    That must be a good sign. I did my online questionnaire etc on Thursday. Nothing heard yet. They did say allow up to 20 working days though

    That’s a really good sign. What depot did you apply for?

    I personally don’t think there’s much to practise for in regards to the online process but when it comes to stage 1 and 2 assessments they will send you practise material..
    However for the visual search exercise this is pretty similar...

    Real test is similar but it's a lot faster and has two things happening at once.

    It's not easy to pass this test.

    Yes I done it and I would say I got around 85-90% correct and made some mistakes especially when doing multi tasking to find errors.

    Not sure what will happen now.

    The Situational judgement part I only completed 20 questions so not sure how many questions there was in total.

    Did it stop you from completing SJ or you stopped yourself after 70mins. I did mine but didnt notice how many questions it was.

    I was on question 21 and 20 completed and the time ran out for this section. I'm disappointed that I ran out of time but I'm happy with the answers I gave as I feel those are the answers I would have given had it been a real situation.

    I think it's luck of the draw. To be honest I was surprised to hear of the person getting a reply in a day, as did say allow up to 20 working days

    Only just opened my email however many days later. Has Anyone that has taken the SJT or VSE? If so how similar is it to the practice test given?

    Hi guys, I’m new on here. Completed the online assessment on Friday for Abbeywood depot but no reply yet. On average how long does it take to hear back.

    I’m in the same boat as you, I completed the online assessment on Wednesday for Abbeywood. They said I will hear back within the next 20 days but it seems like people have already starting progressing to the VSE stage and I haven’t heard anything as of yet. Fingers crossed.

    Pretty similar but the practice test follows a particular pattern which makes it looks easy...the main test doesn't, but it's similar.

    Full concentration needed on 3rd part. There is two things happening at once so gotta concentrate and have a decent mouse to use.

    Last Wednesday, got the email on Friday around 7pm only saw it today and completed it. The 3rd part is a real boozy. 137 but missed between 8-10. I'm ****ting bricks because I dunno what it means. I got really confused as they switched what should be an error with no and what isn't an error with yes.
