    They have said the results are being processed in batches, and in no particular order. Hopefully we can take their word on that (I'm still invited on to online tests).

    Maybe they have a Commodore 64 in the office, slowly processing the results as we speak.
    They need to upgrade to a Commodore Amiga and get a move on then

    Quite right. I remember being ecstatic getting an Amiga 600 to replace my ZX Spectrum when I was in high school. It didn't have the Dizzy collection though...

    Am also a graduate in his thirties who is applying

    I completed Fantasy World Dizzy, but it took many, many hours to find all the hidden coins. Much harder than the analytical test. Treasure Island Dizzy only gave you one life though.

    Good to see many other mature graduates here. Maybe if we get through we won't feel like we are 100 years old at the assessment centre! Assuming the Commodore mainframe holds steady!

    If you think that took hours.. Watch out for fallout 4. Already sunk over 72 hours into that bad boy!

    I've just been changed to online test completed, which is what it said when I got dropped at this stage last year.

    For anyone wondering when the O and HO offers started going to the reserve list; mine was March last year.
    I am on reserve list for AC. does that mean i will be offered a O/EO role?

    Why does everyone think online test completed means failed? It states they are reviewing the results. Just because one or two people with this status failed last year it doesn't mean everyone will. It doesn't state unsuccessful anywhere. Am i missing something?

    Agreed. I've just looked through last year's thread, and 15th-17th January there were people posting passes, rejections and being put on the reserve list on each day.

    Mine changed to 'online tests completed' earlier today, I am praying it just means that just means the tests have been downloaded. I've asked for confirmation again on Facebook that the results are sent out in no particular order and they have confirmed that this is the case.

    I couldn't see anyone making any reference to 'online tests completed' on last year's thread, so I don't think that this necessarily means we have failed!

    Well done to everyone through so far though

    I've been trawling through the thread from last year and one person wrote the following (much later on in the process). It seems that they had 'online test completed' but were still invited to the assessment centre. Hope it helps!

    Anyone on the reserves status changed to online test completed from pending? That was my status before the invite to the ac.

    Hi,
    I am now very confused- my status went to online test completed & from reading these posts I thought I had been rejected??? Is this not the case? I told family I had failed & went for rejection drinks last night😳.
    Can anyone clarify??

    it says application in reserve on the portal, unless this means something else.

    Don't tell your family until you know for sure.

    In regards to the status, nobody here can clarify anything I'm afraid.

    The best thibg to do is wait 48 hours until we all know for sure.

    Good Luck everyone!

    Someone asked that question on the FB page and has not received a reply which implies HMRC have little idea what CS HR are doing. Just hold tight until you eventually get an email confirming one way or another. Rubbish way to treat us though...

    Yesterday morning my application status changed to Invited for Assessment. Later on that afternoon it changed again to Online test completed. Surely they can't have changed the result, so I wouldn't be too disheartened if you only saw your status change to the latter.

    Good luck everyone; hopefully we'll find out definitively soon.

    Still 'Invited to online test'... this is getting pretty annoying now. Anybody had any successful results today yet?

    Urgh, several weird things going on it seems. I guess the most sensible thing is to wait until we get actual emails to confirm our results then!

    I hadn't received any notification that it had changed or anything but just had a look and mine says 'Invited for assessment', not sure when this happened though.

    Edit: Just got the email confirming it literally now, spooky..
