GSK written assesment/interview stage

Hi!
I've applied to a placement at GSK for 2024-2025 and am now at the written assessment/interview stage. I was wondering if anyone has done this in the past and knows if it is purely a written assessment or if it also incorperates videoed answers as well.

in the email I got it says that it is a written assessment but they provide a link to a video by the company hosting the assessment that introduces what it is about and it shows that it is a video recorded interview answering written questions? but when i go to thee GSK website to look at the application stages it describes the written assessment as 5 questions with no time limit.

just would like to know exactly what I'm getting into before i start the exam, any info would be appreciated thanks!

they mainly want to know about who you are as a person and your motivations, also why you chose the placement.

I didn't prepare a lot. mainly brushed up on my CV and wrote down all the experience I've done relative to the role. I also completed all the modules on the GSK connectr site and that really helped too.

We should probably hear from them about the roles whose deadline was the 4th of October soon. All the best everyone. Let us know if any of you hear from them about the written interview. Thanks
Feeling a bit worried about the written interview because it took me much longer than 35 mins to complete. Do you guys think they secretly time it or no?
