    Did my tests today. Now im terrified that I have to wait so long! Seems as though a lot of people are getting through, though. How did everyone find the tests? Because I found them VERY hard.

    Anyway, just for some peace of mind: if I am rejected, will I be notified? Or do they just not send you an e-mail telling you that you passed the first stage?

    I emailed and they responded

    They are marking the results incrementally so it is possible some may have heard already. However you should receive the outcome by the end of this week at the latest.

    Clearly they're working backwards as I did mine 3 weeks ago

    I think most people found them difficult, I know I did. You probably won't have as long to wait. I think initially they were waiting for more people to do the test to issue a pass mark. But I could be wrong

    Has anyone taken the e-tray exercises yet? From the website, it appears that the format has changed from last year. Would be interested in hearing people's thoughts once they do it.

    Annoyed I didn't put down the Digital stream as my 4th choice. Any one have any idea whether I can add another choice post application?

    I may be wrong but I'm pretty certain that once the application is in, that's it. I would try to call them tomorrow morning though! Worth a try.

    Mine came through at 16.24. It could just be they ran out of time before end of play.

    Decided to do the tests today. Did anyone else find the behaviour one tricky? I found that i didn't want to put least "least like me" and "disagree" for a lot of them. Will update you guys if and when i unlock the E tray.
    I found the same thing. But the comments at the start were you shoud have one of the disagree options ideally so i found myself picking slightly disagree on most and tried to remain consistent. Obviously did the trick.

    No, I also found it pretty challenging. I guess the key is to be consistent with your answers and hope for the best lol. But no one has said they've been rejected yet so I feel like they're pushing everyone through.

    And I believe the FS will tell you if you've been successful or not.

    Can someone help me out?

    I did the situational judgement test and found out pretty quickly but I can't find the behavioural judgement test anywhere

    I was never asked to sit the second one. I have reasonable adjustments and this year I am applying internally. I assumed it was an internal thing but guessing it's the former.
