    What kind of questions did they ask? If you don't mind me asking. I have mine in Friday and am pretty nervous. :eek:

    That's pretty short? What did they ask or was it just more of a conversation type thing?

    Mine lasted just over 20 minutes! the questions aren't too bad all I'd say is think what your strengths are and why as put on the spot this was quite tricky to answer, I wouldn't get too nervous as it's quite relaxed, my interviewer talked to me for abit about what I do in my free time and also what I did today and was going to do in the afternoon/evening, he said he'd get back to me about my application in 2 to 3 days however I think it may take longer, btw which offices has everyone applied

    Has anyone done them yet?

    I have a feeling the numerical reasoning test is going to be so hard.
    I tried doing some practice reasoning tests which gave you 60 seconds for an answer. By the time I digested the question at least 30 seconds was already gone.

    How would you suggest I prepare for it to get the best possible marks?
    Well for the numerical one, normally you get one set of info for about 3-5 questions. If that's the case, I'd quickly scan the info set for about 15 secs to get an understanding of what it is. Look for the axes definitions and then any asterisks explaining details of it. Then, I'd try to bash out each question one by one. Always have a spreadsheet open at the same time, and use a desktop with a mouse, not a tablet/mobile device.

    TBH I always found the numerical ones fairly straightforward. It was those damn logical ones that killed me!

    Anyway with all these things obviously practice makes perfect so check out the practice test at SHL site or shlhelp.co.uk or any other practice options.
