    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.
    Same time I sent mine off then. Still no email

    I submitted my complete application on Thursday 29th Sept '16 and received my next stage email today at 17.05. From a reading of the candidate pack for this role, my understanding is that they will only read and score the second competency if the first competency has been scored at a 4 (out of 7) or higher. Then the candidates who are ranked the highest based on their two competency scores will be invited for an interview. Congrats to everyone who passed this stage!

    I also had the e-mail. Don't know if it will put minds at ease for those who haven't heard yet, but I only got up to q23 on numeracy so there's definitely room for mistakes in there ( I did get them all right though!).

    Good luck to anyone who hasn't heard yet and congratulations to those who are through to the next round.

    I only got to about number 25 on the numerical test and didn't answer two and guessed two. So I agree, that there is definitely room for error congrats by the way!

    Basically the same here too, time was running out, I guessed a couple and got to number 25 so was surprised when the email said I was in the top scoring applicants.

    Thank you for your application for the role of Higher Officer Caseworker at HMRC.

    You have met the minimum score in the online assessments; however you are not in the top scoring applications for your preferred location. We have therefore placed your application on hold.

    You may be invited to progress your application at a later date. However this is dependent on the number of posts that may become available in your preferred location in the future. Alternatively, if further posts do not become available within three months, we may not be able to progress your application and your application may be withdrawn.

    As detailed in the Candidate Information Pack, we have only been able to progress top scoring applications through to the next stage of the process. We have received an exceptionally high quantity and quality of applications for these roles.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to complete an application. We will contact you within the next three months if we are able to progress your application.

    I am external and I applied for Liverpool. Hopefully they are taking on more than 5 after the interview process.. I do think my competencies will let me down however as it is hard to explain how I make effective decisions in my job within the 250 word limit

    I got the next stage e-mail today too. I am external and feel my competencies will inevitably let me down. I work in banking and I work a complex process. I make many "effective decisions" on a daily basis but it is hard to generalise and explain effectively within the 250 word count. Nevertheless, fingers crossed. I applied for Liverpool and hopefully they have more than 5 vacancies here

    Hi what exactly did the email say?

    "We are delighted to let you know that you are in the top scoring applications for the online tests. You have therefore reached the next stage of your application for the post of Higher Officer Caseworker.

    Your application will now be placed with our independent panel that will assess and score the competency statement(s) provided in your application. We expect to start reviewing the competency statements shortly and provide you with an outcome within the next two weeks, if not sooner."

    Have you heard anything? It sounds like not all of the emails are coming through at the same time.
