    NHS values? Does that include the 6 C's? I've applied to Wolverhampton, Gloucestershire and Coventry. What about you?

    Hi, you can find interview advice here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5084328
    There are also sample maths tests on the link to practice. Revising multiplication, division, long multiplication, long division & converting fractions, percentages and decimals will help you.
    The literacy tests normally test your comprehension & look at spelling & grammar too. This could involve a multiple choice comprehension test and/or writing a short essay.
    It is also worth researching some of the latest news or research in nursing-you don’t need an expert on it, just looking at bbc news online will help you.
    Good luck.
