Same here! 4 questions in 45mins! That was hard to do justice... Ah well let's see how it goes :lol:

...same here...
4 questions are a lot and 45 minutes go away very very fast!
Reading the text requires also time.. or maybe it's just me... dunno... :roll:
I answered all the questions but not sure if I will reach the right percentile..(70%)
also don't understand why in one condition the scores were increasing instead of decreasing... the mild condition I think..
About methodological problems with Chi squared, i did mention the N but did not explain what the small N could cause..
..nt holding my breath either..
they told me that they will let us know in two weeks..

I feel a bit embarrassed to say what I put because I think it's wrong but hey ho... !
I said something like ...

1. you would need to assess whether there is any underlying mental health issue that may be causing the low self esteem
2. You would need to get the clients history and find out how the low self esteem developed (e.g. Any childhood abuse?)
3. Assess how the low self esteem is being maintained including thoughts and behaviour related to low self esteem

I take it we are allowed to discuss the paper now the exams are over?

hello to you all,

I was wondering, since other courses have similar tests during their interview process - how can i find past papers and/or examples to prep for the written test? I have found a couple online but it would be great if i could get some more.

Thanks in advance,

Hi all

Just bumping this thread, would anyone be interested in a livechat to go through bham written tests/general screening practice papers? I missed last years and could do with the practice if anyone else feels they would also find it helpful?

Hey,

I'd definitely be interested in going through practice papers :)

I've not heard from Birmingham yet, although a few people on my course have... hoping that no news is good news at this stage!

I’d be interested in that definitely! Not sure how much use I’ll be though - kind of mad at myself since I used to do well in stats but it’s over 5 years since I graduated now without using any stats so it basically looks like a foreign language now :lol:

Ok fab. Shall we try to set a day/time where we can get as many of us included as possible. I am ok with most evenings or this weekend?? We could go through past papers for bham and go over any general questions/thoughts??

I'd be interested in a past paper discussion too. Weekend day times or weekday evenings (except the 14th) would be good for me. I got shortlisted last year, but have had a whole year without using stats, so need to brush up a bit!
