Frontex AST 4 Projects and activities support officers | EU Training

Hi, does anyone guess (or know) what would be the score to be shortlisted for Frontex AST4 Projects and activities support officers ? Best regards

It depends. If someone goes

It depends. If someone goes through the vacancy notice understands that there are factors which determine the lowest score needed to be included in the reserve list. 

1. The years of experience to be taken into account (very important starting from 9 to 12 years of professional experience after the minimum qualification required)

2. The number of successful candidates reached the pass marks as well as the highest ones in descending order (300). Usually in such competitions you need 80-85% (overall to secure admission to next phase subject to any other requirements as posed within the vacancy. However we have seen scores as low as 75%.

So if someone has an overall mark above 70 out of 92  has high possibility to be included in the reserve list.

We do not know the number of candidates validated their applications and meet the minimum requirements.

Any other opinions? Could help others to understand the process. 

Why was there a new testing period and such a delay ? strange isnt it?

They might not have had

They might not have had enough candidates so they put in an additional testing phase.. I got 77/92, hopefully thats enough..who knows. Does anybody know how many applied? 

I do not know how many

baio_na_92086 Wed, 07/08/2020 - 08:41

I do not know how many candidates took the test, so it is difficult to make a guess. My percentage of right answers was 86,4%. 

My result was 83% Wed, 07/08/2020 - 12:07

My result was 83%

We could make the cut in the

baio_na_92086 Wed, 07/08/2020 - 18:07

We could make the cut in the 300 list, but they will assess our resumes for additional tests and interviews. good luck!

Strange percentage.. so you

eigner.basil_139426 Sun, 08/09/2020 - 22:26

Strange percentage.. so you got 79/92...? Just wondering. Hope you reach the next phase!

Yes, I got 79,5/92. Thank you

baio_na_92086 Tue, 08/18/2020 - 14:56

Yes, I got 79,5/92. Thank you, I hope you'll be in the first 300 too. They published the new timeline of the recruiting process:

Hello! Can I ask the question

krystyna.bakhtina_150255 Wed, 07/06/2022 - 00:23

Hello! Can I ask the question regarding this competition? what the tests looked like? 

Hi to everyone, hope you are

Hi to everyone, hope you are all in good health!

Does anyone have a clue (or know) when about the publication of eligibility results is going to take place?

This is the 4th or 5th time that the time schedules are not met (moved back), and considering the fact that the only thing required is putting the 300 highest scores in a descending order, this seems very awkward, even bearing in mind the covid problems or the EPSO working times.

I myself have no idea. It

eigner.basil_139426 Mon, 11/02/2020 - 18:50

I myself have no idea. It could be a very good job, but the procedure doesn't seem to be working out. It's a pity really. All we can do is be patient.

Just out of pure curiosity: I

eigner.basil_139426 Mon, 11/02/2020 - 21:38

Just out of pure curiosity: I had pretty high rankings on practically all parts of the tests; the most difficult part was the abstract one- only got 6/10.
Can anybody relate to that?
Hope we will be informed soon about the further procedure.

Hi, I have not high rankings Sat, 11/28/2020 - 22:57

Hi, I have not high rankings on all tests, but at abstract one i got 10/10. Numerical reasoning and Situational judgment are others tests that i think i did good. I am not strong with language... So, my mind is made for logic and abstrat, not to have a good conversation. :)

Hi, so what was your overall

eigner.basil_139426 Wed, 12/09/2020 - 18:34

Hi, so what was your overall result?
Kind regards.

Frontex updated the timeline

baio_na_92086 Thu, 11/26/2020 - 19:34

Frontex updated the timeline of the recruiting process again.

Does anybody know when we

eigner.basil_139426 Wed, 12/09/2020 - 18:37

Does anybody know when we will be informed? Or have they already set up a list?
Such a pity things are not seeming to be working out..
I don't understand why...

I don't think there is a list

baio_na_92086 Sat, 12/12/2020 - 08:06

I don't think there is a list already. We should be informed via our epso accounts, where we got our scores. I presume the delay is caused by the pandemic. Let's stay confident and good luck to all of us.

Hi to everyone!

Dear all, Thu, 02/25/2021 - 11:51

Dear all,

I took the liberty of creating a facebook group for all of  us, who took part in the competition. I think it is a nice way to stay in contact and to update each other on the progress of their application.

So, if you are interested, pleaes join on Facebook: FRONTEX AST4 Projects and Activities Support Officers (RCT-2019-00022)

I hope to meet all of you in person soon.

Best regards

Any of you experienced in a remote competency test? Can you share you experience? Are there open qs or is it an essey? What precisely is tested?



Hi Iwona, Wed, 03/03/2021 - 16:41

Hi Iwona,

did you mean a "competency based interview"? Please elaborate a bit more.




iwonasylwia Wed, 03/03/2021 - 16:57


it is not an interview, but a test organised via computer. more i cannot say, becasue more i don't know. that is why am asking for your experience. it is going to be 50 min max. that's all info that i have.
