No Rejection, No video Interview

Thats quite an assumption to make. Fortunately, when I started my career, the barrier to entry was low - set at GCSE. Had it been higher, I like would have ended up going a different route and not commanding a ship. The barrier is set low to draw talent, not necessarily because the course is easy. If you think getting a ship captains licence is a breeze, I can assure you its not!

Does anyone know how they are reviewing video interviews? Is it automated or is an actual person watching them?

All the instructions and times are given to you before you actually start recording or anything.

Guys, how many questions are in the interview? Do you have more chances to record your answers?

Yes, you can so just go for it. Telling you things like that gives you an unfair advantage.

Now that applications have closed, any thoughts on how many applications they received? It seemed to be really well publicised with even news outlets like the Evening Standard picking up on it and they published a video starring Emma Raducanu engaged in a bit of a q and a.

I wonder if they will tell people who get to later stages what the stats were!

Here, here... very similar to yourself, I'm a 40 something white, hetrosexual male and have made if throgh the initial elements of the process. Comiserations to those who havent made it through.

Is anybody else still awaiting an update from their tests? I applied on the 19th and managed to get through to the checking test. Iíve had nothing since in terms of an invite to interview or an unsuccessful email?

I presumed theyíd be going through applications in date orderÖ However noticed a few people apply after me, but already been invited to interview.

Just wondering if anyone else is in the same position?

Hi, applied yesterday and completed the three initial exams. Just wondering when I will be notified on any further interview or assessments. Is it usually instant or does it take a few days. I completed my Maths exams and only received the checking exam an hour after completion. Any advice, help or update would be massively appreciated lol! been sat on the edge of my seat all day!
