    Any tips for the FSAC guys?!
    My best advice is to try and relax. Remember that the staff are trying to help you to get all of the information across to prove you meet the competencies, so being relaxed in conversation with them really helped me.

    Likewise, I found talking to the other candidates before we started the exercises really helped to keep calm and focused, and made things easier in the group exercise.

    Good luck!

    Hi everyone. I've reached the E-Tray stage. Just a quick question: are applicants still re-tested for the Verbal and Numerical reasoning tests?

    I know that this used to happen two years ago. Just wondering if anyone knew when the re-tests would take place.

    In all previous years they have been re-tested, two years ago (or more) this happened at the E-Tray centre, now the E-Tray is online that obviously can't happen anymore. Last year they did it at the FSAC but it made the day ridiculously long so I've heard rumours that they aren't retesting them this year. Perhaps they will do some random retests?

    I had an ac last Wednesday and I found out yesterday. I emailed parity yesterday and they said if we didn't hear in the next couple of days we'd be waiting until December or January.

    That's good to know, still not that long but it would be nice to know before Christmas!

    Did you pass?

    Question for those that already had their FSAC: what is the written part of the group exercise about? I seem to find very little information about it! What competencies are they testing in that part?

    I felt the same before I went; I had no idea what to expect. But, it's actually a straightforward continuation of the group discussion. I can't give too much detail, but your discussions in the group and your own understanding of the materials provide the information required to complete the written exercise. I believe you are assessed on the same competencies for the group discussion part and the written part.
