Yeah LPC. Are you doing the BPTC?

Good luck to you too.

Are the scores for the SJT and JRT considered later on in the process? I've been invited for video interview with SJT 54% and JRT 70% (which aren't great scores) and I'm wondering if the scores would make much difference later on?And has anyone taken the VI test and what kind of questions come up?

Doubt it - once you’ve passed you’ve passed as far as I understand.

And those scores are decent scores - to score in the 70th percentile of the total number of people who’ve done that blasted VRT is impressive!

I’m doing the VI on the weekend.

How long did you have to wait before hearing back? I've just finished the SJT - 58% and JRT - 69%. Wondering if I've applied too late to get through to the VI test!

I waited a few days.

It was a matter of hours for me. I waited around 2 hours after the SJT for the JRT and around 6 hours after the JRT for the VI. Looking to do the VI on Monday

Has anyone recorded their Video Interview yet? Trying to work out what sort of questions might be asked, general ones like Why do you want to work for the CPS, why do you want to be a prosecutor etc? Or something more specific?

Hi everyone,

I just did both SJT and VRT and results are :

VRT:87%
SJT 50% (did it yeasterday at 2 am-huuuge mistake obviously)

the status of the application is on hold...So its highly unlikely to proceed further- 50% SJT.. i can just hope the VBT can compensate? COuld u please share what do u think and if someone with similar results has got an invitation for the next stage??

Does anyone know if we are supposed to receive an email to confirm the submission of the video interview?

Yes I'm sure I read somewhere that you should receive an email confirmation. Check your junk because my invite came to my junk folder. Contact them if you don't get a confirmation perhaps.

Hope it went well for you

Was it just the usual 'why CPS' and 'experiences which make you good for the role' Qs on the video interview?

I’ve finally received an email! It took an hour to come so I was getting worried it hadn’t submitted properly.

It went ok I think! It felt very unnatural speaking to a webcam, as opposed to a person!

Yes it was them kind of Q’s, generic interview Q’s! Good luck! X

Meet your mate, I was bricking it and don't think it went well at all!! 🤢
I read all the guidance and prepped too but just hate anything that's timed!

All I can say is read the guidance and do the practice one.
Its just generic interview questions only 2 of thenm, you have 2 mins to answer but 5 mins to prepare once they show the question.

Good luck 💚

To everyone who hasn't done the interview yet, be sure to check the demo link in the PDF they provided to practise with 3 separate questions

Literally just completed it! I just feel relieved that it is over. Contrary to my suspicions, I didn't majorly fail but I'm not sure whether it went well enough. How are your exams going by the way? I'm finished until June now.

Definitely wear something formal - it is simpler if you wear a suit (well, shirt and tie at least). But there's no need for suit trousers.
