    Hello, was just wondering if anyone that has had a literacy and numeracy test at KCL could help me out. I think i'm alright with the numeracy test but i understand the literacy tests vary quite a lot from university to university.

    Is the KCL literacy test more short and snappy- such as 'tick the correct adverb'. Or is it more like, asking you a question and them expecting a short essay type of thing to assess your grammar. If this is the case, what sort of questions were asked?

    Lastly- i know people find the experience interviews different but briefly- what are the MMI's like? and what sort of things did they ask?

    Any help would be sooooooo appreciated!!

    Hey I had my test on the 27th. With the numeracy it's basic questions like add this together or conversions. Bear in mind that the pass mark for maths is 13/15.
    With the literacy you have to read a story and answer questions on it. Very simple but just make sure that your grammar and spelling is good.
    Still waiting on my results. But best of luck!!

    No. I think you only have an interview on the same day if you live far. I live 20 minutes away so I think that's why I wasn't offered an interview.

    Sorry the pass mark is 12/15 and to be honest I don't think so. Met a girl that lived all the way in Surrey and she didn't get one.

    Alright thanks so so much! I'm a bit less worried now, only thing i'm worried about is the literature but we'll see.

    That's because midwifery and nursing have different tests. Don't be scared!

    Thats what i'm also confused about, i want to know if its something i can prepare for such as 'describe a time you were a leader' or if it will just be a random question we can't really prepare for where they test your grammar, spelling etc.

    Is the test calculator or non calculator? Where there any drug dosage questions on it too? Or just simple maths, like percentages, fractions and decimals?

    Hi guys, I received an offer for child nursing at kings recently. The numeracy test is pretty similar to the practise ones, just make sure you use the services they've provided for you on the website! It's the literacy test that's tricky as it's hard to write 12/15 marks worth in 20 minutes , but my best advice would be to take 5 minutes to read the text and then answer the questions as detailed as possible, it's about quality not quantity at the end of the day. Good luck!
