    I applied for the Sky Bet Sports Trader Scheme and got an e-mail back on Tuesday asking me to sit the Online Tests. Still doing some brushing up on the numerical side of things! Believe you get 7 days to sit them. Looking to sit them Sunday.

    If anyone has done the numerical test for Sky, it would be helpful if you could tell me (us) how many questions and how many minutes you have to complete it? Currently been struggling on the SHL ones- just managed to only answer 24/39 in 47 mins, and only got 11 right which is really disgraceful. Its a shame as I think I will do well on the verbal reasoning (got 94% first time on SHL) and on the rest of the scheme tests (interview etc) if I get through but seems the numerical could prove the test that stops me from getting any further in the process.

    I cant remember, but i think the sky ones were just the standard SHL tests, i think they are just over half an hour - something like that anyway.

    Thanks for your reply, obviously they are slow at going through these applications. Best of luck for the online tests.

    Yuo might not have flunked them, the pass rates for those tests are usualy quite low (quite often about 50% of people pass)

    I applied back in October and had a telephone interview in November. Still hadn't heard anything so I dropped them an email. Today I have received two replies, one saying that they're still considering my application. And another saying that I've been successful and been invited to an assessment centre. I applied for the Technology Graduate Programme. Anyone else been invited to one?
