Re: Numerical reasoning tests - calculator?

You can use calculators for these tests. I assume you used a calculator when you did them for the screening! They are not a test of your ability to do mathematics, they are a test of how you conceptualise the information and understand how to transform it. You can take notes on how to do mathematics...

Re: Rejected from interview due to references. Thoughts...?

Just to be clear, referees do not have to consent for you to be given a copy of a reference they have provided. You are legally able to request this and they are obliged to provide it if they hold it.

Re: Rejected from interview due to references. Thoughts...?

Courses have the right to use facutal information on references to make decisions on applications. You have a legal right (enforcable via legal action) for information provided about you to be factual and accurate just as you have the right to obtain a copy of information held by programmes about yo...

Re: Scrambled Eggs

We would not be worried about a trainee living in the EU at the point of application. We've taken EU citizens onto the programme previously direct from their home country and interview several each year. We also regularly choose trainees with no NHS experience over those with that experience because...

Re: Exeter selection tests

Hi there, None of the screening invitations from the testing system have been sent out - they will go on Monday morning. Plymouth have sent out a pre-testing email letting people know to expect that email invitation from SHL. If you haven't had an invitation on Monday, drop me an email and I can che...

Re: Experience/Application Advice

To reiterate all my posts on the subject, the expectations of different courses in terms of access to 'experience' vary hugely and start at none at all. People do not need clinical experience, postgraduate training, published papers, or experience in research to get a place on a DClinPsy. I'd look ...

Re: NHS Lease Cars - While Training

You'd probably be better looking at the trust websites for the appropriate employing trusts rather than the universities - they are the ones that will be running the schemes. For example the Lancashire Care FT site says their scheme is run via GMP (https://gmpdrivercare.com).

Re: Part time training

Until we have finalised the details with the university and stakeholders, I can't give precise details. However, it will be a set FTE which can be compressed into a short number of days per week to allow for portfolio working or spread out over a full week to allow for reduced hours per day. The ful...

Re: Part time training

For those not aware, Lancaster will be offering a formalised part time route commencing in 2020. Although we currently support trainees in flexible working, we feel that the dedicated route will provide a structure that gives people taking this option more support. Our hope is that it will also enco...

Re: European citizens

You will get a contract to sign from your employing trust. The university doesn't pay your wages so it's understandable that they would be vague in this area.
