I saw a post from somebody who did them last year and they said it was the day after the tests closed - so Thursday. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but I imagine we should find out relatively quickly as the test scoring is all automated. Fingers crossed everyone seems to have found them horrible so don't give up hope!

Hi! I applied last year and Lisa is right, we found out really quickly. I didn't make it in last year, so I've applied again this year, did the aptitude tests this morning. I remember getting very anxious about them last year because I thought I'd done terribly, but I actually did fine. They're supposed to be hard so that they can weed out the bottom 30%, so don't worry too much, pretty much everyone finds them tough!

Best of luck this year! Did you get an interview last year? After you got rejected last year, how did you spend your year after, out of curiosity? I'm not very hopeful this year (doubt I even passed the aptitude tests if I'm honest ) so I'm gonna need to start planning my year before reapplying in 2021!

And are you going to start working in September 2020? Or is it another date?

Edit: Just thinking about next year's applications and when I'll start if I'm accepted!

Ah. I'm going to finish my master's in October anyway, so wouldn't have been able to make it in time! Thanks for your response

Thanks! I got shortlisted and put into the interview reserve group but didn't actually get called up for interview. I was working as a healthcare assistant at the time, but I applied for a different masters, so I'm now doing a masters in genomic medicine, which I would finish just in time for the STP (so fingers crossed!). I think the results for the aptitude tests are on your oriel application now (in that it should say if you've been longlisted, which means you passed). Good luck!

Hi there JersMatt

I have no idea, but I feel like shortlisting occurs around March!

Hi there JersMatt

I also am not 100% but from past experience I feel as though it was around March. I remember there not being much time between them saying you had an interview / or not and the actual interview.

Hope this helps
