Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone has been to an interview for paramedic science at Wolverhampton Uni. If anyone has, I'd be so grateful if someone could tell me what to expect!
Regards,
Liam

Hi,

I've got mine tomorrow and I'm so nervous it's ridiculous! Have you had yours yet? If so what was it like?

Hi,

It's honestly not that bad! It's nothing like a traditional interview, it's values based. If you've got what it takes, they see it, so don't worry!
For the maths test, you can use a calculator so I suggest you take one or you can use your phone!
It's a long day so be prepared.

Regards,

Liam

Hi,

This is gonna sound so weird, but did you take your own food? Because I know there's a lunch break but I don't know if I need to take any or if there will be any there? Also, have you had an offer come through yet? I was wondering how long that would take?

Thanks,
Ruth

Hey,

There is a lunch break, food isn't provided but there is a canteen where you can buy food & drinks from. If you're paying by card, you have to spend minimum £4. So taking your own is totally up to you!
I had my interview last Monday and haven't received anything as of yet, they did say 2 weeks though.
Honestly, just be yourself, no need to be nervous, the people are lovely.
Let me know how you get on!

Good luck,

Liam

Hi

I only applied Monday & this evening recieved invite to interview Friday am! So quick..

It states numeracy test is with no calculator? and what is the Literacy?

Also it states Presentation at 9.30am but does not tell me what I need to present about?

I am a mature student and oh my gosh I feel really over whelmed as not sure what to expect at all.

Any advice would be great.

Hi

I got an email saying no calculator, however I got there and was told as of now, we're allowed to use one!
The literacy test isn't a pass or fail, it's just to see if you need any help during the degree, nothing at all to worry about!
You don't have to present anything, it's just the presentation of what the degree entails. Make sure you take all the info in as it is helpful!
Don't worry, be calm, smile and be as confident as can be! Honestly, they're all so lovely.
Little tip, revise conversions (grams into Mg etc) :P

All the best,

Liam

Oh right, sorry!

It isn't a traditional interview, it's values based so they ask you a scenario and you just have to say how you'd act/respond. Don't worry, it's going to be fine!

Mine was today and it was okay! The maths was easy as pie, no need to worry. The interview was a little tough but it was actually quite fun, you're right though, it was a long day. Because I lived the closest I was left till last for the interview and left about 4. Other than that it was great!!

Regards,
Ruth

They said we'd hear back in about two weeks (10 working days it said on the form they gave us) so hopefully you'll hear back soon Liam!

Lou, the parking is only okay if you get there early! When I got there at 9 it was full and couldn't park so get there about 8 if you want a space I'd say.

Good luck!
