Re: Degree grade calculator

Hi Ben, I assume you are intending to apply to universities that state a certain minimum that's not easily ascertained through individual transcripts (e.g. "high 2.1"). My understanding is that different universities apply different weightings to your transcript to ascertain your degree cl...

Re: Reserve lists

Hello all, and very very best of luck with lists moving and so on. I got on from being reserve number 14 for interview, so it's definitely doable. A couple of people have asked about the length of the Edinburgh list. I'm sorry to bring less great news, but the Edinburgh reserve list is notoriously ...

Re: General mental ability test - Lancaster

I'm really glad to hear that accessibility will be addressed hopefully next year. I sat the test today and I found some of the tables really difficult to read properly and I spent some time trying to actually make out the information presented in the table and typically I think my vision is not so b...

WAIS v WAIS-IV

Hi all, I have a bit of a question and hopeful someone on the forum either has the right answer or can point me in the right direction. A patient has been recently referred to our service, and last had a cognitive assessment done in the 1980s, which was the original WAIS. We have just completed his ...

Re: Learning Disability Group Work

Thanks for the replies everyone, we have another meeting for our steering group next week and the responses have been both useful and inspiring for taking groups forward in our setting. Seeing as some have experience of both community and inpatient group work - what was the specific content of the g...

Learning Disability Group Work

Hi all, I'm an assistant within a LD service, and half my post is community based, the other half inpatient. Today, we had a meeting regarding possible single community and inpatient group for adults with a learning disability. We were thinking of keeping it on the level of improving understanding -...

I graduated in July 2009 and got my first post within a NHS Mental Heath Crisis Service in the September, since then over the past ...

Re: NHS employment checks

Hi there, I'm in the exact same position right now, and I was asked by my new health board for references that covered the last 3 years. Thankfully I've been in this current position for just over 3 years so it worked out okay, but I can only imagine what a hassle it would be if you were just straig...

Re: Books available for review

My review is almost complete, just some fine-tuning etc.

I was wondering what the return address for the books was again? I can work on from my notes from here.

Thanks :)

Unfortunately I'm at work and unable to be around for the postman. But my status on the Clearing House website still says 'Pending Result'.

Re: Progress thread for Clinical Psychology applications 201

Not to speculate too much, but I have a feeling that the interview letters for Edinburgh are being received today, with 'reserve' list candidates getting their letters tomorrow. It does appear from last year that if you make it through the ranking, but are not selected, you automatically go onto the...

It is pretty tricky, nerve wracking process anyway so why waiting for the very last chance? I mean is there a reason for all this, like checking our ability to deal...
