I’m sure you did great! I without a doubt did terribly on mine (I got more than half of the questions wrong on the practice exercises), but by some luck I made it through lol. Hang in there and all the best, hoping they get back to you ASAP ✨✨
I just received an email saying I passed it and onto the VI. I did notice something odd lol. They said I passed the numerical test which I didn’t even do😭

Maybe it’s an automated email if you reach the bench mark, as only certain schemes do the numerical? Although I am sceptical as to whether everyone completes all stages and then Ofcom sift them after because I did really terribly in the numerical test and got invited to the VI

From what I know on last years intake. It seems like brightnetwork does the first sifting and then ofcom sifts further. I honestly think we wouldn’t have made it to the VI if we atleast didn’t meet the benchmark as thats alot of VIs to go through. I wish we got feedback on each stage as its hard to know where I failed last year

✨✨✨ Ahhh fantastic news!!!!! Congratulations. That’s strange, I didn’t even notice that before, but my email also says I passed the numerical reasoning test, perhaps a typo.

I did my VI on Saturday night lol, honestly it could go either way for me. All the best with yours.

Has anyone completed the video interview yet? I assume it’s the STAR style questions?
Yeah completed mine on Saturday.

Questions:
- explain Ofcom to a friend
- which sector of the business you’d like to work for and why
- what values of the business align with your own/what are your values and how do they align with theirs.
- And a question about what you would do if a colleague asked for help when you’re on a deadline.

Sameeeeeee. Because of my anxiety, I always feel they don’t allow me to show the best of who I am/my skills.

Omg I just got an email saying my VI has been progressed and they’ll do the shortlisting to compare after the deadline. Is that what yours said too? -

Thank you for completing the video interview for your application to the Ofcom - Policy, Enforcement & Research Graduate 2022 opportunity. I am pleased to confirm that your video interview met the required benchmark to progress into the shortlisting stage.

In this stage, we will be reviewing your application, test and video scores together, alongside all other applicants that get this far, to select who will be shortlisted and submitted directly to Ofcom. Ofcom will then decide on the candidates to invite to assessment centre.

We hope to complete the shortlisting by the end of December so please bear with us for now, and assessment centres will be ~February.
