    Hi, is anyone going to Christchurch??

    I have an interview through clearing and was wondering if any one knows what sorts of questions come up in the 15 minute Maths test? And generally what I could do to prepare for the interview.
    At the moment I'm just reading up on the National Curriculum and educational policies. I've been revising a bit of GCSE Maths but struggling a bit!

    Thanks,

    I know from a friend that there is a teamwork element involved, so make sure you get yourself noticed.

    I doubt there will be a teamwork element in a clearing interview. The maths test is about 10 questions - all of which are word problems using a variety of all four operations. I also doubt they will dwell too much on the national curriculum, but will want to know what you know about the current education developments.

    Is it general primary you've applied for?

    edit: must state that the above is all based on my experience, none of which at Canterbury.
