The irony of Karolinaz96 asking for help and then when she is in a position to help, she is no where to be seen.

Erm I do help every single person that dm’s me, i get around 3 messages so I help every single person. If you read through the comments i reply to every question, if u have trouble, you could have messaged me directly as I didnt even see the comment.

I dont think you can do much for it, theres 2 sample tests online 1 of them is timed so i recommend doing that as in the real in tray i found it really challenging to keep track of the time. It was 90 minutes but i had around 50 different papers to go through so do a timed practice. Other than that just start your in tray asap dont plan and do maybe 5 minutes per paper! Good luck

Hi! I have my detective assessment in June! How long did it take for you to get your result for it? I'm worried that they're going to give me a month and then ask me to start asap? I have to relocate so I need about 2 month's notice!
