    congrats on being shortlisted nursing4eva.My kings selection day on Thursday of this week went well i think. We had a group discussion then after that we had our individual interviews.I wouldnt say it was hard you just need to prepare yourself and do ur research well enough and u should be fine.I just have to wait and see if i get a place now.Also you know that you also have to do some tests as well just English and Maths that are timed.:yes:

    Hello

    I've applied to york, UEA, Nottingham. Worcester and sheffield hallam to do childrens nursing.

    I recieved a letter from york ( which is my favourite) today saying i won't find out till february/march whether i got an interview or not, and interviews aren't till april. im on my gap year and im going to work in a pediatric ward in march in Romania for 2 months so wont be around for interviews so annoying! i emailed her and asked if i could have another date if i was succesful but she said they dont do any other ones! is anyone else in the same position?

    I know yeah, I was so confused.
    But there is a girl on another thread who had her i'nteview' thing last week and its quite informal.

    They want you to ask questions, Tell you eveything you need to know, Accomodation tours ect. But she also said, they decide whether you have a place based on your Ucas application, and that this 'inteview' is for your benefit only. Your Ucas is placed infront of a panel of people, and its based on how well your PS is ect.

    Hope this clears some things up, I hope I'm right lol

    Are you travelling from afar?
    Have you applied for January or September 2010 intake?

    Ive already done my A Levels, im 20
    I did Psychology and English Language and Literature, got C's in both.

    When it comes to sending UCAS apps off, college tutors are useless! A swift kick up the bum should get her to send it off!

    I'll let you know how it goes im dreading the presentation thin though

    it wasn't an interview as such.
    all they did was gave u a presentation on what the course is like and stuff like that... and then u got split up into two groups and u just had a group decussion where they just asked u if you have any experience and what made you want to become a nurse.

    The women that was talking to us was saying that they now have panels of people that decided whether you do the course all on your ucas stuff. The people that did the selection day dont have any imput on the panel unless they have serious concerns about you.

    It was really relaxed and easy day to be honest and we were only the for an hour and a half.
    Is this for coventry uni?
    is there an individual interview or just a group discussion? xx
