When I went through the process in 2018 it took about 3 weeks to get my exam results back. Mine was in person though so if they are doing them online now it could be a faster turn around.

Agreed. The test was more in depth then I was expecting. Unfortunately getting the results back is all I can think about.

Good luck everyone.

There has been several references in this thread to three tests that will help screen the candidates.

I'm aware of the General Knowledge Exam (took it last week) and the GCT2 but cant find anything on a third test that is mentioned several times. Any insight or information on the third test would be greatly appreciated.

That would be the WCPT-351 exam. There's a lot of resources on it online

I received the invite as well!
I also received the invite, but mine came on the 31st at 1400, so I wasn't able to do it. Hopefully they'll let me have a shot at it.

Nothing Yet. Based on this thread and previous replies it normally takes about 3 weeks. I'm hopeful we will hear something this week.

Hello Everyone!

I haven't received any results yet from the prior knowledge exam. Anyone else in the same boat? As the exam was online I would imagine no news is good news. I figure if someone did not pass they would have been notified by now as the exam was multiple choice and the DFO should get the results pretty quickly. That being said I'm curious on peoples thoughts when it comes to timelines and what the next step will be?

Cheers,
Zach

Good question, I am guessing whether you passed or not we will all hear on the same day, fyi I haven't heard either....

I would like to think no news is good news as well. I haven't heard anything either. Also, wherever these are being marked I don't know what kind of COVID restrictions are in place there that may make some delays. Even if it's electronic, those people may be looking after other duties due to people working from home, or they are working from home and don't have access to everything. Either way im still patiently waiting.

Looks like I was screened out! In the second part of my email they mention that some people were sent an exam in error. I'm wondering if anyone else received this email? I'm not sure if I failed the exam or was sent the email in error.

I received notice I was sent the exam in error. Not cool. Nothing like getting your hopes up. Well I guess the positive is I don’t have to think about it for a while.
