[quote=""Seabie""]If I got 80% will I probably get an interview?[/quote]

The email states that "entry into the applicant pool does not guarantee an interview"

To me this means they will be looking at your resume as well as your overall grade in order to make the decision.

[quote=""HFD1724""]Not sure how Vaughan is going to pick the 20 right away. Not sure if they'll go based off test scores only or if it's test scores and a review of qualifications.[/quote]

Pretty sure it's a review of qualifications once you've passed the threshold.

Otherwise why set such a low threshold ?

I've heard of some placed taking from the top down. So if there's 750 in the pool and they are looking to hire 3 classes from the pool, the top 250 have their resumes reviewed for interviews for the first class, middle 250 for the 2nd class and bottom 250 for the third. Don't know if they are doing that but just another option.

Good luck to everyone. In the end all the matters is if we get the call.

I still have not got an email, not sure if this is good news or bad news.

I haven't received anything yet. I got 88 on the test so I'm hoping for an interview. I heard they were hoping for a September start for the first 20 recruits.

how did everybody else do on the test?
