I got my email asking for payment on Friday, and a friend of mine got his yesterday. He did the online application a day after I did, so it seems like they're going through them in order of who applied, could just be a coincidence though.

I don't suppose anyone knows when they intend to start the aptitude tests?

How long did it take Pieces? I applied on Saturday and haven't received anything yet, starting to stress.

I applied on the Monday that it opened, heard back on the Friday, did my payment the following day and then got invited to do my test 4 days after that. So from time of application to assessment date is 15 days.

I don't think there's any reason to stress, they seem to be going through these quite quick, I'm sure you'll hear soon.

No it's the good old colour in the black circle on the test paper again.

The recruitment for more females is evident with more females visible in numbers at the testing.

Does anyone have any idea when the last group going through the profiling testing is and how long after that will we be notified whether we have successfully (or not) made it through to the PAT1?

I completed my testing on Tuesday 4th (afternoon). Obviously they need to collate everyone's results to pick the top 4 - 500 to progress?

Cheers

14 days of testing with around 160 each day so I'd say around 2300. I wonder how many they will take to the interview. Last time they took a small amount and put the rest into the interview pool... They mignt take more to take into account people failing the PAT1.

So SAMFS have changed the order of stages in the application? Do you think this is to speed up the process of getting the first recruit course filled as well as culling for the right applicants? From reading previous years forums it does seem like a very long winded process.. first time applying for me!  :-P

Not yet. I heard there is still testing this week. Only tested a couple of days last week I'm led to believe.

MFS email: beep tests between 15th and 18th of November (with pass/fail on the personality by the 8th). Interviews in the following week.

More time to wait...more time to prepare, but it looks like things will progress rapidly beyond PAT1.
