations for getting an interview at Middlesex!!!

I strongly dislike LSBU mainly because of the things you have previously mentioned.

LSBU thought that I wouldn't make it as a nurse, whereas Middlesex believed that I can become a successful nurse.

The way the woman spoke to those who failed the maths test was just disrespectful and unnecessary. Why can't they let everyone do the maths and English test, then send an email to those who have passed and failed?

Then afterwards, they said that we cannot apply to their institution until the next applicant cycle. Seriously? There are other uni's that are willing to take people on the same course.

Anyway, everything works out for the best

I wish you luck with the Middlesex Interview ^_^

Hey!! Thank you

The interviewers are lovely and it's not as frightening as you think. It's ok to feel nervous! I was nervous myself, because there were two nursing lecturers asking questions and writing down on a piece of paper. It's hard to stay calm and to answer questions slowly, despite them saying that you should "take your time".

All the questions they asked, the answers appeared straight away lol

The questions are straightforward, and there's no twist to them. They just want to know more about you, and your knowledge about the profession.

They will ask why you want to do nursing, care experience, cultural awareness, the differences within job roles e.g healthcare assistant and nurse, current issues in the NHS or nursing (they will ask about both), your qualities and if you have any questions.

As for the waiting time, they give you a drink voucher and then once everyone is registered, they will take you to another building where the interview takes place.

I think they call everyone in order, so you might be waiting for a while until they call you. During that time, you can talk to other candidates and do more research on your phone etc.

The interview lasts for 30 mins, but I managed to finish in 15 minutes whereas, other people just took long lol

They got back to me in a week with their decision. Sometimes it could take up to two weeks.

The main thing is to be yourself and to answer the questions as honest as possible.

Since it's your first choice, I'm sure they will know how much you want to study with them ^_^

Make sure you read articles relating to the NHS and Nursing!

Good luck with the interview xxx

And also, they will ask about the advantages and disadvantages of working in a team

Also search up on the A&E crisis. There are so many articles about it and is a major issue right now.

You are most welcome ! Hopefully we will see each other in September too ^_^!

Message me about the interview, I'm looking forward to hearing from your experience with them.

Hello everyone. I have a LSBU interview on Friday. I am rubbish at maths and I am currently retaking it. What sort of questions did they ask? I'm going to spend the entire week revising maths but I'm pretty bad at at. Was the maths test similar to the tes one they have on their website? Reading everyone's comments has made me really nervous.

Thanks in advance.
Abi xx
