    Oh dear, I must have misread the question because I thought the word order did matter and used that to eliminate a lot of the possible options whoops! Too late now though.

    I'm somehow hoping its pretty much impossible to finish all of the numerical test properly in time, I mean 30 questions in 10 mins is really hard going!

    Good luck everyone!
    Word order WAS IMPORTANT. It clearly specified this!!

    Yeah she gets that, it was I that misread...and even though I did misread (because I had two children running around me) I still worked it out no bother when it came to the questions

    I was clarifying, I've seen about ten people on two threads arguing about this. Someone on Saturday was adamant that word order didn't matter and was calling people dumb for thinking otherwise.

    I see. I personally must have imagined it because in my head it was in capitals at the start - not sure what other people were claiming as I've only been paying attention to this thread. Regardless, I thought the first question was enough to make it blatantly obvious!

    Does anyone know if HMRC will be recruiting for O grades from tho campaign also? This is something that they have done on other occasions.

    Does anyone know whether applying to this scheme will make any difference to the application to the TSP 2016, be it good or bad. Or are/will the two be totally separate? Thanks.

    My guess is that we won't hear back till Monday 10th October 2016, but I could be wrong...

    Just an update for everyone: I just had an email saying that I'd passed the online tests and they are now reviewing competency statements. They said that they'd get back to us with those scores within two weeks!

    I got it as well and I'm external.

    Congrats everybody!

    I'm really doubting my competencies though. I'm confident with my leading one, not so much with the other one. Does anyone know how they are marked? I.e. if I get a great score in one and a bad score in another, am I rejected or will it even out?

    My understanding was they sift on the first, then only score competencies for the second if you scored a pass mark or high mark on that. So if your first is stronger then that's better. I feel my first is stringer too. But been through many sifts at lots of different levels, it's hard to tell what the person who is scoring will think, I think it's hard to be objective.

    I finished mine and sent it on Saturday evening. 1st October. I did receive mine about half an hour after others by the looks of it.
