Re: Grade classification for application

Hi, This is something I have tirelessly tried to gather information on. Long story short, it's different between institutions. My degree was 4 years long; some universities calculated years 2, 3, and 4, some only looked at the final year, some looked at years 2 and 4, etc. Best advice is to contact ...

Re: Research Exam Help

Hey! Sorry to hear you're feeling anxious about this. Solomons, as I'm sure you know have plenty of past practice examinations for you to take a look at. You might also revisit some of the texts you covered within the first and second years of university on research and stats- interpreting results, ...

Re: Online Selection Tests

So there's no online-pre selection test? I remember in the past it was an online pre-selection AND another pre-selection test on the day of the interview. They trialled that (I can't remember if it was last year or the year before?) but it wasn't a helpful approach, so it returned to just a test on...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Got a distinction in my MSc, which I managed to execute whilst holding a full-time job. Whilst also trying to give myself a pat on the back and take a step and recognise that I have accomplished some thing, I can't help but have this niggling fatalistic voice in the back of my head telling me it ...

Online Selection Tests

Happy Wednesday, all! I've searched the forum and have been unable to find a thread on this; please forgive if there has already been a discussion. It's going to be difficult for me to get back to the UK for selection tests, so I was wondering if anyone had put together a list of courses which have ...

Re: Assistant Psychologist - UK or abroad?

Hi, I'm a Clinical Research Coordinator working on a study that looks at cognitive remediation within the context of first-episode psychosis. The role of an assistant psychologist doesn't really exist out here, so a CRC position is probably the closest you're going to get- I'm primarly involved with...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I feel like I'm ruminating a little more on insignificant details. I referred to the head of the department without the title of "Dr" in an email and I was abruptly called out by my PI. I don't know why, but it bothered me for days after. 2. I think 6 years working within an academic setting has ...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Feeling pretty down about this, but oh well. Definitely feeling burned-out with full-time work and overwhelmed with impending MSc exams next week, so the 4 rejections didn't help. Trying to maintain a positive outlook and engage in self-care :D Bangor Glasgow Oxford Leicester Good luck in interviews...

Re: 2018 Doctorate Application Progress thread

Bangor Leicester Glasgow Oxford Little disappointed- I called Bangor for feedback and found out that the final decision to not interview was based on the ranked score of my final year grade average. Whilst acknowledging the incredibly high caliber of other applicants, and the need for such methods ...

Realising that I probably won't be able to make the selection tests as I'm currently in the US. Sigh.

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I'm so incredibly fraught with indecision. I've been living in the US for the past 4 years, and had the "conversation" with my girlfriend about what will happen when my visa expires. The holy grail has been CP training in the UK, but now a move back seems more and more harder. 2. Recruitment goal...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

3. Found out I gained a place on an MSc which I'll hopefully be doing alongside working full-time. It'll be difficult but worth it. Well done! I'll be embarking on an MSc and working full time too. You going to be doing your course PT then? I'm unsure! I'm doing the distance learning MSc in Mental ...

Working with clients in the community

I hope this is the appropriate place to post this- apologies if not! I work as a research assistant on a RCT examining cognitive remediation in first-episode psychosis. Much of my work involves meeting clients in their homes, assisted board & care, and in the community. So I met with a participant i...

Re: Undergraduate stats help

Kent grad here. Don't worry, stats in the the first year was probably as difficult as it gets! I struggled pretty significantly and ended up with 39% in the exam :/, but a 2:1 in that module. Year 2 was all based on SPSS and the exams were fairly straight forward. You'll do fine :) Just keep up with...
