  • Carnival UK - Interview Day Maths Test

    I've got an interview with Carnival UK (after sending in about 3 applications to get a reply!) and I am looking forward to it apart from the maths test obviously! I haven't done any maths since November and I've been going over it recently an was just wondering is there much to worry about?

    If you are an A level Maths student or a high grade GCSE then you should have no problems at all. If Harmless Weasel can pass it - anyone can!

        Hey jake

        Just wondering when and whereabouts is it? And did you send three applications for the one intake or was it over a period of time?

          The application thing wasn't their fault, it was just one of those things. They have been brilliant with me so far and i feel very fortunate to get an interview. I was most impressed with them at the Open day at Fleetwood. I just want to make the most of it. Boydie are you talking about the bite size maths website they gave us ? Jordo my interview is on 10th Apr in Southanmpton.

            Yeah the bite size maths stuff, I don't know how much you have looked into it but it does have mock exam's which I've been going through. Most of the maths in it has only been a good reminder for me on how to solve the problems. But since I did the Scottish equivalent of a GCSE Higher maths exam ( Intermediate 2 ). Their are somethings I have never done which is in a GCSE Higher paper and not the Int 2 paper, stuff like Variation, cyclic quadrilaterals and tree diagrams, things I've never learned at school, so I'm revising stuff like that.

              I had a quick bash at the CMT one online and to be honest, if anyone can fail that then they really shouldn't be allowed out on their own....

                I'm sure you know that some cadets CMT allow into the program really shouldn't be allowed in.

                It's not my place to say just where
                the boat's allowed to go

                It's not my right to dock the boat
                or even clang the bell

                But let the damn thing
                start to sink AND SEE WHO CATCHES HELL!
