    Can anyone who has already done the numerical, verbal and logical tell me if you have to do them all consecutively?

    No it allows you to save after each one.

    I did the tests this evening. I found that the verbal reasoning was super short with only maybe 5 questions. Did anyone else experience anything similar? Also does anyone know if the tests are a general cut off or if they consider degrees / experiences etc. as well? Thank you!
    They were all very short for me. I'm confident that I answered every single numerical and abstract reasoning correctly. I had just 5 questions for each.

    I had about 10 abstract reasoning and numerical ones and only 5 verbal reasoning ones

    That's interesting, I wonder what is going on but I guess its different questions for everyone. All my questions for the abstract were simple and extremely similar to the practice. As for the maths, it was easier than the practice. I'll keep this thread updated and hope everyone else does.


    Good luck

    Thank you, good luck to you too I found the abstract ones really tough, maths ones were more fun. Struggled with verbal reasoning.

    To all who have finished all the online tests - did you receive an email stating you will hear on December 22nd? I have read that one or 2 people have had this email from this thread but I have not had this email. My application status says 'on hold' and 'your online assessment is under review' in orange down the list?

    Good luck all!

    You may have to wait for the email. I received it after a few hours. No need to worry.

    I'd say they are challenging but not horrifyingly difficult.

    I always find logical reasoning a breeze, so I found it fairly easy. Numerical was enjoyable with some trickiness, Verbal I struggle with because I always second guess myself, and the SJT, well, I have no idea how I did. I hate SJTs because you can get into a self-doubt spiral, ha. I like the videos, though!

    Like the person above me said its not difficult. But it depends on whether you are decent at GCSE level math or if you can think logically. But of course if you're bad at both I would say to do the practice tests on the official website and see where you're then practice on your own using free tests online. And then do the test.

    I went straight in after doing the official practice tests, but I'm good at maths and my masters is from a science background.

    And to answer your previous question: you can't pick the order. Its SJT > Logical > Quantitative > Verbal

    I have done all the tests, I haven't had a confirmation email or anything to say I've 'applied'. I'm a bit concerned as its just saying online tests in review - I don't know If I've actually applied though

    I have completed the test, and now my application is under review. The numerical and also verbal tests are pretty much identical to the HMRC tests.
    I answered approximately 15-19 questions for the numerical test and also verbal test, which is a good sign. I believe I answered around the same amount of questions for the HMRC numerical/ verbal tests, and my score for those tests pushed me up in the 96%/98% percentile position.

    How long do all the tests take to do? Do we have to submit the application and do all the tests before the deadline at 11am?

    Like lots of people above are saying - they vary quite a bit. I'd give yourself three hours? Still plenty of time, applications close at 11am! I just finished mine - off to bed!

    Good luck

    I just finished all my tests right now! Stayed up because I knew I wouldn't wake up early enough to do them by 11. The verbal test was longest by far. Numerical and logical were quite short so I don't know what to make of how well I did. Time for the waiting game!
