    okay thank you
    Hi again, I just finished going through all the sample tests and I have to say that they're more difficult than those I had previously done a month ago. This will be interesting

    I have finished all the tests and now been put on hold. Does this mean I havent scored high enough to pass straight away or is this the case for everyone until Jan?

    It's the same for everyone, don't worry can you remember if the layout of the online tests is the same as that of the practice samples?

    Thank you! I didnt do the practice tests so cannot confirm that sorry. If you mean what tests were in which order, It was SJT, Personality, numerical, verbal and then critical

    Hey guys!

    The NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme opened today for 2019 employment. It closes in 50 days time.


    You can see the entry requirements below, know that the scheme is 2.2 friendly!

    http://www.nhsgraduates.co.uk/applic...-requirements/

    They have opportunities within;

    Finance Management
    General Management
    Health Analysis
    Health Informatics
    Human Resources
    Policy and Strategy
    Health & Social Care

    They have a good FAQ section to cover most basic questions!

    http://www.nhsgraduates.co.uk/faqs/

    Best of luck to those that are applying! If there's anyone who has been through the process before then I'd imagine people would love to hear about your experience.

    Yes, to this thread =)

    Anybody else find it annoying that the "work experience" section is the only part in which we can elaborate?

    Hi there, I've only done the Situaional and the personality tests so far but the Situational test in the application is very similar to that included in the sample tests and it's NHS specific. The pesronality test is very long...117 questions

    Can you fail the online tests immediately or does everyone do all the tests and then they pass/ fail you, if you see what I mean?

    I think they compare everyone's scores together and from that they determine a pass/fail mark. Not 100% sure though.

    It's written in the description of the testing procedure (just before commencing the real tests) that each test has a minimum score that needs to be met, also in between tests you'll get a message saying that your score is being evaluated and if it's ok you'll be able to access the next test. As such I believe you can indeed fail straight away if your score in a test is not good enough

    Atmospheric Sciences, so very different to health, but my ultimate career goal is science policy and I previously worked in health and social care as an admin assistant funnily enough

    Yeah I did a lot of work experience in the NHS because I initially wanted to do medicine and then part of my final year classes was science policy and how it affects public healthcare so this scheme and the STP as well as faststream seem to be the ideal career path for what I'm interested in

    See, I've been interested in policy, mainly from an environmental perspective, but the strong link between environmental impacts and public health has been shown time and time again! I'm assuming you're applying for the new Health and Social Care programme?
