Hi all,

I found out that I didn't pass the trainee online test I can only think this is down to the number of applicants and also the rest I figured is more towards higher education.

Can anyone shed any tips or experiences with the online assesments, I even applied for the other support role but again one of the tests shape etc was very hard.

I’m sorry you didn’t get offered an interview.
I am still waiting to hear back so I’m not sure any advise from me will help. I didn’t think the online test was good - i personally struggle with the shape test every time I do it. I have a degree and I would say I have a pretty good take on most things but I literally can’t get my head around the shape test - I’ve done hundreds of example ones over the years to try and get what it means but no! So basically everyone has there strengths and weaknesses so don’t be too downhearted - im sure there is something perfect out there for you 😊

Yeah the shapes and pattern stuff is hard. Look up inductive/diagrammatic reasoning tests. On assessementday.co.uk there are 2 good practise ones with explanations.

Thanks I had a look but it looks super confusing I know there's a method to these tests i.e focussing on changes to shapes etc. Shall just have to hope the other role isn't so strict with pass criteria!

Same as above. I know a couple of posters have the AC booked already so they might be able to shed some light on things - well done everyone 😊

Because I heard back? They might be staggered though I guess?

Do you guys mind sharing when your AC is booked for? Did you apply for the same location 😊

Unfortunately, I think most of us probably aren't going to share much more information at this stage due to the nature of the job.

Best of luck at your assessment centre though!

It was only asking when your AC was - a simple next week or in 2 weeks would have been fine - I wasn’t asking for exact time and location. I guess it’s trying to work out how much notice you get before and I asked if you both applied for the same location for those waiting to try and understand where they are with the process

Yes I’m totally getting being confidential but I didn’t think anything I asked would cause any issue - no worries tho - good luck 👍

I received an email saying im through to assessment day but to wait for a further email detailing when it will be. Applied for scotland but unsure where i would be based. Any ideas?
I realise with confidentiality etc its difficult to discuss much but wondering if anyone else had applied for scotland as well.
Well done you did better than me I didn't get passed online assessment

It didn't help I wasn't sure what to practice before I think those tests are more like high education standard. Hopefully the other role isn't so strict.

Hey guys, I applied for a support assistant role and now after doing the online tests I have been invited to do a video interview. As from what I can see on here, you guys are going to assessment days, but maybe some of you have done a video interview for NCA, and could shed some light on how I would need to prepare for it - I’ve never had a video interview before, and it’s my first time applying for a job at NCA too 😧
NCA are ultimately civil service. Just look up the competencies they assess you in via the civil service framework and prepare that way and a bit of history behind the org just in case they ask you about what you know about NCA. The website and a google search is enough.

Good luck!

Hoping to hear something back pretty soon, they did say the end of June which is very quickly approaching. I still don't have a clue what to expect from the assessment centre. 🤷*♀️
