Hi guys, I thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread for this vacancy as the two other relevant threads are becoming a bit over-saturated.

Just submitted my competency statements. Hoping to complete the online tests tomorrow.

Look forward to hearing from anyone else who has or is thinking of applying for this role.

Good luck everyone!

Same position as you. Submitted my competency answers and have the tests left to do. Not looking forward to the tests, I'm trying to find some material online to prepare for it but no luck

Just a word of warning, the online tests done via Manpower are NOTHING like those above!

Actually no! They require a lot less thought, not a lot of problem solving really but you have 8 minutes to do 30.

It's basically 30 GCSE maths sequences...but harder in the conditions.

Were you able to find practice tests which were similar?

Nothing. Honestly, your best bet is to look at GCSE quadratic sequences and get used to working them out very quickly.

Someone on one of the other threads has just said that they received a 4 and a 5 in the competency statements and still 'failed'. Maybe you need to score higher this time round as I know two people who got a 4 in the June HO campaign and still got an interview.

No! Not quadratic equations, quadratic SEQUENCES!

Just finished the test although kicking myself that I ran out of time and didn't get to the final two questions on the numerical test. How did everyone else find it?

Do you need a calculator and a pen and paper to work out the answers, or can they all be done in your head?

I only got to 25! Although I know I got them all right. I feel like next time I'd get 'em all, but it's probably not enough for this time.

I struggled more with the verbal reasoning because I'm fairly certain it said that the word order doesn't matter...and I felt like it was sometimes the only difference! Ah well, what will be will be.

I got the impresssion that the word order matter and you had to pick the pairing where the order below had the same order we was given.

I like you only got to question 25. *
In the guidelines before I think it says it's the relationship that matters and the word order doesn't (perhaps that was just in the example). The word order definitely did matter otherwise it was unanswerable. I feel better that someone else has answered based on the word order!

Oh dear, I must have misread the question because I thought the word order did matter and used that to eliminate a lot of the possible options whoops! Too late now though.

I'm somehow hoping its pretty much impossible to finish all of the numerical test properly in time, I mean 30 questions in 10 mins is really hard going!

Good luck everyone!
