    Hi, I just wanted to start a chat for anyone who has a place or is applying to be an ODP at Edge hill for April 2016. I have a place already but I haven't found anyone else who has and it'd be great to get to know some people. Also, if anyone has any questions about the interview then feel free to ask!

    Hi
    I met some prospective nursing students whilst at the interview and it was basically the same interview I think so I'll tell you what I did. I had the maths test first which wasn't too bad as I have only just finished school so could remember a lot of it but there was a few things that were a bit trickier as I'd not done them in ages i.e. Multiplying decimals (but they're easier if you multiply them by 10 and then do it) as well as long division/multiplication. It's honestly not too bad though I also think that Nursing students are allowed to use a calculator but we weren't for some reason so hopefully that should make it a bit easier. The English was slightly harder as you had to match some words with their alternative versions and I had never heard of a few of them but they were ok once I'd got rid of the easier options. There was also a reading comprehension task. After that the head ODP man gave us all a token for a free drink which was nice. As for the interview itself, it was great. The interviewers were lovely and we spent a lot of time talking about fried chicken and we had a synchronised coughing fit so they gave me some mints Haha. Just make sure that you fully research what you'll be studying and why you want to do it and you should be fine! I've found a link for examples of the maths and English tests here:

    I hope that all of this helps, hopefully I'll see you next year!

    Thank you for all that, I'm going totally prepare myself for the day, its awful to think that even though you may be so dedicated in what your about to learn and what you want to achieve, your future depends on about 3 hours and whether they pick you :-( .. Congratulations on your place, one of my friends is an ODP and has been for 10 years, she loves it x

    I was only given a few days notice for my interview so I spent most of my time preparing for the questions and learning about the course. But I am a massive fan of reading so I have a lot of general knowledge about words which made it a bit easier for me. I would recommend just doing the easier words first as you would be able to eliminate a few options and then look at the harder ones. I hadn't heard of some of the words too but they are not looking for a perfect score, just looking to see if your basic English is good enough. Sorry I can't be of more help, just try to match as many of the words as you can. I'm sure that you will do well

    Thank you for replying, I didn't think that I could find anyone since there's so few of us beginning in April. I've applied for my accommodation and nearly have everything sorted, which is quite exciting! It'll be great to meet you in April
