Why it's a good idea to take the test...

Numeracy skills are crucial when working out what dosage to give patients. Some research states that over half of medication errors occur because of choice of dose.

Research commissioned by Department of Health and Social Care has found that medication errors cost the NHS £1.6bn every year.

They estimate that these ‘may cause around 1,700 death and contribute to up to 22,000 deaths’ every year.

Although most NHS prescriptions are safely dispensed, there are around 237 million drug errors every year, which can occur anywhere in prescribing, dispensing, administering and monitoring.

What our customers say

"I used SN@P before taking my pre-registration nursing course entry exam at UCLAN. They also used SN@P for the assessment, so I knew what to expect. Without a doubt I would not have passed if I'd not used the education resources and practice tests."
"I almost didn't apply for a course as I was afraid I'd fail the numeracy entry test. Following the initial assessment the platform told me what I needed to work on and assigned me resources. I passed!!"
"I’ve never really been that confident with numbers. Sn@p really helped me as it allowed me to access the resources and work at my own pace. I don't think I would have got through my second year numeracy exam without it.”
