Are these the questions they asked you during the pre recorded interview?

I have two! You’re going to get asked 6 questions, 2 per behaviour which you will find on your application. I would think of two examples per question and use the STAR method to answer these, have some notes near also. You have one minute of thinking time before answering each question, then 3 minutes to answer.
One of mine was ‘Give me an example of a time when you had to analyse information to make a decision?’ I’m sure I spoke about finding a child care provider for when I returned back to work after maternity leave, so definitely remember not ever answer has to be work related.

I did the same and still no outcome for the interview. It is ridiculous.

Sorry. That’s not the ideal way to start a weekend. Are you going to reapply?

It is what it is. I didn’t do very well in the interview so it was expected. What’s funny is that I scored 3 for every single question.
I have already reapplied, waiting for the results to the SJT.
Did you get your outcome?

Glad you’ve already reapplied. I did that about a week ago. I didn’t think I’d done
Myself justice in the interview so hedged my bets as soon as a fresh application got advertised.
No I’ve not heard anything. Just had this bizarre change in status this afternoon. The third different status. Do you know what your status had gone to before you got the email?
Good thing is this next time you’ll know roughly what’s needed in the interview and you’ll be calmer waiting the weeks and weeks it takes to get the result

Hope you have a good weekend. Onwards and upwards xx
Has anyone gotten their results back

Aww, sorry to hear that. Wishing you luck with the next!
Can I just ask, did your status change to bring reviewed at all before you got the outcome? Thanks
