    Hi
    I recently did the assessment, the tests last about an hour for the literacy and numeracy however if you are not studying child nursing then you also have to undertake an aptitude test. I think there was about 20 questions for numeracy and the pass mark was 17 or 18, its pretty high; wouldn't worry too much though since its basic numeracy skills there's not much conversion.
    They get back to you pretty quickly too

    Brilliant , thanks
    So I assume each test is allocated with 30mins. I also wanted your confirmation whether the actual test was quite the same as the sample tests on their website? ie., each question is senario based for numeracy test , and all multiple choice questions for the literacy test.

    Yeah the test are really similar to the online sam0le ones. The numeracy test is all multiple questions i think theres one or two conversion questions btw. Literacy has a fill in the gap for the correct grammar in swntences and thy give you like a page of text and you select which statements relating to the text is most relevant e.g what is the main purpose of the article. At the end of the literacy test you have an essay question

    Good luck! Don't worrry its quite straight forward just don't over think or doubt your grammar when it.comes to the literacy bit

    Thanks! that Sounds straight forward hopefully they are to me! Oh also, I've just read on another thread under nursing for city university, and I saw someone mentioned the pass marks for literacy&numeracy are;
    Maths - 39/50
    English - 25/30

    Obviously the number of question is lots more than what you said. I wonder the test differs according to specialties?

    Tbh I'm not too sure what the pass mark was I saw another thread and asked a friend who applied previously and that's what I got. Yeah the literacy test is different for adult and child. Also I was referring to the number of questions not the marks allocated to each question.
