    To those of you discussing test marks - are these for the 'Technical exercise' after the video interview? And are you applying for specialist roles?

    On your scores, did you either get full marks or 0 on each question??

    Yes. I found this quite odd as well.

    I did! Which was confusing as I had thought that, particularly on the questions with 2 or more points to be given, there would be some points for getting at least a part of the answer right.

    Considering this especially do you know how much weighting is given on this part of the test for invitations to the AC? Is it totally just this test? I ask this because of the all or nothing marking system which seems a bit unlucky for some if they got a part of the large-questions wrong, like the 5 mark one

    Wish I knew! I would assume that it's just the test plus the profiling thingy - each division must have some limits re no of ppl they would like to interview. I.e. if 99% of applicants are deemed super suitable for financial stability and only 1% for monetary policy, the latter candidates are more likely to go through to the AC even though their scores may be lower. But then it depends on how much weight is placed on the profiling questionairre which brings us back to square one haha.

    Nope, nothing yet –__–

    Could someone do me a massive favour and post the link to the application portal login page? I can't find it in my inbox and googling is getting me nowhere. Thanks!

    No, I haven't heard back after the video interview. I was just wondering if I do get lucky and get invited to the AC would I have to take the tests again. I hope they let us know at least a week before the AC to give us enough time to prepare for it.

    Unlikely to have to do tests again. They will have different tests at the assessment centre. I would guess they'll try to give a week... ACs are going on for a couple of weeks..
