Re: Ask the CBSA!

Does anyone know if people fail oitp at rigaud? Are there second chances if you do poorly on testings? Thanks Yes they do. There are second chances on the written testing, provided upper management believe that you are worth a second chance. Don't go in expecting to get more than one chance to pass...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Does a barely pass score on either written exams mean low chance of being selected or have people been selected despite having a low pass score on written exams? My WTC score was 30/50 and the pass mark was a 30. I am going to Rigaud in Jan so I don't think you have anything to worry about. Always ...
