Hi Murtiza

I did the application and am going for my telephone interview soon. I just thought I could give u a tip for the application if needed.

When answering the questions, make sure the examples you use are specific i.e. if they talk about a time when you adapted to responsibilities etc try to only refer to one particular time and then discuss it well (how it affected you, how it affected others, how you helped others from your experience, how you developed etc)

The reason I say this is that when I answered them I refered to a few examples and from what I understand you cannot refer to examples from the app in the interview. This limits my choices and I am not able to prepare my best examples because I referred to them (slightly) in the app

Just thought that might help. Best of luck with the app if you haven’t done it… they are pain staking!!
