I have just completed the verbal reasoning too 77% meeting the required standard but I think that may be too low to be honest
Did it say you met the required standard with your scores??

Just out of interest how many questions did you get was it only 4 as that's all I answered which seemed strange.

Also keep your chin up Fix1

I think I answered about 6 or 8 questions, maybe I was getting them all wrong they kept asking me more 🙈, I tried the 2 practice tests and got them all right so am very upset with myself.

Yes it states I had met the required standard. Guess we will have to wait a whole week to hear back now. Hate the waiting.

It did say something about it will keep on asking questions to better understand your analysing skills or something along those lines.

Going to be well hacked off if my interview if successful isn't during that week I'm off as this will be a total waste of time if I can't get time off after only just returning to work after 2 weeks off during the weeks we were told they would be held.

I think I might write a competency on delivering at pace while working for the civil service!!!!!!

It will be relatively short

Assessor----- give me a time when you have delivered a project on time

Civil service Resourcing------ Can I have a few weeks to answer that please because at this point the answer is NO



Disclaimer
This in no way reflects the majority of people applying for jobs within the civil service who have had their applications handled in a speedy and professional manner and not had extra tests added after they thought they had scored high enough to warrant an interview, but unfortunately it is for us so I don't apologise for being ************** OFF

Just booked my assessment day for 10th April for the EO, anyone else attending that day? Slightly nervous, as I've had interviews with CS before but no offers.

Good luck to all!
Hi miss bunny, how did your assessment day for the EO go, I have mine tomorrow and advice would be greatly received as I am so nervous xxxx

Did they give you any ideas on how long you have to wait to find out if you were successful or how many people were being interviewed? At least you know what to expect for the AO interview, I don't think I will get one unfortunately 😓

Don't give up hope Chantelle_89,
Until all tests are reviewed we wont know the cut off mark and if our comments reference it being difficult are anything to go by then everyone probably did.

It is still slightly unfair I think that they added a test when if they had increased the pass mark on the previous test I personally would have been a little happier, its the waiting around that is frustrating about the whole process.

Just received email from the other EO position in Bootle to advise I have passed the online tests and can book my telephone interview, at least they are quick getting back to applicants, the closing date hasn't passed yet.
