Well personally, that assessment day was horrible. For some reason i couldnt shake the nerves, and thats not like me. First of all we did the colour blind "test" really it was just naming colours. Next we had a small video presentation which was okay.i went straight to the skills test which was hard enough for some people to struggle out but i felt that was my strongest one. Immediately had both my interviews and felt like people were trying to catch me out a bit. I dont know might have been my nerves again. Finally did a maths and english test which i absolutely flunked. I recently passed my gcse in maths at a c grade but it said i was working towards level 1 when the guy next to me was working to a level 3? So thats knocked my confidence big time. Gutted. But will be told in 5 days either way. Fingers still crossed
Ah unlucky, mate, but I'm sure you did just fine! Wait and hear what they say!
Re: the maths and english bit, I don't think it's a test per se but more just to see where you are at, as others have said. I'm curious that someone got told they were level 3 though as ours maxed out at level 2 I'm sure. I have an engineering degree and am really particular about grammar, finishing both parts pretty quickly, but it still only mentioned level 2 or over. To be fair the calculators on the laptops don't really work, so maybe that's my problem haha.
If you were friendly and personable, gave a decent account of yourself, and with your background etc. I'm sure you'll get the nod. Fingers crossed!
