    I'm interested in... I currently work at the University Hospitals of Leicester as an Administrator and have decided I work like to change my career. So when I saw an advert for HCA on the hospital website I applied and got an interview, I was so pleased. On the day of the interview I did the maths, English and written test and passed with 24/25 on the math and English test. So got through to the interview part, which again I was told I had the job. I was so excited that at 48 years old I still had it.
    I contacted HR today to arrange my face to face interview, and asked again what I needed to bring, only to be told I needed to bring my CSE results from school, I did mention to them that my mum had destroys my certificate when we fell out. I contacted OCR and they have told me it would cost £45.00 to get a new certificate. I did put down all my results. I did not do the math exam at school as I was ill on the day of the exam and never got the chance to retake it. I have told HR I am willing to do a math course through work, as I know other HCA at the trust do this.
    But I was told the job offer might be revoked as I do not have the maths qualification an no certificate for the others.
    I feel very upset and angry as I passed all of the test at interview.
    I would be glad of any advice.

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!
