    So I have an interview next Friday (20th November 2015) at City University London for Radiography and I'm beyond nervous! Has anyone else been invited? What can I expect to happen in the actual interview? Does anyone know how many people have been invited? Surely I can't be the only one if they're holding a presentation and a few tests?

    Yeah! If you don't mind me asking, how are you preparing for it other than practising the tests? And where else have you applied to?

    Oh right, good luck for the interview on Tuesday! That's a good idea. I've heard that at City you also have to do a written task about the role and importance of a radiographer as well as why you've chosen that course. But that was 2010 so I don't know what it's like now :P

    I've applied to do Diagnostic Radiography at City University London, Salford, Cumbria and St George's University of London and MSci Medical Physics at UCL which isn't NHS funded so it'd be more expensive. At the moment, if I end up getting all 5 offers, I wouldn't know which to pick because they all have their advantages to me in some way or another!

    Yeah I'm using the links in the email they sent us to prepare and looking up common Radiography interview questions. Also going to try and read up on the NHS constitution because they want to make sure our views reflect that of the NHS. I'm nervous too because I've never had a serious interview before and I don't know how to dress or what to expect.

    I'm using the Edexcel Practice Tests but I'm only doing level 2. Presumably it is more difficult than level 1? who knows? lol

    Yes, I'm sure it is. I'm struggling with some Maths questions as I'm only just studying my GCSEs

    Oh are you like resisting your GCSE's or something? Don't worry too much about it! I know that they won't make a decision just based on your results so if you don't end up doing that well in the maths tests you'll still have the interview and such to fall back on. Just try your best!

    Don't worry too much about the NHS values, I'm recently employed in the NHS and waiting for my interviews for Radiography too, basically the values are just as simple as showing that you care for the patient, colleagues and the NHS itself, that you are committed to the job and providing the best patient care and how you can work well with colleagues and patients alike and are prepared to improve and expand in the future.

    I honestly think anyone who wishes to be part of a healthcare profession holds these values anyway, just be true to yourself and remember it is about providing the best for those in your care no matter who they are

    I did my A levels years ago but none of them were in Science. I've done an Access course to Science and now doing my GCSEs
