    Specifically, is it just numerical reasoning or does it also contain data interpretation, numerical computation or numerical estimation questions ?

    Sorry first time I replied didn't really read this properly (I thought you were asking numerical Vs verbal etc). I guess it includes most of those things under num reasoning (it has graphs etc).

    Thanks! It's shocking how rusty one can get at maths over time. Hopefully the revision will pay off , good luck all!

    I got an email about 30 seconds after I sat the test- but I did do it in normal office hours. I found I was very pushed for time but still passed- so don't worry too much about it, the pass mark obviously isn't 100%!

    The interviews starts at the end of January, does anyone have an idea when we find out if we've been successful? I need sufficient notice to get out of work if I am on the rota.

    I found out about the online tests about 30 seconds after doing them- I think it's at least semi-automated. If you're through the online tests, then there's a part of the email that comes through saying you've passed the tests which says:

    "We will not be able to confirm if you have been selected for the next recruitment stage until all applications have been received and considered. This will take place towards the end of the year. We hope to be in touch during the first week of January. "

    i.e. I would imagine we'll hear in the first week of January about whether we're through to the JSAC.

    Sorry to hear that, hope you're successful in whatever else you decide to go for. I'm quite worried now as I didn't manage to finish the numeracy test...

    JSAC invite . Just got the email! I saw it was from NOMS and having seen the penultimate post was sure it'd be a rejection, but it was an invite. So they are now coming through. Terrified, but so pleased.

    I suppose as they don't give any guidance on what to wear that there's no strict rule - personally, I won't go in a suit but I won't go in jeans either. Does anyone know if its just the driving license/passport that we have to take with us or if there's anything else?

    Hi all, I applied with literally 10mins to go before they wouldn't accept applications! Managed to get through, do the online test, pass that and now get through to JSAC! Very excited, although not entirely sure what to wear, probs wear something reasonably practical, smart casual! I applied for the South-West, anyone else apply there? Nice to finally be able to speak to people about this, I don't know anyone else applying!

    Hi, I applied for North West and then emailed them to request they also consider Midlands for me too. They emailed me back saying although you have put a preference applicants should be flexible and may be placed at any prison in the country

    How did today go? What kind of things did you have to do? I also agree, I would definitely always go for a smarter option!
