    I have my tests in two weeks, can u give me tips on numeracy and literacy questions and what to expect. I really need your help pls.

    I have been struggling a bit with maths but little advise from you, I believe I will be fine, I urgently need help plssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

    is there any comprehension in literacy and the maths does it have multiple choice questions . How long does both tests last. Is calculators allowed?

    it will be great if you could help me



    There are 40 questions for the maths test. You are allowed a calculator so bring a scientific one .

    Also the literacy test, they give you two scenarios . You pick one and write about what you would do about them and u have to incorporate the 6Cs into your answer. The English and maths together is one hour but can spend however much time u want .

    U need to pass both tests to get an interview.

    You need to get 30 out of 40 to pass the maths test. If u fail one ur application won't progress . They can take up to 7 days to 2 weeks to get back to u.

    For revision BBC bitesize is really amazing and it has all the topics u need to revise to past the test. There's some conversions, multiplication and a bit of everything else like the basics from maths GCSE. There's no algebra.

    Don't worry u will be absolutely fine. Walk in with confidence and jus focus on time management. I wish you all the best . If u have anymore questions, I'm happy to answer
