Hi, has anyone who has applied received any response yet for this competition? If yes what did you receive as an answer, are you able to schedule the exam yet, etc.?

We can have this thread as ongoing for any questions regarding this process.


Hi! no news here.. maybe they

Hi! no news here.. maybe they will wait until September? they already have delays with a lot of selection proc... 

I also applied to this one,

tripac_154506 Fri, 05/27/2022 - 16:49

I also applied to this one, for field 3. You can check the status of the procedure .. on my case, the Eligibility checks are on going being that there were 769 (!!!) applications for this field.

I agree. It is a lot of open

robert.polak_135827 Sun, 05/29/2022 - 14:05

I agree. It is a lot of open positions and probably a lot of applications. It was similar competition 2 years ago. If there is someone who knows the timeline from EPSO answer to testing to first interview it would be greatly appreciated.

Any news about this competition?

I think after more than 3

Jo Thu, 07/07/2022 - 15:40

I think after more than 3 months without any news, it's time that EPSO decide to communicate us the reason of this delay, it should be a good practice and,  in the respect of our summer holidays (July, August, September) I hope they organise the CBT as of October. What do you think?


JIFCON_94476 Mon, 07/11/2022 - 12:40


No news yet...  in fact I don't expect anything in July or August... maybe September to reserve a place for CBTs in October? 

There are some messages that it seems they want to change the way the organise tests, interviews, etc and agilize the process.. I don't know if they will apply to this or in the future... 

Let's see...

Hi guys,

Hi guys,

harryk87_88615 Mon, 10/03/2022 - 17:46

Are u sure that you passed the TS and not the eligibiity checks?

Misread the above. Please

harryk87_88615 Mon, 10/03/2022 - 18:00

Misread the above. Please skip and ignore :)

Has anyone recieved anynews

robert.polak_135827 Mon, 12/12/2022 - 00:33

Has anyone recieved anynews on this competition or the other ones that where in this group? I see no movment in last two months and it is going extremly slow.

indeed, so far no news, it is

gasrycooper_159215 Fri, 12/16/2022 - 16:19

indeed, so far no news, it is incredible.

 Among other things, they are also unable to adequately inform applicants with reasonable explanations. If someone writes to them, they respond in a standard way without providing useful information. Honestly, in my opinion, this kind of behavior is not very professional. They don't even have a social page with which to communicate easily with them. In respect of the candidates, they should change their strategy, at least on the communication aspects.

Still no news? anyone?

ozana.popescu Mon, 12/19/2022 - 18:19

Still no news? anyone?

I applied in March and got a letter in September that I passed to the next phase "talent screener", and afterwards nothing for 3 more months... this is unbelievable... I'm not sure anymore if I want to work there... with this level of reaction...

Please share your thoughts. Did you apply to other competions where you got faster feedback? or it's the same for all of them?

Hello. I applied before for

robert.polak_135827 Mon, 01/02/2023 - 03:41

Hello. I applied before for one AD position and it went quite fast. It was also multiple positions (50 I think). It was maybe 3 months between end day for application and invitation for testing. I am not sure what is the reason for the delay but when I went through some forums and viewed exam questions and things like that I am quite confident that people who work at EPSO never actually held a job somewhere in private sector and that they and their competence is most likely the main problem. Maybe I am wrong.

I think EPSO (or who is

gasrycooper_159215 Wed, 01/11/2023 - 09:51

I think EPSO (or who is managing this competition) has 0 respect towards candidates. After almost 1 year they didn't explain the "real" reasons of this delay. This makes us understand the total absence of seriousness of these competitions in the entire process, from publication to recruitment. It's just a waste of time...

I have recieved message of

robert.polak_135827 Fri, 03/17/2023 - 12:37

I have recieved message of "Admission to the next phase of the competition", and on EPSO portal it is saying that around 200 people have moved to next round. Now we have to wait for invitations for testing, I am not sure how long it will take for that one. Maybe someone has more info?

Does anyone know what are the

danijela.vuk_90923 Tue, 03/21/2023 - 14:19

Does anyone know what are the disqualifying situations during the tests from other remote EPSO competitions experiences?

For example, would I be disqualified if I am doing the test in the office meeting room, where there are screens with cameras present (for video conferencing) and even if they are shut down or covered with a cloth?

Or would I be disqualified if I am doing the test in a small booth at my work, but made of glass. 

Or if I have stars in my living room that are leading to space above and below, but no doors between the spaces?

Is it possible to choose to do the tests at the test center somewhere?


Those are good questions,

robert.polak_135827 Thu, 03/30/2023 - 15:30

Those are good questions, maybe ask them in a new topic so it is more visible and you get the answer.

Hi everyone,

Moonask Mon, 03/27/2023 - 10:05

Hi everyone,

I have been accepted to the Assessment Center and I just starting to prepare for the different test. This is my first time doing a competition and I'm a bit stressed with the different exams that have to be done.

I would like to propose you to make a study group to prepare this competition. Although this is a competition and only a small number of candidates will be laurate, I believe that we can work together to share information and motivation. Also, there are 5 different fields, so many of us can share information on how to prepare for the competition, but we will not be competitors.

Anyone intersted (including laurate candidates to share their experience, which will be most welcome) send my an email to moonask73@gmail.com

Good luck to you all!

Has anyone received

robert.polak_135827 Thu, 03/30/2023 - 15:31

Has anyone received invitation for testing. I see in the news on this portal that invitations where sent but I have not received one yet?

defelix Thu, 03/30/2023 - 16:37

No invitation so far; where did you see that inviaions have been sent?

They have published an

Denisa Wed, 04/05/2023 - 23:32

They have published an interval for the next tests but no notification in the account or by email. This interval is for one week. Will they let us specify which day we can take the CBT tests and the case study test or they will grant us a date?

I saw also notification, but

pbb_94500 Sat, 04/08/2023 - 22:04

I saw also notification, but not received the invitation yet either... did you get one? 

Hi everyone,

Moonask Thu, 03/30/2023 - 17:22

Hi everyone,

I haven't received any invitation for testing yet.

This is my first partitipation in a EPSO process and I am a bit stressed with the comments I read before about the process in the Assesment Center.

I would like to create a study group to share information and provide motivation. If you are also interested, please send my a message to moonask73@gmail.com

Laureates will be most welcomed!!

Good luck for everybody!

After waiting 1 year for an

Denisa Fri, 04/14/2023 - 19:24

After waiting 1 year for an answer to the application, it is absolutely incredible that we are announced to have CBT and case study tests in exactly 2 fixed days, mandatory in remote mode with no possibility of going to a test center to take the exams. With all the conditions they mention for the desk and room where you take the exam, I need to reorganise my house (cover open shelves, remove any movable furniture and electronic devices from the room, put curtains on all windows etc). Any small reason is a good excuse to be disqualified and adds an extra unnecessary risk to take proper testing. Is it just me feeling frustrated with such a low treatment? Or maybe it is done on purpose to discourage the candidates to continue?

this type of proctor exams 

pirate2023 Thu, 04/20/2023 - 00:48

this type of proctor exams  are like this (even for SANS, ISC2 etc). nothing to worry about.

by the way i tried to book but there is no available time. I will try to call tomorrow. did anyone manage to book a time for the test?

You can now book. There are

JIFCON_94476 Thu, 04/20/2023 - 01:07

You can now book. There are some crazy times like 3 a.m. Brussels time...  for some reason it was not working (at least for me). But now you can. USE CHROME! (I got problems with android and Safari)...

yes! just managed to book...

pirate2023 Thu, 04/20/2023 - 09:41

yes! just managed to book... not many available timeslots indeed

hi. I just got an invitation

pirate2023 Fri, 04/14/2023 - 22:58

hi. I just got an invitation for the next phase for the test. i think there were internal discussions for changing some aspects which caused the delay.

hi all. did you take the

pirate2023 Fri, 05/05/2023 - 06:30

hi all. did you take the exams? how did you find the questions? personally i ran out of time in the abstract and numberical reasoning and answered a couple of questions using instinct :)

What about the Case Study?

Bertels.Bart_152994 Fri, 05/05/2023 - 12:28

What about the Case Study? this is scheduled the very same day as the reasoning tests, with only a 20 min break in between :-S

Hi All,

okyalos Fri, 05/05/2023 - 12:40

Hi All,

How was the test? Is the nature of numerical and abstract similar to eutraining simulation tests? What about the case study? Is it related to an IT subject or it was a general subject ?


Hi all,

okyalos Fri, 05/05/2023 - 13:23

Hi all,

How was the test ? How was the nature of numerical and abstract questions compared to eutraining simulation tests ? Regarding Case Study? How was it ? Was the subject related to IT or a general one from EU?



Hello pirate2023 and all, 

virsulis@gmail.com Mon, 05/08/2023 - 18:51

Hello pirate2023 and all, 

how about use case excercie for this exam? Is it a typical one as for the rest EPSO concours (writting essay), or there is something specific? e.g. like asnwering open questions? Thanks 

I think it was a typical one.

pirate2023 Thu, 05/25/2023 - 08:38

I think it was a typical one. That was the first time I participated in EPSO exam. No open questions... i'm waiting for the results and the outcome of the Case study. Anybody else participated? It's good to hear other opinions. Cheers
