    I have not heard back after the technique exercise. I feel not good about the exercise. But, I hope we could get the response this week. However, I have no idea whether they reply to the successful candidate first or last.

    Is anybody still waiting to hear back from the video interview yet? I rang them yesterday and they said my application was put on hold and that it could take 2-3 weeks to hear an outcome!

    I am - I completed mine right at the start of November. What do you think they meant by put on hold? 2-3 more weeks is ridiculous.

    Surely the Assessment Centres would have finished by then? Looks like they are just not rejecting us in case they need don't get enough people in the first round,

    What role did you apply for? I applied for the supervisory risk specialist role (Prudential Regulation Authority) and I did my interview towards the end of November. I'm not sure what they meant by hold tbh.

    I applied for a non-economist / Generalist role. Would you mind passing me the number you used to contact them?

    I just spoke to them - I was asked which role I had applied for (non-economist) and they said people would be contacted in batches, but that no one had been contacted yet (I assume they meant only non-economists, given the above post). I mentioned ACs starting next week and they said you won't necessarily hear before then, and it will be over the next couple of weeks.

    Ah ok - thanks for updating, hopefully a response comes sooner rather than later or it will be 3 months since my video interview!

    Good Luck! Did they tell you what you will be assessed on at the AC? What sort of exercises will there be?

    Thanks! Should receive more info in an email but I remember the website saying there will only be one technical interview (yay! not much time for pre-AC revision now haha). I am applying for an economist role so as someone above mentioned, it might take longer for them to get back to the non-specialist candidates.
