I also had the e-mail. Don't know if it will put minds at ease for those who haven't heard yet, but I only got up to q23 on numeracy so there's definitely room for mistakes in there ( I did get them all right though!).
Good luck to anyone who hasn't heard yet and congratulations to those who are through to the next round.
As an aside; I think we will here much sooner than 2 weeks if we get through competency sift as I'm sure I read interviews to start 20th October.
Thank you for your application for the role of Higher Officer Caseworker at HMRC.
You have met the minimum score in the online assessments; however you are not in the top scoring applications for your preferred location. We have therefore placed your application on hold.
You may be invited to progress your application at a later date. However this is dependent on the number of posts that may become available in your preferred location in the future. Alternatively, if further posts do not become available within three months, we may not be able to progress your application and your application may be withdrawn.
As detailed in the Candidate Information Pack, we have only been able to progress top scoring applications through to the next stage of the process. We have received an exceptionally high quantity and quality of applications for these roles.
Thank you so much for taking the time to complete an application. We will contact you within the next three months if we are able to progress your application.
If you would prefer to withdraw your application please email us
We are sorry that we cannot provide you with a more definitive outcome at this time.

I got this email today. Does that mean I have literally no chance now? lol
Well done everyone!
I got the email, just need to sit and wait to hear about next stage eek!
What were the 4 competencies for the job?
I received the same email, what location did you apply for
I am external and I applied for Liverpool. Hopefully they are taking on more than 5 after the interview process.. I do think my competencies will let me down however as it is hard to explain how I make effective decisions in my job within the 250 word limit
I got the next stage e-mail today too. I am external and feel my competencies will inevitably let me down. I work in banking and I work a complex process. I make many "effective decisions" on a daily basis but it is hard to generalise and explain effectively within the 250 word count. Nevertheless, fingers crossed. I applied for Liverpool and hopefully they have more than 5 vacancies here
Hi have u heard back from Hmrc yet
