Mature Nursing Midwifery Test Preparation course

Preparation programme contents

This preparation programme is in modular format and covers in detail the three obligatory, competitive computer-based assessments.

Introduction and Guidelines

This is an important module, as it will help provide the basis of your preparation for the online assessment. We will assist you in understanding the qualities that the selection panel are looking for and how they are assessed in the competition as a means of selection.

Module I: General Aptitude Tests

It may be some time since you attempted a similar test, so in this module there are a number of general set tests to help to get you into the right frame of mind. This module will also provide you with valuable practice for the test. Like all examinations there are techniques that that can be used to optimise your performance. This module is designed to demonstrate these techniques and to assist you to understand and apply them.

Module 2: Sample test

This module consists of two sample tests so that you may simulate examination conditions at home to practise coping with real life pressures of time constraints and other factors. This module also consists of a number of examples for each element of the test before you attempt the actual sample test:

  • Paper 1 Verbal test
  • Paper 2 Numerical test
  • Paper 3 Job Simulation

A separate booklet is also enclosed giving answers to all questions relating to modules 1 and 2.
