    Why not emailing them directly and explain that you may have something else to offer to them, i.e. work experience or competencies they are looking for?

    The SJT questions lead on from each other, the wording of the next question gave you an idea if you were answering right previous and on the right track which I found helpful.

    Anybody been invited for video interview?

    Also I know you cannot fail the Personality test because, it is only being used by BoE to determine in which department / kind of work would suit you if you are successful.

    How did you find numerical/verbal tests? Are they like the standard practice tests online?

    They numerical was quite different and I know I didn't do well on that. The verbal ones were okay but the time was very tight for me.

    I think the tests are from TalentQ. Was numerical test with the drop down list of answers?
