    Nice! That was really quick compared to some of the stories on the last thread!

    What have you chosen for your options? I applied last Thursday but have had no feedback as of yet. I think I messed up on the situational questions at the end, how did you find them?
    Thank you!!! I applied for business, commercial, policy and project development in Salford, Manchester, Liverpool, Bootle and Netherton. I received my first email midday confirming I had passed and then another shortly after asking me to confirm I could make it to the assessment centre for the 9th April.

    Oh and about the situational judgement I found them quite long winded as well but just put down what i thought was right I have done otheres before for companies such as jaguar landrover and not passed, it just depends on if how you think is the way the civil service wants you too i assume.

    Does anybody know if we’ll get an email if we haven’t made it through? Or is it just a matter of waiting until it’s far too late to receive good news?

    I rushed through the tests last yr cause I wasn't rly too enthusiastic about any of the schemes in contrast to having the policy option this yr. I received an email 10 mins later saying I had failed so im presuming no news is good news 😂

    No, it isn't. From what I read from last year's thread, most people don't finish. It's about the quality of your answers not the quantity

    I already work for the civil service and this is one of the things that I don’t like.

    Everyone doesn’t hear back at the same time and it can be demotivating for those that haven’t heard back....but honestly if it an instant fail you would hear straight away.

    Is there any reason you don’t get an instant result after the test there must be a minimum standard?

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong but I believe they put you into a pool and mark you against other people.. so they have to wait for a few to come in to be able to do that..

    Is Norwich one of them? Any others in the east region?
