Hi all, just to say UEL have sent out test 3: Ravens Advanced Progressive Matrices, so check your emails as I know some people didn't receive test 1/2 :)

Sweet Jesus, wish I hadn't received test number 3. That was impossible! I didn't even finish before the timer ran out. Suspect I may have just blown my chances at a UEL interview.

Feeling a little jaded and sceptical. How is pattern recognition supposed to determine who'll make a good trainee?!

Yep the third test was pretty tough to say the least. I found many of them impossible to be sure of so a lot of mine were guesses towards the end. I reckon most people will be in the same boat though so we will just have to wait and see.

I too find it difficult to see how useful the matrix test can be for short listing clinical trainees. :? I think the other two had far more relevance!

Flexibility of thinking? Performance under pressure? Adaptability?

I know, I was being annoyed and irrational because I hadn't done very well. I can see the value of using it, it just frustrates me that there's a need for it, and I didn't do very well at it.

No point preseverating right? The next few weeks while we all wait to hear back are going to seem loooooong.

I'm finding it so difficult to commit to completing the final two tests!

That they call it Talent Lens and that I have never been invited to an interview to UEL makes me think that I am not talented. :roll: About to take the second test now...
