Cognitive assessments for people with visual impairments

Hi I was wondering if anyone knows of any assessment tools or papers regarding measuring IQ for people with visual impairments. I am trying to complete a cognitive assessment and a bit stuck on what to do really. The person I'm working with has a severe sight impairment thus ruling out any of the pe...

Re: UCL 2010 reserve places movement

Congratulations Dan!!! Thanks for updating about your offer...good to know that the reserve list has moved 2 places at least! You're right, there's still quite a few unis that haven't interviewed and most of them seem to be London courses so the list may move a bit more yet, guess we'll see if it mo...

Re: UCL 2010 reserve places movement

Sounds encouraging that lists have moved previously. Dan - that would be great if you could update if you get offered a place. At least I will know that I'm one place higher! Unfortunately I'm not as high up as you, I'm 9th so the reserve list will need to move a fair bit for me to get an offer but ...

Re: UCL 2010 reserve places movement

Thanks for the replies...nice to know that the reserve list does move. Fingers crossed that it does! When I given feedback the chairperson of the interview did say that he had known the list to really move some years, especially after IoP interviews.

Re: UCL 2010 reserve places movement

Thanks for the reply Borrowed Cone. I didn't think that there would be much movement but wanted to hear other peoples thoughts or info that they might have heard or their experience of UCL's reserve place movement. I know it's good to be put on the reserve list but it also makes you cling to the hop...

Re: MSc Value vs Expenditure

Just to add, I think Ell is right, a MSc is what you make of it. I think one of the most important things is that you really want to do it and are interested in the course you are on. My MSc was a pretty intense year and if I hadn't enjoyed it then I think I would have really struggled, that's not t...

Re: MSc Savings Expenditure

Hi Thought I would share my experience of MSc on this post. I completed a MSc in research methods straight after finishing my undergraduate degree. I chose to undertake the course for a number of reasons: - like Elizabeth I thought it would help to improve my employability, as it would make me a bit...

I've also got the same dilemma...leaving my post soon and wanted to get something for my supervisor as she has been great. Would it be appropriate to buy a piece of jewellery (i.e. necklace) for her? But I'm definitely biscuits for the team but the tea/coffee hamper sounds a great idea, so I may als...

Hey...just thought i would add my thoughts to this. Samsol - I think I was in a similar position to you this time last time. I started a new AP post and found it difficult at first - there was already an established friendship amongst the APs and they seemed to be quite 'cliquey' at times. However I...
