I don't believe they used the test so select candidates before the interviews.
That is simply not possible. My test was horrible. And I got an invitation.
Please Cheab, please do call/email them and ask them again about the test- I mean they said they are not going to use it for short-listing candidates?! And why should they lie?
Anyway, I have aked myself why they wanted us to take this test in october?? I mean where's the sense in doing so if they don't need it before the interviews???
