    Hi ladies
    I have an interview in Chester uni this week for midwifery, I'm so exstreamly nervous 😩 about the whole process, Chester you do a maths test first, if you don't pass you don't get the opportunity to even have the interview, which I think is very unfair as people have much more potential to be a excellent midwife than noing algebra when giving the support to a labouring woman, anyway rant over 😀 Please can you guys give me some feed back if you've ever been to Chester university thank you Donna xxxx

    The maths tests are usually very basic, and I would be highly surprised if they contained any algebra. Usually you would be tested on multiplication, division, addition and subtraction, as well as some percentages, fractions, decimals (converting between) and some basic unit conversion. It usually is around the level expected of a 13/14 year old.

    Although you make valid points, it is also very important that nurses and midwives possess the relevant maths knowledge to ensure that they are safe to make both simple and more complex drug calculations.
