    Those of you who are worrying.

    You will still be offered a job (most of you). I applied last year and didnt get through to Assessment center. Around summer time they e-mailed everyone with job offers for band O and HO jobs.

    I myself got in this way got in this way.

    But we're you on reserve or was it a rejection and you still got offered a job later on?

    I got rejected. Was not put on reserve.
    They took on a lot of people who they rejected initially. And tbh, im 4 months into this program, its pretty good. The only down side is that in the fast stream program you are guranteed to move up to the next payscale every year, whereas I would have to rely on promotion or by applying through the tsp again.

    Saying this, theres a lot of internal vacancies opening. Hope this calms yours nerves

    I'm still invited to online test. I hadn't thought I had performed badly on the tests, but maybe not it seems!

    Think I'll just take my MacBook to the pub and refresh from there...

    I've been watching and waiting all day, it's pretty exhausting! Mine is still showing as 'Invited to online test' which by this point - and after reading everyone's comments feels futile!

    Always next year I guess, I should have done more 'revision' for the analytical test really!

    I got through to AC last year but I do think I did better on the tests last year. Some of my answers this year I threw a guess at it because it was doing my head in.

    if you get rejected, then that will be the only correspondence you will have for now. i personally had no hopes. then in summer, out of the blue, i got an email saying they wanna offer me a job.
    after i accepted it, i had to go for an interview and submit my CRB forms etc etc

    I joined with 7 others who are on the same program as me. hmrc probably recruited more people this way rather than the fast stream.

    Yeah following unsuccessful at the AC they weren't in touch for a month then they emailed offering HO in my first preference city so I accepted that. They do use the people from stage 2 for definite, and definitely those from stage 3.

    My civil service jobs application has been updated to "Invited to assessment". I'm not sure what time it updated but it must have been quite recently, it wasn't updated when I checked a few hours ago (when some other people on here had heard back). It might be worth another check if you haven't been on in a while!

    Congratulations to the others who got through, and good luck if you haven't heard anything yet.

    There is one hope folks. Last year the TSP offers were mixed up with rejections and all that so it could just be the batches they've created.

    I am now more nervous about how I am going to walk round to my car (20mins walk) in the gale force winds and the amber warning rain
