That is true, except for the Technology Stream.
Technology stream was separate from the rest, isn't it?

Just done my interview, thought it was very reasonable to be honest! Might not get through because lots of people have probably done well but I thought that was exactly the kind of interview that was a mix of flaunting knowledge of the place you want to work and flaunting yourself.

Good luck everybody!

I know no one wants to give an advantage by giving away questions- but I've just landed back in the UK and had 0 time to do any research. If anyone could send over any help I'd be hugely appreciative. Even how many conpetency/ technical. Or how long the questions are ! You'd be really helping a girl out. Thanks !

Did anyone else not get the second email saying we can disregard the previous dates outlined in your invitation email to complete your video interview? So we don't have to complete it by tonight?

Wait what? What did that email say?

I got one saying the assessment centre dates are after new year but nothing saying the deadline was moved?!

Direct quote from the email

"If you are successful at the your video interview and invited to attend an assessment centre these will be held in early 2017 in central London. Please disregard the previous dates outlined in your invitation email to complete your video interview."

to me this clearly says I have more time, but to be sure ill contact them tomorrow and definitely do it by Tuesday.

I understood this to mean that it was simply saying ignore the AC dates in the email about completing your interview, not that the interview had been moved, because otherwise surely they'd provide a new deadline to complete it by?

I would suggest you to complete the video interview today, because in my opinion it is referring to the dates of the AC, not the deadline of the video interview.

Surely they have to take gold test scores into account also for the ACs.. I hope so because while my video interview was ok, it certainly wasn't special

I found it weird how they allocated the time, it seemed the wrong way round for some, the last question was far too little time for something of that scope!
