    A friend who did her e tray just under 2 weeks ago found out she was unsuccessful last week ... I did mine before her and I'm still waiting to hear back!
    Really? What does this say for them releasing results mid-Nov?

    Im still awaiting my reasonable udjustments to be put in place for my Etray test. I've now been waiting a month for this. Every week I call and they say that we'll be arranging this next week, but nothing. The application is really dragging out if I'm being honest.

    Quick question about the E-Tray - some of the practise test answers consider certain options to be 'ineffective' eg: Not responding to the email, rather than 'least effective,' as they don't solve the situation - this seemed rather clunky and confusing in the book I was practising, and I saw no mention of this before. Is this something you see in the actual test too, or is the least effective answer just the worst option?
    I didn't see an option to not reply. It was choosing the least effective answer as the worst option

    I am also getting sick of waiting and jumping every time I get an email notification.

    I am in an OK-paying job which I hate and am bored senseless of. When I started the FS application process I put applying for jobs on hold. The updates are so few and far between that I wonder if I've done the right thing. Of course now that it is practically Christmas jobs are thin on the ground and no one is really bothering with recruitment.

    I know, I know, first world problems...

    No it's not, it's super frustrating!

    I can only imagine what it was like last year - apparently the waits were muuuuuch longer.

    I'm just getting incredibly frustrated that some people have heard and some haven't - it's made me have 1000000 doubts like; does this mean i'm amber banded? Have only the unsuccessful people heard? etc etc

    I'm really confused about the E-Tray test...I've tried searching about this online but still a bit confused. is the format 100% multiple choice or do you have to do any written work? Can someone help me with what to expect...I have never done one before apart from a practice one online which was multiple choice only.

    Sorry I know this may seem lazy of me to be asking but I am in the middle of my dissertation and have already spent a while researching this to little avail.

    it is only multiple choice, a load of info to go through at the beginning and then answering multiple choice questions with the most and least effective answer. You have 80 mins and i think 24 questions. Im also in the middle of my dissertation so i feel your pain :')

    Think I'm in a similar situation- applied under the guarenteed interview scheme and asked for 25% extra time as was automatically granted to GIS applicants last year, my online tests changed to 'congratulations you've passed' almost straight away on Friday and my etray hasn't unlocked- is that whats happened with both of you?

    No. I was successful and eTray unlocked with a deadline but they emailed me and said to let it expire as they hadn't made the adjustments.

    To be honest it says 'by the middle of November' so I'm hoping we all know by the end of next week barring those waiting for their reasonable adjustments

    Hi guys!

    I am applying for the early diversity internship with the civil service and I will be doing the online assessments tomorrow - Situational judgement and behavioral.

    I am super nervous and I want this so much!

    Does anyone have any tips/advice? How should I prepare? Anything will be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Just did the SJT and behavioural tests and passed straight away which was nice, as I didn't pass the online tests for my preferred stream last year.

    Will do the etray over the weekend. Hopefully they will have pretty much finalised the pass mark by then.

    I completed the etray around 5 hours ago and was checking my phone incessantly for a result as I got the results for the other stages quite fast (in a matter of minutes). I've been reading this thread for the past half an hour and it seems hardly anyone has got their results back for it! Will be more patient, for sure and try to put it to the back of my mind. Fingers crossed for everyone!!!

    I completed the SJT test for the internship but the e-tray didn't show and it didn't say anything about passing.

    Does this mean I was unsuccessful?
    or does this mean I was amber-branded?

    Thank you!
