    Here to answer your questions about applying/interviews/course content/placements

    First year of BSc course is the same across all fields (adult/mental health/child) so I can answer any questions about that too!

    Hi

    Congrats! Hope the tests went well.

    The selection day is a group interview. It's really nice and relaxed, by far the nicest interview I went to! xx

    Which parts of the course so far have you struggled with/disliked the most? Also, can you please tell me a bit about your placements? e.g. what tasks did you do in your first year, which bits were your favourite/least favourite and anything else you think might be helpful. Thanks :-)

    I think the jump from first to second year is the thing I've found the most difficult to be honest! I really enjoyed first year, but I would say the assignments were the most difficult (it was just getting to grips with writing at university level really!).

    My placement's in first year were health visiting (community) and I was on a short stay assessment unit (ward). I really enjoyed both of these but I loved being in a hospital setting. I got a really good baseline of knowledge and I found it so useful for my first placements of second year (I've just finished in a&e). Uni really sets you up for it, you do 75 hours of simulated practice in first year before you go out on placement so you feel really ready!

    Thanks a lot! I was quite worried that I wouldn't feel confident enough in my skills before I go out on placement but that seems like plenty of time for me to practice and really get to grips with things :-)

    Yeah they teach you everything you need to know as a first year before you go out so you're really prepared and if you happen to do anything else on placement that uni hasn't taught you, the nurses and medical staff are really good to show you and support you in doing it! xxx

    In first year you have 4 essays, 2 exams and a practical exam plus your placements to pass. In second year you have 3 essays, 1 exam and a practical exam plus placement. And third year you have your dissertation, 1 essay, a medicines management exam and a practical exam plus placement (I think) xx

    I'm not going to be too specific as it might change but for most modules you do, there's an essay that relates to it you need to pass in order to pass the module. one exam is to support an essay and the other exam is a biology exam then you have a practical exam too.

    They're honestly nothing to worry about they're just common sense and really easy to talk about/elaborate on x

    Hi

    You need 39/50 to pass the maths and the English is made up of multiple choice/short answer questions and a short essay.

    Good luck!! X
