At the end of the day, the selectors can use maths A level as a criteria without too much of a fuss - and so turning a blind eye to the potential for it to be rather exclusive (I think... I'm coming up with lots of words today and using them in contexts that I am reeeally not sure are correct - it ...

Not meaning to be horrible Ben, but if you were in Cinderella you'd be saying "shoe size is no way to award the monarchy" - this seemingly arbitrary criterion shows the kind of person they want (in this case someone who likes maths and is good at it, enough to have chosen to do it before this job w...

It doesn't bother me too much, It just makes me consider doing a Maths A level evening class for a year and get it over and done with; or apply to AP posts w/out maths - or whatever. I considered doing it at 16 - it was a toss-up between maths or physics - I chose physics ("Oh if only I could go bac...

Go for it Mr Ben! They might consider you for the non-researchy post without the maths A-level. Perhaps if you can quote some particularly good stats marks on your application? It would be cool if you got one of the jobs, and I got the other - we could work together! Oh my god - that would be prett...

Is it really that different that putting a Masters as required? Yes, I think it is - for the reason that El gives: Maths/Stats a-level is not a requirement for Clin Psy, so why should it be a requirement for someting that is a level lower? Yes there's a strong stats element, but even so... One of t...

Oh El, they're at it again - another AP post from OBMH asking for people to have A level Mathematics or Statistics! I know they have to narrow down the competition, but is this fair? I did A levels.... 10 years ago - I wanted to be a Vet then and didn't need Mathematics! Just opening a (probably tal...

I almost went in for lazer eye surgery, but was told by an eye surgeon that the procedure destroys the 'Bowman's membrane' of the eye. Apparently they don't really know what the Bowman's membrane does - my surgeon pointed out that, just because you don't know it's function, doesn't mean it doesn't d...

as far as I can remember if it was: Clinical Psychologists' information. Then yes to apostrophes. That is an odd sentence though :lol: but if its information for clinical psychologists. Then no. Hmm, yeeeh...but it's written as the first sentence, so surely, grammatically speaking, it should be s, ...

No apostrophe at all. Are you sure? (I am fine to be proven wrong). Just I thought an apostrophe was needed to denote posession So, if only the section was for only one clinical psycholigist - CP, it would be Qualified CP's area (with apostrophe to denote ownership). But because it is for lots of P...

I just noticed for the first time that the tagline (or whatever you may call such a thing) underneath the clin psych logo is 'information for aspiring clinical psychologists'. Perhaps the aim of the website needs to be changed if a section for clin psychs is used? Just a thought. I think it could b...

Re: LI Application Form

Stop being so hard on yourself and chill. It can take people aaaaages to get their first AP post - regardless of your grades and in terms of getting a post, you've only just graduated. You clearly are already academic enough for an AP post, just not got enough experience or enough experience writing...

That's great!!!! :D

There's been a facebook group set up, I'll let them all know on there. They are all Berkshire people I think!!

Could you ask a mod to update the details on the psychologist assistant listing on here?

Cheers!
