So, you have a grammar section with 20 questions with optional answers. Sometimes can be more difficult than you ve practiced other times can be easier. It's your luck.
Then you have two texts to read and respond some 7 questions about it. Pretty tricky sometimes.
Then you have two audio files to listen and answer some 5 questions per each.
At the end of each section you will see how you scored.
You will also have a countdown clock measuring your time.
After finishing this part you will receive a score that needs to be higher than 65%.
You may have a short break before you start the next part. Speaking and writing. 10 minutes each section.
It's the easiest part. If you have scored over 70% in the previous section you have nothing to be worry about.
For this part you will receive the results after a couple of days.
This is where I got so far.
And I'm grateful for it.
Good luck! 😉🤞

Thanks a million for your explanation

May I ask you about the writing section? Was it an essay or a letter? Do you remember the topic ?

I can’t see how they’d be eligible if that’s the only citizenship they hold - check post no. 3 from a man in the know, and the criteria does say applicants must be citizens of an EU country.

Applicants must be citizens of an EU country on the date of their application. Frontex clearly said UK citizens will be eligible if they apply before the Brexit.

About the writing section,
All they want to test u about is if u know how to be precise and exact, lets say sending an informal email. The essay is not that long and the issue is usually pros,cons and your opinion/ an opinion essay etc, as in any B2 exam. The CEFR provides specific info on the writing procedure. No right or wrong answers. Tracktest mentions " Two tasks assessing written interaction (forms, notes, messages) and written English production (reports and short essays, up to 150 words)".
So, as previously mentioned, if u hit a good score, there will be no concerns.
*Topics may not be shared due to quality controls and equal opportunities principle.

Hello,

Does anybody know if there are emails still to be sent to candidates to take the English test?
Has anybody heard from Frontex this week?

Nothing so far... seems like they are doing it on purpose ;-) they probably saw our recent conversation about the emails being sent out again from Monday and they thought ”Hold on let’s make them wait another week, that’s gonna cool them down a bit” ;-)

I was expecting that this week they would continue sending out emails.
But is doesn't look like it.
We'll just have to wait and see.
