In the vacancy notices for different roles which are published on the official website it is directly expressed that Frontex "is in the process of significantly increasing the size of its staff". Without any doubt this includes category 1 of the standing corps.

I am not allowed to paste links as I don't have enough posts on this forum but you can visit open vacancies on the Frontex official website, open any vacancy notice (e.g. Heads of Sectors in Standing Corps Preparedness and Deployment Unit), download the vacancy notice file and in its section 1. Background you can find this quote I have mentioned above.

I know what you mean. Yes, that's right. I though that there was more information apart from that in other more public place.

Anyway, thank you very much for your reply Baczek.

Hello everyone,

I am sorry to tell you than I am not Greek. Neither I have more information to reply to your questions apart from which it is published on the official website of Frontex.

Kind regards.

Does anybody know the minimum quantity of words which me must write in each exercise of the writing part? Ten minutes for two exercises B2 level seems quite short, in comparison with Cambridge University exams for the same level (80 minutes).

Thank you very much in advance for any information.

For each of the writing task you need to produce minimum 100 words.

This is how those English tests are constructed. Of course in theory they can change the structure entirely this year but in my opinion it is highly unlikely - minimum 100 words for each writing task is the most probable scenario.

I understand, but could you give me your example to understand why you claim that this is the way those tests are constructed.

Thank you very much beforehand, once more.

English tests are provided by external contractor i.e. TrackTest and this company generally uses standardized tests (standardized in terms of structure of course). These standards for the writing part are as follows: 10 minutes in total, 2 writing tasks and minimum 100 words per each task. That's everything I know.

As far as I know, in the website it is published the following: "the writing exam consists of two English writing tasks, usually one focused on written interaction and one focused on written production (report and short essays). Each task has a minimum word limit (60- 150 words, depending on the level and type of task)...".

From which place do you take your previous afirmation? I know that you must be thinking to kill me. As you see I'm especially worried with the writing part, so that's the reason why I've asked as much questions about that.

Thank you very much, once more.

For example watch this video:
and at 2:50 minute mark you can notice information "100 words remaining" which clearly indicates that you need to write at least 100 words. This is an example you have requested. As I said before I cannot guarantee it and it's ONLY the most probable scenario in my opinion.
