I have an interview this Wednesday (28th Jan 2015) at Aylesbury college for Access to higher education - Nursing.
Iv'e never been good at maths, and got a E at GCSE, i'm ****ting a brick because iv'e been told i will have to sit a BSKB test in Maths at the interveiw and my offer will be subject to
''A completed BSKB test in English and Maths at L2''
i rang the college after getting this email and the advisor told me not to worry too much about what the email said as the test is more to see what level you are working at.
ive been doing tests on this website http://www.move-on.org.uk/ilr_php/numeracy/stage2.php
is this website good for revising and is it similar to the BSKB tests i will sit?
i just need some advice as im worried the test will be too hard for me and i wont get into college.

From the title page the website looks similar to the BKSB. I can't really say for sure though.
As the advisor said on the phone, it's more to see what your ability is. This is so that when the teacher comes across a topic that's particularly maths-heavy, they can concentrate on the students that they know aren't so good at maths and make sure you understand.
I think they only ask applied questions, based on everyday use of maths.
I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you haven't done maths in a long time, you should do a little practice. Have a look over what you covered for GCSE if you still have the textbooks etc.. If not, maybe get a GCSE textbook and start working through it a bit, even if it's just to give you reassurance.
I'm not the best case to take anecdotes from, but I took two (two years ago) and found them very easy.
