University of East London online test

Post by Chloe86 » Fri Feb 06, 2015 4:45 pm

Hi everyone

I was wondering whether anyone has received the e-mail yet with the link for the UEL online selection test? The Clearing House says early Feb but I still haven't received anything.

Hi, I attended a talk where the course admin told us that it wasn't definite that any test would be sent out! An implicit admission of disorganization or the desire to keep applicants on their toes... you decide.

That's really good to know incase they decide not to send one, it could be to do with them changing other areas of their selection process last September. I would imagine that matching test results to applications to make informed decisions for 800 applicants is actually pretty challenging!

I had some contact with UEL just before (like literally the day before) deadline for forms and they seemed to be going ahead with the online testing. Was the talk attended more recent than that?

Hi Happyfeet, no it wasn't. It was in Nov/Dec time. What did they say exactly, that it was definite or a possibility? Also if it were happening, would it happen this month?

Hi Contrarian

I just checked back on the email - it was actually at the end of November and basically said that the test would be home-based this year but they are looking into testing centres in the future so that sounds pretty definite to me. They didn't specify exactly when it would be sent out. I guess we have a few days of 'early February' left so maybe we'll hear in the next couple...

Thanks for responding :)

At a recent talk they said the test was definitely going ahead. On the website it says February to early March! Hope this helps.

Hello, I'm not sure I understand - you were asked to volunteer to take the test this year after you sat the Leicester test?

Yes exactly that! To help evaluate it as a selection process. So we get the invitations second half of feb. Not connected to any individual applications.
