Re: Lancaster 2018

I'll be confirming with you all individually that you are happy to share your personal email with the rest of the cohort and will give that to you as a group once the 24 of you are all finalised. It makes the early chats about setting up groups and housing etc a lot easier.

Re: Lancaster Interview

Long answer taken from our website: Our selection event looks at the competencies an individual holds, not their knowledge and skills. As we [explain on our website], for a variety of reasons not all applicants are fortunate enough to have the same access to education and employment. We focus on th...

Re: Numerical Reasoning test problems

Yes, they have outstanding test-retest reliability. The evidence base is why we use them. The statistical data on the tests is freely available online.

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

It is much more complex than that. I'd suggest you look at the technical manuals which have the detail on the statistical properties of the tests and are freely available online.

Re: Numerical Reasoning test problems

Yes, tests need to be reset by the administrator. If you have emailed me then I will have done this. If you have contacted one of the programmes then email me and I'll reset the test as soon as I have a chance. Our advice not to wait until the last few days to do the tests is to try to help you avoi...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

The practice test site and live tests are on completely different systems and have different user accounts. The domains they are hosted on are also different. They are deliberately designed to look like real tests so you are used to how they are presented. Look at the address bar if you are nervous ...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

I am a bit cynical in thinking that a lot of universities might take them up as a short-listing time-saver, but equally I can see the merits of having the test. It's not a time saver really... and I should know. However it is evidence based which is why it makes sense. There is a conflict it seems ...
