Sample Numeracy and Literacy Test

Numeracy and literacy tests are no longer a requirement for entry on to our Nursing and Midwifery degrees as you already need Level 2 qualifications in Mathematics/Numeracy and English/Literacy as part of the entry requirements. 

However, numeracy testing will be ongoing throughout your Nursing or Midwifery course as you will need to use these daily in your profession so it's important to develop and maintain your skills in this area. 

Once studying with us, you're likely to be required to take regular tests using safeMedicate software to ensure you're able to do the drug calculations necessary for your profession. This software is used by many universities as well as by NHS Trusts to test qualified nurses and midwives applying for jobs.
