Hi! Just completed the tests last night, didn't find the numerical too difficult but got a 64%!!! (85% verbal and SJT, I am sure they have mixed the verbal and numerical results up). Does anyone know what was the minimum score last year to pass onto the video interview? good luck everyone!

do you mean it says something like you scored better than 64% of previous test candidates?

I think it will be around mid-November once applications have closed

Hi, I got 87% in numerical , 62% in verbal and 54% in SJT. Do you think these scores will be enough to be called for a video interview? Thanks
54% on the SJT will be too low unfortunately I think. Judging on the last few years anyway. Did you feel you did better on SJT, it's usually the one that I think I've done good on and then are disappointed by the score. Hopefully not this year.

Has anyone used the Competency Framework, well reviewed it, before sitting the SJT?

Someone working with me said they got 54% last year and got through to video interview so I’ve got my fingers crossed. This yeah they have changed the process etc and it is much more difficult so I’m hoping these scores are sufficient. Honestly, these tests were difficult but I struggled with verbal more.

Roughly how many questions are there in each test? I still need to start mine but hoping for more information and revision tips for each test.

On the English and Maths there is not set number of questions, it adjusts to how well you’re doing. There are practice tests for each before you do them for real

I started my application last night and was wondering if anyone knew what the deal was as far as important application details are concerned. I was asked briefly about my university degree but not asked anything about GCSE or A Levels results. Following good performance in stage 1, are more details required of you or something like that?

I was asked the same at this stage. Unsure if further information is required later on.

How’s everyone’s feedback and scores looking? All of mine was really great except for my Numerical Reasoning being a bit lower than I would have hoped which has put me right on edge though even though the notes with it says it’s met the requirements to stay in the running.

I'm so annoyed about my numerical reasoning test score, of all three tests I expected to do the best in the numerical reasoning as its naturally my strength.
Unfortunately I had a couple of questions which I struggled with purely because of the wording of the questions and answers rather than the maths. (I'm confident my maths calculations themselves were correct).

I got 95% in the verbal reasoning and 69% in the judgement tests, hopefully that's enough to get to the next stage...

I got the same scores as you! Maths isn’t my natural strength (I thought I wouldn’t be able to pass my A-level, it was painful) but I’ve worked really hard to get my ability to a good standard and I didn’t struggle with any of the questions so I was a little bummed that I didn’t do better on it. I think I’ve gotten rusty from not using it in my degree.
