    They score the questions you answer on the application objectively against a sort of mark scheme and anyone who does not score high enough gets rejected. This is probably what happened.

    I think they do this pre tests because some people have received rejections without receiving tests

    Nah, they can't. Because I submitted my application at 1am and had the tests by 8am unless HR were pulling an all-nighter? Normally they just check your uni and grades.
