    There is nursing interview advice linked below in my signature which should be useful to you.

    I would strongly recommend that you do not base your university choices on which universities do not have maths and English tests, but choose somewhere that you like.

    Universities do not have to provide a response until May, and how quickly they reply varies from year to year. Two applicants may apply at the same time but it is perfectly possible for one to receive an offer immediately, while the other has to wait weeks or months for a decision to be made.

    I think that all universities have literacy and numeracy tests as this is stipulated by the NMC. The universities all have sample tests on their website, just practice a few of those and you will be fine.
    The university that I am at have annual maths tests that you have to pass with 100% pass rate, you can't make a mistake with patients medication

    How universities select nursing applicants is up to them.
    This may change with the new pre- registration standards that are due to be released next year by the NMC.
    The university I'm at do not have maths or English as part of the selection process and have only recently moved to MMI's.
    However, once on the course maths is a very important aspect and we're tested every year on this.
    I personally wouldn't want to mess up anyone's medication and have that hanging over me!

    For interview it's basic maths and English you're tested on, like can you write in sentences and show understanding? And maths is usually basic arithmetic.
    Try not to worry too much and good luck!

    I finished the maths today at my interview - but did not finish the English - I completed two and a half out of three questions.

    The maths was ok, I think - as far as anyone can tell - the interview was ok - and I'm worried about the English. It's never been my best subject, but I did get B's at English Language and Literature.

    If I get rejected, can I ask for feedback about the English?

    Most universities have sample questions that you can practice in advance, they really helped me. For the maths the BBC Bitesize website is good practice, for the English paper I would recommend quality over quantity
