Hi,

I have completed my online Verbal Reasoning test, does anyone know if there will be more test? For example a Maths test?
Do they confirm receipt of the test and how you scored?

Good luck to everyone doing it

I was wondering if someone might be able to help me please. I am applying for border force position and the questions on the application form seem to be generic ones and not directly asking any competency questions. I’m familiar with STAR format but I don’t see how I would apply it to questions such as ‘why do you think you would be a good officer?’ And ‘which team was the best team you worked in and why?’ Any help would be much appreciated!
I too am familiar with the STAR concept but didn't see any requirement to apply it to any of the questions within the application. I have been emailed my link to the online test a couple of days ago. I'm currently practising similar tests online prior to doing it for real.

Thank you, I’ve seen that site and it is helpful but on the form it says to refer to the competencies? This is all very confusing! Did you get similar questions to the ones I wrote previously? Did you answer them just as you would a story or was it more structured? Did you give real life working examples or just explained your strengths? I’m just a bit confused on how I need to answer these questions!
I answered the questions as I would have had I been asked them verbally. Hope this helps.

Great, hope you get through to paper sift, my fingers are crossed too although did'nt think I did too well in my online test but still hoping. Guess we will know the answer after the 22nd April. Shame we were not informed of our scores after completing online test.

With regards to the Cardiff position, I wonder if it’s at the docks or the airport or both.

I think it could be either the docks or the Airport but I don't mind either as I don't live far from Cardiff

It only give around 75 seconds to read a few paragraphs and answer the question. Hope you do OK.
