PUMPED. :)



How long was your interview? and did you receive your results for the WCPT & GTC1 tests before the interview.?


I had my interview on the 10th. It lasted 3.5h instead of the 2 expected. I did not get my results until 4-5 months after i wrote the tests, 2 weeks before my interview.

Hi Everyone,

I just got invited for an interview this week, and i'm at a loss as to where i should find some prep questions. I only did my exams two weeks ago and didn't expect to hear back so quickly. Any advice would be really helpful!

Just was informed that I got screened out on my references. I know that they were good so anybody have any clue where I went wrong?

One was a former employer from 1 1/2 years ago (Haven't been working due to completing my Crim degree) and the other was an IPO that was supervising my most recent directed studies? How good do the references have to be?

Really put off by all of this and wondering how I could improve them...

I'm really sorry to hear that kkicked. What a lousy spot to be screened out. This is the first time I have heard about anyone having this problem, although maybe it happens quite often. My references have just been checked and now I am starting to worry. I wonder if HR will give you any feedback on your references if you contact them. It is certainly worth a try.
