So another enrollment question, when I get to the academics section do I do anything? It all seems kinda confusing and I don't wanna mess it up!

For the maths 'test' which is done in the first week I think do not be worried whatsoever! It's a small diagnostic maths test from a P6 maths practice book, it tests things like adding, subtracting, dividing, decimals, percentages.

The mark does not count towards anything, its basically a means of assessing the needs of the group, and will identify those that, perhaps need some remedial help with maths skills. These people will be invited to go as a group to a a few maths sessions run by the learning development centre at QUB, and they help you through everything step by step to bring you up to scratch.

It's basically in preparation for the nursing calculation exams which are done at the end of every year; these are medicine calculations ie. how many pills/ how much fluid to draw up for injections, but you don't need to worry about those.

And for the uniforms yea you pay when you get measured up for your uniform, do bring cash as you won't be able to pay by card.
I got mine too!

Im staying in Rowan Gardens! lol A friend of mine is staying in there already!

Hope its nice!

Just back from my enrollment and fitting. It was good kinda annoyed that the printer broke and we didn't get our student cards I wanted to have a wee nosy around the library on my way home. Everyone seemed really nice everyone was kinda in the same boat and didn't know many other people there. I just want to start now! It's so frustrating waiting another week!

Oh quick question, I know the booklist they give us is really long so which books have you guys found the most useful? I was thinking of having a quick look on Amazon see if there are any bargains before everyone else starts
Hi just back from my fitting and registration, kind of got it the wrong way round, well its wasnt really my fault! I arrived at the student union building and asked the girl at reception were registration was could she she me directions and she told me 2nd floor which is were i went bt that was uniform fitting so anyway got fitted went to pay and i wasnt on the list so i started to freak bt got it sorted had to rush over to the reg spot and explain why i was late but they were cool, so that was my drama bt was out before 10.30 which was great! I totally forgot to get the list of books we need, can anyone tell me where to get it?

Thanks jason for the maths info, im hopeless at decimals and percentages mths in general so i have a bit of revising to do before next week! Oh its so exciting!:smile:
