Hi,
Sorry to reply u late. The question that came up in the numeracy test were about multiplication, division,subtraction addition of numbers with decimals ( 0.5+1.1; 9.1x50 etc.) Also long multiplication e.g. 678×35 etc. Then there was also few questions about finding percentage of a number e.g. 30% of 150 or (for example if a dress costed £50 and has been reduced by 20% what will be the new price). There was also about sequences e.g. 2,4,6,8.

It ok. Thank you so much, will focus on those areas.

How was the literacy test? Any idea on the topic or question?
Sorry if I'm asking alot...just desperate to get a uni this year.
6. Hi Marina 92,
Just to add on the literacy test, they handed us a two page blank booklet and then read out a question to us to write an essay about it.the question was: what qualities are needed in a nurse to provide quality care. But they said that they are always changing the questions. It went very well, I passed my English and missed a pass mark on my numeracy test by 1 or 2 marks and they invited me back to retake the numeracy test but unfortunately I wasn't successful not because it was hard but I had already got an offer from my first choice so tbh my mind wasn't really focusing. Anyway I wish u nothing but the best!

On literacy just to add read about the 6Cs iam sure they will come handy next week. What they really need to know is just to find out about your spelling, sentence construction and grammar.

Also revise about rounding up the numbers e.g 23745 to a nearest 1000

Sorry for too much info but I was in your position once and I know how it feels not to know what to revise about.
