    Anybody else apply for multiple schemes in multiple locations? I applied for 4 of the schemes in about 9 places; I was wondering if anybody else from this year’s applicants or last year’s has any idea on how common that is? What did all you guys apply for?
    It shows a lack of commitment and passion but it shouldn't be a major issue.

    I think it will be absolutely fine, from what I read from last years thread a lot of applicants were offered different locations to what they initially applied for, I think it would show how much you want to be part of the civil service and you are flexible which would be positive x x x

    Thankyou! Did you have to wait the full 8 weeks last year too?! So nervous !
    I definitely waited all the way last year for my online test results, think it may have even been just passed the 8 weeks, good luck for this year 🤞

    Thank you!
    It was about 10 minutes after I submitted, then another email 5 minutes later to confirm my assessment centre time and date. Its the first time I have applied and looking at other comments it seems its unusual to have heard so quickly so I'm not sure how I've been so lucky! Good luck to everyone hopefully will see you all there 😊

    I'm taking the tests tomorrow, how much did people prepare for them, and do you know if a calculator is allowed for the maths?

    Thanks.

    I just went over basic multiplying and dividing for the numeracy and wasn’t really sure how to prepare for the verbal reasoning but basic logic should be good enough. And yes, it states that a calculator is allowed for the maths section. Good luck!

    Done the tests.

    Didn't finish verbal or numerical, but answered a fair few.

    Found the situation ones so hard, could easily have been any of the choices, really depends on the kind of relationship you have with your colleagues/position you're in.

    Yeah, I agree. The situational questions are hard to answer hypothetically.
