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?
Yeah I am looking at DHSC but because that's more government and less frontline policy, I'm torn between that, general management and policy and strategy. So, I'm still weighing those three up.
Yeah environmental is becoming so much more prominent in global health issues, like the recent Monsanto case in the USA but also, with trends of diet and pollution in UK affecting public health issues and therefore, spending

I am just wondering if anyone has completed the numerical reasoning stage of the application, and how difficult it is? Is it similar to the practice CAPP test linked on the website?

Thanks for any help!

Maths is not my strong point and I was dreading it but found it quite easy. Its GCSE level and probably at the lower end, so grade C. I quickly ran through the GCSE BBC Bitesize fractions and percentages section to refresh my memory and that helped. Good luck 😊

CAPP tests can be quite easy. If it seems easy so the first question is basic addition etc be very careful with the answer you click.

They do it on purpose. Say your answer is 10300 they might have 103000, 10300, 1030 etc and if you're rushing you're likely to pick the wrong one.

Hey SunTiger, absolutely, below are the relevant links you’re looking for:

1) Specific NHS graduates website link to where you find the practice tests (scroll down to section ‘online tests’):

http://www.nhsgraduates.co.uk/applic...ation-process/

2) Links to each specific practice test, except personality profiler:

A - Situational Judgement - http://practice.cappassessments.com/Sst/Sst.html
B - Verbal Reasoning - http://practice.cappassessments.com/Vrt/VrtPage.html
C - Numerical Reasoning - http://practice.cappassessments.com/Nrt/NrtPage.html
D - Critical Reasoning - http://practice.cappassessments.com/Crt/CrtPage.html

Hope these help!

So as I prepare to do my last sets of test, it turns out that the timer began from 59:22 minutes ...

Obviously, something is a bit wrong here, so I gave them a ring and hopefully it'll be sorted as soon as really.

Not in that much of a rush, just glad I didn't leave this closer to the deadline!

So did you stop and called them or took the test anyway and call them about it afterwards? What did they tell you?

If we get put on hold after completing all the assessments, does that mean that we’ve met the minimum pass mark for each of the tests? Or is it the case that everyone is put on hold regardless of initial results?

I believe if someone doesn't achieve the minimum marks on any given test they won't be able to continue with the application. At least this is what it looks like by reading the explanation before starting the tests and it also appears at the completion of each test
