    Hi all

    Unfortunately, I failed the first set of assessments for GWR. I've only just received the email. I have emailed them back asking for feedback.

    Do they give feedback on which specific test(s) I failed?

    Regarding my assessment for Crossrail, can I take their assessment (if I pass the online test)? I've read different answers on this forum.

    If it's the psychometric assessments regulated by the OPC then you'd have to wait 6 months, even with Crossrail - or any other train company for that matter.

    GWR should be able to give you feedback on your test scores, and whether you reached the national standard/enhanced benchmarks.

    Good luck going forward mate.

    Sorry to hear that Adrian. If the tests you did were the initial online ones and not the tests you'd do physically at an assessment centre, then I don't think they affect anything with other TOCs / posts

    Unfortunately they were the ones at the assessment centre.

    I know I could have done better regarding the telephone directory. I didn't realise they were all plumbers. I should have just checked all of the symbols and nothing else.

    I'm hoping to get feedback in the next few weeks. Once I do, I'll post it on here

    Adrian I expect that GWR will direct you to the OPC as they run the assessments, and unfortunately you may have to wait some time for feedback

    I think it is a bit like how long is a piece of string, but likely to be weeks rather than days.
