    I'm aware of the process, what I'm saying is that due to the size of the campaign the minimum expected could be all it takes. A score of a 777 is v.unlikely in a HEO campaign.
    Just to reiterate the point in the last campaign there were around 450 jobs compared to this time where there are only 300 jobs. If you read through the older pages you will find a number of candidates who scored even 6,5,5 never mind 4,4,4 and didnt secure the role as other candidates scored higher. Purely depends on location applied for and number of vacancies available. But yes you are true in saying it could happen but just very unlikely as thousands apply for these roles

    What TraineeAcc has said is right. However it will largely depend on how many vacancies there are at the location you have applied for which will determine if the minimum standard of 444 would see you get a provisional offer or not.

    If you trawl back through this thread to near the beginning when the results were returned for the March campaign someone who interviewed for Leeds scored 544 and was given a provisional offer, whereas someone who interviewed for Liverpool scored 667 and only made the reserve list. Whilst there may be '300' total vacancies this will count for nothing if the location you apply for has 10 vacancies and over 300 people have been interviewed for that location.

    I know people in the last HO/O campaign who scored 665 and were put in reserve list. Know another who scored 666 at HO competency and was offered O and not HO.

    Ps. I hope you're right though. I'm just being realistic but feel like I'm being a depresso lol
    Yes, that was when they did the joint campaign for band O and HO. After that there was another campaign just HO. Now that they've advertised internal vacancies again most people that were on the reserve lists have been offered a role.

    Fingers crossed for everyone!

    In the last EO campaign, you had to get at least 6666 or 777 to get an offer (I got 4455 and am on the reserve list) . All others were put on a reserve list (ironically I did better in the HEO competencies/interview than the EO ones...go figure)

    I know that's what I was worried about, I thought you'd receive an automatic confirmation as soon as you placed the order, but it doesn't seem to work like that? I managed to find mine after though so I'm not sure.

    Can I ask what you mean about a statement? Is it your official statement of results? Because I'm pretty sure that should be enough, considering that exam boards don't provided replacement certificates but 'certified statements with results on'. I'm certain that that is adequate.

    What I've also gathered so far, is that people seem to be told different things all the time! I went for an interview in the Cardiff office last week, and whilst I was in the waiting room a man said he didn't have all his GCSE certificates, but he had his HND certificate. The worker seemed happy with that.

    Whereas my friend also had an interview at Cardiff the week before, and with her the woman was only interested in the GCSE certificates, and didn't take her additional A-level and degree certificate. Because of that, I only brought the GCSE certificates for mine, but the woman seemed to think I should have also brought along my degree certificate for good measure.
    Thanks, will take everything I have and just explain situation if needed.

    It is the official statement of results (the one you get at the same time as your certificate) so hopefully that will be enough!

    Yeh I think so. I was offered a provisional on August 15th. On pre-employment checks now. My location was only recruiting 2 roles. I'm on the Feb 2016 batch. I scored 544. Most likely low scoring will be put on the reserve list and offered a position later on.

    I've been told that results will be out within next 2 weeks. If you go on feedback it may show your score? Mine says 6,6,6 under the competency section

    Can't be 100% but quite sure because the application was only one competency.

    My application had 4 competencies. I know when i applied in february that had 1 competency. Also i applied internally. The other question i wanted to ask is is there any difference in the exams you have to take for an O grade and a HEO grade?

    Not sure then, the process for the internal one would have been totally different.

    Yes there is. A good example is like requiring you to study to AS level for band O and requiring the full A level for HO (just a metaphor). A lot of things might be similar but HO training usually takes the topic a small bit further and more complex.

    Thanks for that it makes perfect sense and the example you gave was brilliant.

    Wow you had to wait that long for a formal offer?! This recruitment process is insane!! I can't even get them to respond to my emails never mind send me a formal offer or tell me I haven't been successful.

    Were you on the reserve list?
