It was purely an example. In order to answer all your questions why donโ€™t you make a list and email over to [email protected] and then you will have the exact information for this role.

Once you sign into the online test do you have to do it there and then or can you save and come back to it later?

Have a look at the competency framework, thatโ€™s quite useful! Although I struggled with that one too! Where are you applying for? Good luck ๐Ÿ€

No. You will have a short practice opportunity first. Once the actual starts you have between 1.5 to 1 minute to speed read a passage, and selection 1 of 4 answers most relevant to the question, this could be asking select the statement which is true, or it could ask select the statement which is not true. Good luck.

The test is nothing to worry about guys. I've just completed it. Just ensure your speed reading skills are in check as you have around 1 minute to read and answer each question. No feedback was provided.

Yes questions are the same. There are the same 4 for everyone. Iโ€™m not going to type out an answer but for example ....why do you think you will be a good border force officer?
Talk about the strengths you have ... eg one of the compentancy for the role is blah blah blah and I have the ability to meet this because I am dedicated, etc etc ... link any strength you are giving examples of back to the info in the candidate pack.

Thatโ€™s what I did. ๐Ÿ˜Š
What if you don't do well in your online test. It was a lot of information to read in little time and I also missed two questions as they were timed out. When will I know if I past the online test? Thanks
