Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

You don't have to do them on the same day - although you don't have many days left.

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 ...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

You won't be surprised to know that the typical clinical psychology applicant has better verbal reasoning than numerical reasoning. The practice tests are not an accurate measure of the difficulty of the live tests. They are just designed to give you an idea of the type of questions used and the int...

Re: Applying to two courses with the same shortlisting test

You just do the tests once - you will only get one test invitation. You don't need to inform us - we already know :D

Re: Selection tests for Coventry/Leicester/Staffordshire

Does anyone know what Leicester are doing this year? I assumed it would be verbal and numerical reasoning but since they have a specific date I’m wondering if they’ve changed too this year? They have indeed changed - I don't know the detail of their tests this year though I'm afraid. You seem very ...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

It's important to regonise our own privilege, often well hidden from our own perspectives.

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

Programmes should certainly be more transparent and communicative in explaining their selections procedures and it would be good practice to confirm selection processes prior to the application window closing. However, the complexities of running an externally funded programme with students who are ...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

I've been an Assistant Psychologist for nearly three years and been part of many AP groups and worked alongside lots of other AP's and I'm yet to meet an assistant psychologist who is not bright or who would not be capable of completing the academic demands. This goes to the heart of the issue of e...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

I'm struggling to understand how the GMA score alone offers a comprehensive assessment of whether you will be a good clinical psychologist. It isn't intended to offer a comprehensive assessment of whether you will be a good clinical psychologist. That is why courses interview afterwards. Ensuring c...

Re: Selection tests for Coventry/Leicester/Staffordshire

I've received both invitations from Lancaster and Staffordshire courses. As Staffordshire has also the GMA screening test this year, I'm wondering... do we need to complete the GMA test twice then?? :bom: Thanks! Nope, just once. The results then go to both course centres. You'll just get one invit...

Re: Selection tests for Coventry/Leicester/Staffordshire

Staffs are still in process with their candidates - you will have a 2 week window (the same window as Lancaster) to complete their tests online so I don't think this should be a big issue work wise.
