    Hey no worries.
    Ok so had my interview today. The maths test was SOLID.. I struggled really bad.. horrific. The english test is a comprehension piece with 4 questions, not too bad. Both last 20 mins

    Then a short personal interview with 5/6 questions.. the universal questions. (why nursing? current issues that affect children) I said social media etc cyber bullying. There is a scenario question. WHY should we give you a place..

    Well. I must have done OK as I got offered a place earlier this evening so same day reply! They want those places filled fast

    GOOD LUCK

    Oh god, maths isn’t my strong point, like at all. I’ve been preparing for the general questions, hopefully my answers will be good enough! I’m doing mental health nursing though so I best look up current mental health issues! Thanks for the heads up! I hope I hear as quick as you did, I’m back at work next Friday and hoping to let them know I’ll be switching to bank shifts! I’ve already got a degree in psychology and 4 years experience in care, if I don’t get a place then there’s something wrong with me that I’m not aware of 😂🤷🏻*♀️

    Sorry it’s cos I’m jumping on posts - I’m doing mental health nursing. The interview wasn’t too bad. We didn’t have a group interview, I’m guessing that’s cos it’s a different pathway. The maths test was alright, coming from someone who can’t do maths 🙈 then the English test was more a scenario test, with ‘what would you do/how/why’ kind of questions. Interview itself was 5 questions long, why do you want to be a nurse, what attracted you to Salford, that kind of thing. I found out today I have a place starting in jan. Good luck for yours!

    Hi! I have my interview at Salford on the 30th Nov for adult nursing, just looking for some general information about what to expect, especially the maths side! Are there any particular areas I should be revising? Obviously I’ve been looking at general mathematics but it’s really not my strong point at all x

    @_mk interview first and then they assess how you’ve done and offer a conditional or unconditional place after that if you’re successful x
