Congrats those with interviews for Salomons! Did anyone else notice that the interview schedule they attached implies they're only interviewing 29 people? Surely that can't be right! :?

I thought that last night! But I assume that it means that there are 3 panels going alongside each other. So at any time there are three candidate 1s three candidate 2s etc. Because it still says on the website that they were hoping to invite 118 people. Either that or they’ve MASSIVELY cut the number of places :/

Congrats on the interview :)

Does anyone know when Surrey will send out letters/e-mails? Been way longer than expected!

Some people received interview invites via email for Surrey this morning. Not sure whether they send out emails in batches.

Rejection email from Surrey - best of luck to everyone else waiting to hear from them.

Have UEL contacted anyone yet? Or does anyone know the date they'll let us know? :|

Hi SamH

UEL wrote on that blurb on the coloured sheet they gave us on the day of the test that they would email ON March 16th (not by), so I think they are waiting until the last day. If it comes in sooner: happy days, but no need to hit the refresh button where they're concerned as they haven't given us any reason to think it'll come sooner.

Oh thanks! I missed that in all the fuss and panic! :oops: That'll save me checking my emails!

Hi everyone,

I have applied for UEL this year and I was wondering if you could tell me what the pre-selection tests were last year? I've gathered from this thread that there was a section on research methods - was it stats or which type of study to use or both?
Additionally do you complete the tests in person or online?

Thanks

I would really appreciate any advice on the MCQ and written tests also. Does anyone have any good links to resources to revise the material. I saw a book recommended on this forum 'How to Design and Report Experiments by Andy Field and Graham Hole'. But this was quite a while ago so not sure if this is still the most up to date resource.

There are some past papers online but these seem to be dated 2012-2016. Have the tests changed in format since then?

The test last year (2018 entry) was all MCQ’s with no written tasks - I think there is an example on the Salomon, Surrey or UEL site. I found the test extremely hard last year so this year I’m using the book you mentioned and ‘Discovering Statistics Using SPSS’ by Andy Field and ‘Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology’ by Hugh coolican.

Does anyone know when we might hear from Surrey with an invitation to sit the tests? It seems from previous years not much notice is given?

Yeah I don’t think there’s much notice but if you think you meet the minimum criteria keep the day free and get revising! It’s weird to revise when you don’t even know for sure you’re sitting the test but I’m starting to prep now
