    I've applied for general management, though was a reasonably close call between that and transport planning.

    They haven't asked me to do numerical tests, but presumably that will come soon? (I submitted my application 30 minutes ago!)

    Yep I've now done situational (though to be honest, I didn't like it much!)

    Lets hope I get a numerical invite soon....

    I have applied for general management too!
    It took a few days to get my invitation to the online tests so don't panic.
    Practice in the meantime!
    good luck

    Numerical now done I think that will probably be the strongest part of my application.

    It was fairly straightforward I thought. But of course I may have just made lots of mistakes! (There was one question I thought was a little ambiguous, and one that I nearly gave the wrong answer to...)

    I just did it! I thought it would've been contextual. Have you heard back yet?

    Just got that email too. Did they really need to send three emails to announce it though?

    TFL did this to a terrible extent last year, in the end it felt like a game of Russian Roulette :indiff:

    Hey Guys,

    Just completed the numerical reasoning, it wasn't at all difficult. It was much easier than most online practices. I ran out of time on the last question. But all in all I feel like I did admirably despite a few hiccups here and there.

    Hope I get through to the interview round.
