I thought this was really well worded and the writer took the time to explain things, sometimes the truth is a harsh reality. Good post :D
Yeah, I was surprised I was told to lighten up and be an adult over my post. I was going to defend myself to the OP but I didn't want any more drama on the thread. I was as supportive and positive as I could have been. I've been in Nicholas1989's shoes before when I failed the interview, so I knew he was already feeling down, why kick him down further. I offered statistics, support, and finished off with 1 bit of criticism

I addressed his comments/concerns one by one, IE:

1) "am I stupid for failing the interview"
No, 64% of people fail the interview, myself included, now you have an idea of what to expect for next time. 54% of people fail the exam, but you passed, be proud of yourself, you're not stupid.

Another interesting statistic from the Evaluation

"On average 20,439 people apply to the CBSA per year, only 294 of those people will be accepted into training."

2) "am I not destined to be a CBSA officer"
Maybe this is why I got told to lighten up and be an adult I guess. The whole "destined" word just was so weird... This was my one bit of criticism as it screamed entitlement, as an applicant, I do not like the idea of other applicants thinking they deserve a job more than me because of "destiny"

I think my contribution of statistics and support for him far outweigh my one little moment of "huh?"

Thanks for your support, Jean! Wild to see you still haven't had a Psych invite.
sorry bud. the lighten up comment was intended for the other guy, i was agreeing with you.
ive lurked this thread for some time and he was making similar comments back when he wrote his OTEE as well, talking about how stupid the exam was and how he thought he failed it etc etc..

I'm also sorry that I misinterpreted your message. I'm just so used to hostility on this forum, not used to someone supporting me for once.

Thanks for clearing things up! :D

Has anyone else heard about August intake. I’m assuming that if you haven’t heard yet winter term is the next option.

Hey Guys! hope all is well with everyone! Just wondering and I know everyone has a different timeline but generally speaking how long after till you hear back with an answer stating whether you passed or not?

Thanks!

For the interview or the OTEE? I discovered the results of my interview in exactly 5 business days BOTH times I did it! From the previous history, the results of the OTEE are pretty inconsistent, I can only speak for myself but it took me 4 weeks to get my results.
