    I took the test a few days ago and there's three parts to it. The first part involves maths calculations and I found those relatively easy! It's like basic GCSE maths. The second part involves a few ethical scenarios which have multiple choice answers and then the last part is the essay question (which I found a little challenging) but Im not really sure how how you could prepare for it since it could be on anything health related, I presume. I think the best thing to do, as there are 50 mins to take the whole test, is to make sure you give yourself enough time for the essay! So for me I took about 20 mins on the questions and saved about 30 mins to do the essay and even had time to go back and edit it! Hope this helped and good luck

    Thank you so so much!!!
    just to further clarify though, I'm an international student so I don't do GCSEs. Not quite sure what level of difficulty that would be. Would that be like simple algebra?
    Sorry if that's a dumb question I'm just a bit unfamiliar.

    Ahh no don't worry! So questions from what I can remember were things like what is 26.5987 to 2 decimal places, and percentages questions. I think there was one question which used relative molecular mass Mr from chemistry but it was really simple
