2 things - 1) you'll find out shortly its 2 role-playing exercises for DS, rather than any interview or current affairs testing. FCO doesn't seem to mind if you know nothing at all about international affairs, so long as you have top-drawer management skills

found out today that i have interview for DS, did anyone else here anything today?
obviously very happy with that, but would happily take HoP/Central if don't get any further
im assuming if i take interview n am unsuccesful my chances of having the specific role i want in other departments is not diminished due to late timing? i may have to ring them and check
2) officially it won't harm your chances as you should be slotted in at the level of your score in the 'general classification', so to speak. However, posts on here would indicate in practice you might have a bit of a problem (see, e.g. Serafina (?)) of a few days past. Parity told me it wouldn't jeopardize my chances if I went to the FSB, but I think that was just a general reassurance as unfortunately, for the EFS (which I'm aiming at), even those of us who passed the FSAC aren't guaranteed a job at the end of it (unlike the GFS, where unsuccessful HoP and DS candidates are guaranteed CD).
EDIT: obvs, congratulations as well.
Out of interest, when is your FSB?

I can't check my application page until later on today as I can't access it through my phone for some reason
EDIT: Nothing yet on the DS
