Stage 3

Be yourself
Demonstrate flexibility, thinking on your feet, team working, enthusiasm.

Prepare answers to competency type questions. Be prepared to expand and talk around your examples extensively.

Dress smart
Engage with the interviewers if they join you for lunch

Best of luck!

12 months since you did the initial online test. Don't hold your breath though, I should have been able to re-apply in October 2011......

Yeah patience is the key I think.... Is it common to go through the first time? Is there many re applicants at the college?

Does anyone knows is there an age limit for applicants? They told me in Nats that no age limit, but how does it looks in practice? Is anyone over 30 ?;(

Can anyone tell me if its a good idea that I use a mouse for the initial online assessment or is a laptop touchpad sufficient? I understand some of the practise games may be involved.

Thanks
Luke
