Leeds selection event

Post by catroar »

Hi everyone,
I have been invited to a selection event at Leeds uni in April. just wondered if anyone else had been to one in Leeds and could share any wisdom. All the other unis have turned me down, so really don;t want to mess up!!

A very nervous but excited Cat!! x

We have had quite a number of tutors being asked for second references for students wanting to go to Leeds so I am sure that there is more than one of you with either the same dates or similar.

Good luck and don't get too flustered.

hiya, just letting you know that the interview day at leeds for me was really relaxed! i was really nervouse before i got there then had nothing to worry about at all. the group activity was fun and the maths test was quite easy too. i would recommend revising fractions for it as there was quite a few questions on them :) godd luckwith your interview.

Hi Lauren,
Glad things went well for you. Let me know when you hear something from them! What did the group activity involve?

hi, im still waiting to hear! the group activity involed us being in 4 groups. we had a large piece of paper between us and had to discuss the skills we thought you needed as a nurse, the knowledge you need to have as a nurse and our experience. while we were doing this the staff came round to each table and discussed what we had wrote down and why. not at all as nerve wrecking as i thought it would be! hope this helps :)

Hi Lauren!

What sort of questions did they ask in the interview and how easy was the maths test?
