    Lots of scenario questions! They will pick scenarios out of a big pile, they are like who would be made priority from 2 different case studies. Why do you want to be a nurse and why this university :-)

    That does't sound as scary as I imagined are you starting this March or next? I'm hoping to start next March if I get an offer. Do you remember what they asked you about the article they ask you to bring in?

    Pretty much as abovr...scenarios which is difficult to really prepare for but not scary!
    It was a small group interview which I found odd but not competetive like other group interviews I have had in the past.
    They were very friendly so that made it easier.
    Listen to what they ask and answer that question! You will get asked about experience etc so you do not need to say everything in your head and miss the point of the question.

    Also they just asked us to talk about article. So think about what you want to say eg. Why you chose it.

    Adult nursing what about you? Are you from Northampton? Did you feel the interview went well?
    I was trying not to think about it too much because I would've spent all day on track haha. They only took 4 days to reply, including a weekend so hopefully it will be the same for you

    Ive gone for adult nursing too based at mk hospital

    I feel it went ok .. i feel like the other two people in my interview were such great candidates though so i cant imagine them picking me.

    Northampton is my no1 choice though i dont want to go anywhere else!

    Are you firming it? X

    I'm sure you'll be fine! I felt the same, the other girl in my interview had loads of experience and I have none yet so I was sure I wouldn't get in. I only applied for Northampton because I love close by, lucky I did get in!
