    I had an interview for adult last year, i'm starting in September this year as I had to defer. It was the most relaxed interview I went to! The exam is first, and lasts an hour, the english section was easy, just explaining the qualities of a nurse. The maths was a bit harder but if you look at the practice tests beforehand, and learn how to calculate percentages etc, it's pretty basic.
    Next, the group task, I was put into a group of about 6 people, each group was given a photograph of a scene in a nursing environment and we had to work together to figure out what it was showing, what caring skills were being used etc. So essentially you need to piece together the scenario and feed back to the lecturers and other groups.
    I was really nervous about the individual interview, but honestly, the exam was the worst part of the whole few hours. I was interviewed by two women ( who were both very lovely ) They asked me a few questions about myself, as in why I would like to be a nurse, examples of where I have shown compassionate qualities. Then they gave me a scenario, and I had to explain what I would do in detail and relate back to my own experience.
    My main advice would be to look keen, although I was nervous, I asked several questions in my individual interview which stemmed greater conversation, and I feel as though it helped the lecturers to see more in me than if i were to have just stuck to what they asked me. I actually enjoyed this interview process, and I received an offer only 3 hours later! I hope thus helps, good luck!

    Hi! I have an interview for adult nursing next week, I'm a little worried about the English exam most and I have been practising what the uni sent to me and creating different scenarios of the question. When you did your interview and the question was on qualities of a nurse, was your practise question they sent you similar to the one in the exam?
