You have time until 27/4 to make an application for the competition of Contract Agents ! I participated to the previous one, two years ago, but I failed...

The statistics about the applications before the validation...

http://www.europa.eu/epso/cast27/pdf/CA ... TITLES.pdf

Don't forget that you have to validate your participation !

Do you have any comment to make related to these statistics ?

Yesterday I had the exams in the EPSO - CAST 27 center in Athens...

42 degrees hot and couldn't have a bottle of water in the examination center !!!

I have chosen the Field II, as secretary and the thing that impressed me was that in the section of european knowledge questions they were repeated !! what do I mean ? There were two questions, EXACTLY THE SAME that were repeated !

A BIG MISTAKE for the whole procedure !!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if I am the exception but the system....

A lot of good luck to you, gvel!

What about the competence test? How was it?

I think it's not normal to don't allow the candidates carry some water with them with such temperatures...

My good friend Gvel, this is a good reason to appeal against EPSO. It seems that we will start loving ASEP with these guys... They get a huge salary doing nothing and breaking our nerves... In my case yesterday, the examination center was ok (very strong AC) but the EU questions made me really angry, they were not for a regular person...

at least you didn't see the same question twice !!!!!

Well, when there is huge competition the difficulty it's enormous and without limit...

I agree that for some questions of the IV level even the employees themselves don't know the answers !

However, I had some news that make me try to keep my joy, they accepted the documents I sent about the linguistic administrators competition, the final exams are due 12 October!!! Yeeeessssssss

Congratulations Dimitris!! Brush up your french for October!

I had my CAST27 on the 25th in Athens as well! No water allowed, it's true. Verbal was quite easy, numerical so so but for the EU knowledge, I didn't really like my questions. I have done so many competitions so far that I see the same questions again and again...Had no time to study really - was in Brussels for interviews.

We should all meet to discuss these competitions!

Thanks Fay. For me my first priority now is my holidays and from 6 August I start my preparation... Of course we should arrange a meeting all together before an EU body "absorb" you... :D

I was successful in the CAST27 exams and I have been "placed in the database of eligible candidates for the profile in which [I] took [the] tests". I have also filled in the online CV, as required.

Does anyone have any idea of a) the chances that an eligible candidate be selected from the CAST database and b) how long a time this typically takes?

Thanks!
