Anyone having their final interview on 27th Nov? Me and a friend are both on that day. There is likely to be one group only that day so it would be really nice if more of us can meet up before hand, get to know each other, make it more comfortable!
can anyone shed some light on the current compass test?? This is the part that i have completely no idea wt it is since CX always changes the content. Plx share if u have idea on how to prepare for the test.
anybody here doing the final stage during 29-30 November? The email I got says I'll be doing a computer based personality test (45 minutes). Is this the same thing as the compass test, or does this mean I won't be doing the compass assessment at all?
No, I didn't do a compass test during the initial interview. Did the technical MC test, the abstract reasoning test, and the interview. Since the guy didn't list the compass test, should I assume I won't be doing it at all? Don't want to show up that day and be surprised with it.
I did email the guy to ask about the compass test, but all he replied with is that I am required to do the personality test. I'm not sure if he's reluctant to tell me specifically about having to do it or not (maybe he's not allowed to?), or he really means to say I won't be doing it.
I don't think they would intentionally tell you that you didn't have to do something and then make you do it on the day, that would be unfair. The main thing with the COMPASS test is to brush up on your mental maths, basic physics (if doing the basic COMPASS), and maybe some memory exercises to help recall info. The other parts you can't really prepare for to be honest. So maybe just put a little time aside for this during your prep, and if you are made to do it then you'll be prepared in some way.
Yes. Those on course in ADL will start in HK upon "graduation", those already waiting for a course or being interviewed now will have to wait some time for a course date. Ab initio only to be processed.
