UEL New Process

Hi All, I've tried to find info about this for ages for a while on the forum and haven't been able to, so forgive me if this has already been answered. I realise it's also "out of season" - I didn't apply this year so I'm very much out of the loop! I know UEL changed their criteria this year, to sta...

Re: Reflections from shortlisting 2013

Re: UEL applicants

Yep thats what I heard - that they are potentially thinking of using it as a selection test in the future, but this year i think they want to see how the results of the test relate to the people they would usually pick for interview.

Re: Clearing House REALLY messing me around.. anyone else??

Hi FreudianSlap, Considering this was my first time application and I never really used to come on this forum either (this was probably one of my first posts)...

Re: Surrey/ Salomons Selection Exam

Geographically the uni should be fine from floods, I'm pretty sure it's on top of a hill. But other parts of guildford and very low lying and have been really flooded recently - so it will be making sure you allow enough time to get there that will be the issue. Good Luck everyone!

Re: Written task before Trainee PWP interview

I did one of these before... and it was a vignette. So it was some information (maybe a referral, or an after assessment type letter) and they wanted you to write a letter to the service user using the information.
