i have mine in Exeter in a couple weeks. how was it ?
Yeah assessments were absolutely fine. Just found the mmi weird as she specifically asked for it to be structured in the star format which was fine as that's how I had been preparing for it. But in the interview she wouldnt let me get to the action part, just kept asking me questions on the situation and task parts I had already mentioned. So had to put any key words and key points I needed to make inside the questions she was asking which made it a bit more difficult.

Went okay though, I hope. Will find out in a few days I guess!

Just one interviewer. Yeah did the assessments. They were fine. Found them easier than stageone assessments. I think the most difficult one for me was the ATAVT test.

The interview was around an hour.

Just got an email confirming I've passed the mmi!!!!! over the moon. Mad as I only did it yesterday and they said it could take up to 2 weeks. And I really did not think it went well at all ahah!!

Any one has any questions about stage 2 hit me up, more than happy to shed some light seeing as so many others have done the same on here.

(For gwr, plymouth)

Typical interview technique to see how people perform under pressure.

1. A time you had to do something in the face of difficulty

2. A time you had to do something where it was important not to make a mistake

3. A time you had to deal with Rules and procedures

She then also asked: If you saw a colleague not following rules and procedures, what would you do.

4. A time I dealt with an emergency situation

5. A time you had to persevere to learn or achieve something

6. A time you completed a task similar to a task a train driver does

At one point during the interview she also asked a hypothetical question, which was: if a colleague was falling behind with work, would you help them.

Followed by: What could you do to assist them and then What else could you do to assist them.
