    No email, 'online tests completed' on the portal, I'm getting less optimistic by the minute. Shame really as I got to the AC last year, and these tests are usually my strong point so without trying to sound cocky I'd be quite surprised if I hadn't passed. Guess I must have had an off day. Ah well there's always next year.

    Mine has just changed from test completed to unsuccessful oh well
    Did you get an unsuccessful email? Nearly everyone passes Stage 2 tests, only those who score very high go through to AC.

    I'm just hoping that 'online tests completed' means that we're in a later batch that hasn't been processed yet. Please let that be true.

    Wow, thats quite a surprise. Last year only 50% was required in the analytical test to pass, only 200 people failed at Stage 2 last year, most others were offered O jobs.

    Well thats a bummer.

    Just got an email saying im successful at stage 2 - not on reserve list.

    I met the minimum standard but my scores werent high enough to be invited to the assessment centre.

    I will be considered for any other posts which come available in the next 9 months apparently.

    Not sure how that can be described as successful.

    Guess I'll try again next year or apply for ATSP in the future

    I got the exact same email, and I got this email last year aswell. Its good because you will possibly offered a band O job in the near future, so better than nothing. But your right, I wouldn't describe that as successful either.

    Me too - not even on the reserve. Ah well. Best to take it on the chin and smile and move on eh.

    Band O and HO jobs are offered to the stage 2/3 successful candidates who don't get on the TSP so it's an option for a few of you, I took a HO post from last years application!

    Hope everyone has a lovely new year and best of luck to the AC ones :-)

    Sorry to hear that.
    I feel particularly frustrated because my status yesterday had changed to invited for assesment, and then subsequently changed again, although I never received an email at that time confirming it.

    Im already in a band O post at the moment so fingers crossed I might be considered for a HO on the back of this.

    Best of luck to those who got through.
