I received yesterday the much-expected email from EPSO, informing me that I successfully passed the competition EPSO/CAST/P/13/2017 Political Affairs / EU policies.
First things first, many thanks to EUTraining.eu and your team! I can honestly say that I think I have purchased all of the questions available for mathematical and abstract reasoning. So it is good I passed the tests since I wouldn't have been able to train anymore through your website anyway...
Second, for those specialised in international affairs and EU politics, you might often spot interesting jobs (contractual positions) offered by FPI, the EEAS or DG Near, so making it into the corresponding reserve list is always a smart move. It is valid for 10 years and gives you then plenty of opportunities in the future.
Third: indeed, do train. On the day of the exam, stress and fear, combined with the extremely slow software you will use, make you second-guess and lose time. So having built-in reflexes for mathematical and abstract reasoning is necessary. The software is not user-friendly (in the maths section, for instance, the calculator is slow to move around, hiding some of the answers available) and depending on the strength of the Wi-Fi network you're using, precious seconds are easily lost, pilling up and eventually you are not able to answer all questions).
Good luck to one and all!
