    Well done! I hope it goes well for you I'm sitting my verbal tomorrow and my numerical Sunday so hopefully I'll be offered an interview after that.

    Do you know what sort of percentile is a good place to be at for the verbal? Or just % correct in general?
    unfortunately im not told my percentile but my approach was quantity focused which may of made me lose accuracy but I still got through😄 I'd advise don't stay on a question too long and go with gut instinct. Doing some practise tests beforehand should help as well😄

    I would say it's best for a teacher to write one because then it will be evidence from another that you're on track for your grades and another person's perspective on your character

    Absolutely ****ed the numerical test. Got about 14 questions done then just started guessing as I was about to run out of time. Only confident on about 10 of those 14 too... so well below 50%. I found the verbal pretty easy but this just caught me by surprise. Should receive my rejection email within 48 hours


    It really pisses me off because none of the questions really stumped me, just took ages.

    Cheers but really? That's like 40%, I know the test is designed for graduates but still.

    Anyways how quickly after doing your last test did you get invited for interview?
