Critiquing articles

Post by stratfmg » Wed Aug 09, 2017 7:08 pm

Hi everyone,
Apologies in advance if this has been covered on another thread! I was just wondering if anybody had any preparation tips when applying for courses that have screening tests. Tests are not my strong point and, despite preparing quite a bit, I have never got anywhere..I was really disappointed this year as I really liked the ethos of the Staffordshire Course but wasn't shortlisted for interview; I spoke to someone (I know I cant generalize!) who was successful this year and they outlined what they had written in the assessment; I lot of the things they had mentioned I had too, which is even more frustrating!
Anyway, if anyone has any tips or reading that may help me I would really appreciate it!

Thank you:)

We've got quite a few archived livechat discussions on critiquing articles that might be worth a read.
