Applying for Scientist Trainee Programme 2020 Watch
I am student going to my final year undergraduate doing biomedical science (biochemistry) and I’m interested in applying for the 2020 NHS STP programme. I hear it’s very competitive and difficult to get into so if anyone that is towards this trainee program or gone through that already could help. I would very much appreciate it. If you could give little advise being on successful and any tips especially on the aptitude tests which ones might it entail and how to prepare for it please.
I’m interested in the clinical biochemistry route. If anyone can help please let me know ✌🏽
I'm also in a similar position to you. Although I haven't been through the process of applying yet, I would recommend that you look at the entry requirements on the NHS STP website and make sure you meet them. For example for genomic counseling, you need the equivalent of 6 months full-time experience in a care setting and need to have done a genetics module.
Also, they have recommended this for practicing for the aptitude tests- https://www.trytalentq.com/
Maybe google some numerical and logical tests as well and practice some basic mental maths too.
Thank you Demi
