    Hi Favegreat,
    Have the university sent you any information about what the test involves or is it on their website? Normally it's basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and converting decimals to fractions and fractions to decimals. Some ask this in a scenario type question. Some universities allow a calculator some don't. They should let you know beforehand.
    I have heard that revising GCSE maths on bbc bite size is helpful. It would be level 2 maths.
    I hope this helps.
    And good luck.

    Hey, they normally will have sent an email with links as to what the selection process will entail. I had my interview there early december and we were given a calculator for the maths test. There was also group discussion, MMI's and a campus tour. The staff were very friendly. I had my interview at Canterbury campus. I got offered a place and that's where I'll be studying in September

    No news is good news really, I have had to supply further information and I'm still waiting to hear. So don't worry the universities take their time.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi mel_l218, Thanks so much for replying and I know your right, it's just hard when all your friends have interviews and still waiting and of course all applications are different and I shouldn't let it get to me too much. Guess all I can do is be patient and wait on UCAS, exciting and scary times. Thanks again.

    Hi RedPanda,
    There is an article on the student room called 15 interview tips for nursing and midwifery that is worth a look and googling nursing university interview comes up with some other tips and example questions.
    Like I said in an earlier post, the universities normally supply information about the day on their website and in interview offer emails.
    I am still waiting to hear back from my university choices but I have done a lot of research and I am preparing with the hope of being offered an interview.
    I hope this helps and good luck.
