Help! I've got an interview for an admin position tomorrow and the first half hour is a numeracy test. My gcse's seem a long time ago and i'm worried i won't pass. I imagine it will be basic skills?! Is it multiple choice and can I use a calculator? Any guidance would be gratefully received.
Goodness knows, could be anything! We ask prospective TAs to sit the year 6 arithmetic paper-which is a 30 minute paper so might be a good place to start. I would look at percentages and decimals in particular and without a calculator too!
If it's admin, it's likely to be the sort of things that will come up in the job.
Basic arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) will definitely be there. I wouldn't have thought long multiplication or division would be unless they provide a calculator. Percentages, decimals and probably fractions.
