University of Hertfordshire physician associate interview

Has anyone been to the university of Hertfordshire assessment for the physician associate MSc? I got an invite saying it's a written reasoning skills assessment and group activities. I'm not too worried about the activities but nervous about the reasoning skills assessment - can anyone share any thoughts on their experience? Any advice on how to prepare? Thanks 🙏🏼

They said u can't really prepare which is true. I've never been to this kind of interview before even tho I've done medicine interviews too! So it's a new experience

Hi, I'd like to ask how many interview stages there are for the PA course. I applied through UCAS in January would you be able to know roughly when they would conduct interviews in March? Or February too?

Check your ucas sometimes they don’t send emails of confirmation . The written exams are on Monday so I’m assuming everyone should have gotten replies

There’s two stages, the interviews are Feb-April I believe as they take people in batches for these recruitment stages
