Wise words of advice. Looks like there are already issues so get it done when you can

Has anybody done stage 2 yet? My laptop is on its last legs so want to see if i can do it on my tablet. I know i can do the video interview on my tablet but would like to know what the rest is before committing to a device

Cheers

You will definitely need your laptop and a mouse for one of the tests if not two.

You can open it up though and answer most of the assessment exercises on your tablet then login via your laptop for the spatial/motion exercise.

Good luck and pay attention to the time remaining. I had a dog be sick at my feet during a 2 or 3 minute 5 question exercise and only manage 2 or 3 questions before it timed out. So I've probably ruled myself out of the Dublin based assessments now.

Just finished all assessments and video interview. By far the most challenging assessments I've done, the L3 and FTE aptitudes seem like a doddle in comparison. The arithmetic and verbal reasoning are fairly straightforwards however. The video interview is only 4 questions, and seemed quite informal, nevertheless, still felt a little nervous, but again the questions asked are as expected.

mboqseif, i wouldn't recommend on doing the assessments on a tablet, and PC and mouse works a lot better.

Best of luck to all!
I've had this too - mine actually came up with an error window where I could report it so I've sent an email to that ([email protected]) but might send one to AL as well if no reply..

Also, you can send your emails to [email protected] and [email protected].

I had a response within 90 minutes with a fix to one of my issues.

I had an email saying they fixed the problem in the first link, does anybody know what the video assessment part is like?

Did anyone find the Spatial Orientation test confusing? The example shown didn't make sense to me.

Right then, that is out of the way. The interview was interesting! Initially i tried to use my laptop but neither the sound or camera worked! Then the iPad, the sound was a bit poor so had to use my gaming headset which is going to look interesting when they look at it . It was actually just a bit of a replacement of the face to face bit they would do on an assessment day. Personally I would have preferred a face to face version where you can get ideas from the response of the interviewer but hey ho.

The tests are exactly the same as previous years and I think i may have made the same errors but fingers crossed it is ok. With the maths questions, most are fairly simple but there are times where you will wish you had more than 3 days to get prepared.

All in all, this probably felt tougher than it actually was, make sure you have a responsive mouse and a good surface to use it on.

Good luck everyone!!!

I did them all, took me about 100 minutes. I suggest you to solve the tests from last to first. I am not satisfied with my performances at all.
I wish a good luck to everyone.

Fair play and thanks for sharing! not going to ask you what the questions were because that wouldn't be fair on yourself but did each interview question have to be done within a certain time limit?

hi shamrock

it was 40 seconds prep and a minimum of 1 minute to a max of 1:30 to give your answer.

I just completed mine, did terrible on the maths section and not too great on hand and eye co-ord. At least with this application you donít have to fork out £300 pounds for the initial interview.

Good luck everybody hope you do better than I did ��

Yes. I thought everything else went pretty ok, but that section was awful! I failed the example question and didn't understand why I was wrong and I took an educated guess for the rest in that section. Probably got 0 tbh. Really unhappy about the explanation on that one!

Same for me. I failed this one. Didn't understand directions at the moment... Now it's clear but it's too late...

Yes but, as someone noted above, it's not advised as servers issues from overload are quite common on the eve of deadlines..
