    I am perplexed as to why it has taken so long to add 25% additional time onto the eTray for candidates with special requirements. I keep getting told that it will be put in place 'next week' and there have been about 5 'next weeks now. I will continue waiting and practicing nonetheless, but there must be something going on for the folks working on this.

Its been a month so far. Ive emailed and called numerous times, of which I received replies of 'the test should be ready for you by next week'. Se as you, its been several weeka now.

    Does anyone know why they havnt included the video interview between online tests and assessment centre? Pretty misleading to be honest, I really don't like online interviews I almost forgot about it until I came on here and read through the comments.

    I meant on the flow chart system they have, not in actuality I know why they need to have interviews before the assessment centre with 1000's of people applying haha.

    'If you pass the online tests, you'll be invited to attend an assessment centre' what a load of bull!

    I found out my results the next day (did them on sunday, found out on monday)

    Waiting on the E-tray results now.

    I failed my tests last year so this is one step further.

    Good luck

    Not necessarily. I received an e-mail to say I have passed the SJT six weeks ago and I am still waiting for mine to unlock. Check your inbox from top to bottom!

    Any know why the generalist role doesnt require a final interview?

    Also is there a lot more places available for generalist roles compared to others?

    Applied for diplomatic but worrying about my chances.

    Has anyone heard back from the e-tray test (the one with emails)? How long did it take? I got my SJT test results straight away (15mins), but this been a week. And boy, what on earth was that e-tray test about?? I had no clue for half of it, all responses seemed the right ones in one way or the other.

    It took a week and a half to hear back for the SJT. Nothing about the E-Tray. I actually have no idea how I'll do; finding the least appropriate was simple but sometimes I had to think hard about the most appropriate.

    No idea, but Diplomatic was my first choice so I'm worried that although I may qualify for Generalist, I may not for Diplomatic.

    We should start getting the results of the E-tray back this week. I hope it's not on the 18th again like last month with the SJT and behavioural test results. That would make it Friday and that still feels ages away.
