Hi everyone,

Seems surreal being back here.

Long story short - I sat stage 2 back in July 2020. I passed the WAFV, ATAVT and 2 hand co-ordination test. I came unstuck on the MMI test and ultimately failed stage 2 testing. Wounded.

I have since started a new job which I am enjoying. I have my 6 months probationary interview on Tuesday 23rd which I am currently prepping for. I am sure this will go fine, but I am putting in the work.

Out of the blue I got contacted on 17/03/21 by EMR to invite me to resit stage 2 on 24/03/21. An amazing and welcome surprise and an opportunity for which I am very grateful. I have managed to book the day off for 24/03/21 to attend.

Question is, will I be required to re-sit all of the tests or just the MMI and possibly SJE? Unfortunately EMR didn't seem entirely sure.

I want to be as well prepared as I can with the limited time I have, given as this is my 2nd and last shot. I am reluctantly minded to ask to be considered for stage 2 testing at a later date if I have to sit all stage 2 testing again as I want to be well prepared. If however I just need to sit the MMI and SJE again, I am happy to go ahead. As I said, I have a busy week prepping for the job I have and for the one I want.

Any help appreciated. Should I contact the OPC on Monday?

Thanks

Worth a try, however OPC will most likely redirect you back to EMR. If I was you I’d be contacting EMR again for clarification. Each TOC has their own policy on resits.

You will just have to sit the MMI. Do you know the question/s you failed on? Maybe some of us can be of help here :smile:

Thanks TwoTwo. I have contacted EMR in any case.

Yes I failed on:

Topic area 3

Required to follow strict rules or procedures.


Verbal communication.


From what I remember I floundered a little on this question. My current role should help more to answer this and I will concentrate further on STAR responses.

I have been searching but I am struggling to locate example MMI questions again. Can anyone direct me to a thread?

Thanks all

I made it to the talent pool. Thank you for asking :)
Excellent news, congrats! For someone imminently sitting their MMI, what would you say you did differently from the first time that got you through? I've been coming up with my examples this week and not sure how much detail I need to go into/how strong they need to be.
