Hey all,

Regarding the gct and English tests, if I pass one and fail the other do I have to re-write both or redo the one that I failed?

Wrote the test on May 9th, and still waiting for my results.

Thanks

Was is April 14th in Mississauga?


It was around the same date, but in Windsor. Although I feel good about my interview performance, I'm really not getting my hopes up.

While there are exceptions, normally you'd have gotten an email regarding the next steps by now, and then in a month get an actual confirmation. Not looking good, but don't give up quite yet

If you fail one, you'll automatically get an email about 180 days after the fail confirmation for a re-invite to testing. Just email them back and remind them that you passed one and will be re-writing the other. You do not have to re-write both (thank goodness).

I figure they would send an email either way though?

I have an insanely busy month with June, what with online training for CBSA, an 8 day gun/use of force class with my current job, finding and moving into a new place, mixed with my second job...regardless of all this, I am looking forward to working with everyone in intake 8A (and hopefully I pass my PARE and will be seeing you all at Rigaud).

Wow, hadn't realized we were only 3 days away. May did go by fast. Can't wait for July to come!



Yeah, since the invite... time flew by real quick! Might have to do with me being on vacation the whole month though haha

Has anyone with their 8A invite been contacted by the CBSA College yet regarding OITP online? I know it says by May 27, 2016, but just curious if we are all in the same boat.

Looking forward to meeting you all in July.

No. That was just one class in cohort 8a that got bumped to 8b because they added a french class to 8a.
Two more classes to be invited for 8b :)
