Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Post by amberhog » Mon Jan 15, 2018 8:08 pm

Hi all,

I was hoping someone might be able to clarify a few things for me:

-Which tests need to be done if someone has just applied for UEL?
-------Is it just the written statistics test on the 17th of Feb?

-For the situational judgement tests which are completed online:
-------Do these include ravens matrices?
-------Is there any way of revising for these?

-For the written test on the 17th of Feb:
-------I think I read somewhere that they aren't asking anyone to write abstracts anymore... is this official? Or just a rumour?
-------Are the tests the same for UEL and Salomons?


Thanks in advance everyone!

Has anybody been invited to these tests yet? I’m getting quite nervous as the deadline for notification is Friday and I haven’t heard anything yet. I definitely meet the minimum criteria too...

Nope, not heard yet. Guess we just hang fire until after Friday.

Oh yeah, I realise my post may have been misleading. UEL have already contacted people. Surrey & Salomons haven't yet.

I received my reply from both Surrey and Christchurch this morning, ten minutes apart from each other! Although I've been invited to Christchurch selection tests, I was not accepted for Surrey which is a shame :( bit confused about it since looking at the entry criteria they pretty much the same. Can anyone enlighten me about this?

Hi Maango, I had the same feedback - invited to Salomons but not Surrey. I reviewed the criteria and thought I met all of them but it seems I haven't. It's a tricky one to figure out.

They do usually post disclaimers saying they choose their candidates independently of one another so it's possible to get picked by one not the other, but that does sound very disappointing. Maybe it's relative to other application forms for each uni? Couldn't say.

If you meet all the criteria for doing the screening test, but you've not been offered a test, then it might be worth contacting the course centre to see if it's an error. Nothing to lose.

Hi Ell,
Thanks. I followed your suggestion and sent them an email. I got a very nice email back from them. Unfortunately, it was not a mistake but knowing that is much better than wondering about it for the next week or two!

Sorry to hear that. Am glad you acted and got clarification though. Did they let you know how you didn't meet the criteria, ready for next year?

Yes, they said that I didn't sufficiently evidence how I applied psychological theories in clinical settings to meet the nine months clinical experience required. It was helpful feedback and I'll take it on board.

Surrey have different minimum requirement criteria regarding grades. They had this on the website or clearing house a while back but seem to have taken it down.

I also have been selected to take test at Salomons and not Surrey. Hope this is helpful and good luck.
