Hi!
I recently completed the test and passed. Its not very difficult, there are 25 maths questions to be completed in half an hour. Don't spend too long on a question! The questions are mainly long multiplication, addition, percentages and fractions. This sample test from Tesside University is quite helpful so try it out. (I posted it below)

1. 949 + 786 = 2. 71 – 58 = 3. 16.66 – 7.87 = 4. 4.78+ 5.84 = 5. 7 ¼ - 3¾ = 6. 479 x 9 = 7. 126 sweets are shared equally among 7children. How many sweets does eachchild receive? 8. An 83 cm piece is cut from a length of ribbonmeasuring 1.3 metres. What length isleft? 9. What is the total cost of 8 loaves of bread at£1.38 each? 10.

How many metres arethere in 2.5 km? 13. 1gram(g) = 1,000 milligrams (mg). Convert 325 mg to grams. 14. 30%of a group of 80 children wear black socks. How many wear black socks? 15.

Also try the maths sample test from here http://www.lsbu.ac.uk/courses/underg...e-registration (its another university). Dont worry too much if youre not good at maths, just revise addition, multiplication, percentages and fractions on BBC bitesize GCSE. You need 18/25 to pass, or you did when I had to sit the test. You cant use a calculator! The English test is an essay, 200-300 words in half an hour, its a question about the qualities gained from your experience caring for others. Pass mark is 3/5, probably based on your grammar, punctuation etc. Its quite relaxed compared to other tests so I wouldnt worry too much! They give a presentation about bursaries, placements and course structure before you begin, which is helpful. Also where is your test, the Avery Hill campus of the Medway Campus? And which branch of nursing are you applying for?

4. I did the tests for Greenwich at their Medway Campus. The maths was simple, no calculator needed. Mostly addition, subtraction, decimals and fractions. I don't know what the pass mark was, but I think there were only 10 or so questions. The English was a short essay question - they're looking for spelling, grammar and handwriting.

Heyy! Thank youu

& how long after the test day do they take to tell you if youve passed or not?
(P.s. Mine is at Avery Hill Campus Room M002. Ground Floor. Mansion Site/Building. Bexley Road. Eltham. London)
So nervous don't wanna fail again..it was a horrible feelingg.. yeah

8. Some of them are wordy. Nothing too complex, pretty straightforward. For example one question was about plane tickets and the cost for two adults and two children. Just make sure you read the question because sometimes they might be asking for something that's not so obvious. Oh don't worry about failing South bank! You'll get into another university! For me they sent me an email a day later saying I had passed and they were arranging interviews. I got another email about an interview at the end of the week for an interview at the end of February. So not long at all, Greenwich is good at replying quickly! I had my test at Avery Hill too, Southwood site!

You should be fine I would advise you to read questions carefully and use your time wisely. South bank had ten maths questions although you didn't pass did you find it hard to answer them in half an hour? I'm asking because Greenwich had 25questions in half an hour which is a lot more. So practise using your time wisely!! It may differ for your test, so you may end up getting less questions! But just in case!

Have you applied anywhere else apart from South Bank?

10. Well if you found Middlesex test easy I don't think you'll find Greenwich that hard! When did you have the test for Middlesex? I had mine on the 6th of February and I had my interview on the 3rd of March! They took about three weeks to reply! Where do you wanna go? As in your first choice? Mine is Middlesex! 😊 hopefully!

12. I did my test for Greenwich last year and it is soooo easy.

You just need to go over your basic maths such as multiplication, division, add, subtract etc

No calculators are permitted.

Good luck

20. For the maths. Adding subtracting division multiplication percentage and fractions. There were a few decimal multiplications. And what’s cheaper a dress with 1/4 off or 30% off that sort of thing. z
