Anyhow and just to let you know I have sent an email to FRONTEX previous week about the possibility of postponing the procedure but they haven't answered to me yet...
I imagine that Fx will contact you for further instructions.

Thanks Brubru. Its not official yet so lets not frustrate anyone. Even in Italy where everything is banned, you can still travel if you prove you have a reason to travel and a relevant medical paper saying you are clear from coronavirus.
Guys, this is bigger than us. Lets keep calm and move until further notice arrives. Do not drive crazy.

The European Commission and the EU’s border agency, Frontex, today each confirmed a coronavirus case within their ranks.

“As the virus is spreading, we have a colleague in the Commission who has tested positive, but is doing well under the current circumstances,” Commissioner Johannes Hahn, who is responsible for human resources, wrote to staff in an email.

Thanks steliospk
Wise words!

I can only join the disorientation and saddness fot this decision from Frontex
but also certainly to the appreciation for you that others have already expressed.

Keep studying French

I think maybe FRONTEX should move a team of 4 to 6 people from one country to another instead of sending us to Poland. Every State member can bring support and facilities for physical tests and interviews. Two, three days in the countries of the candidates would solve the problem, if not I see very difficult to carry on the selection process and even more complicated starting the trainning on the scheduled dates. Just my thoughts. Good luck to everyone.

In my view there is any hope at all that things (selection processs, training cours, deployement etc.) can go as planned! The question is not if delay is expected but how long it will be.

Pff, i am so sorry for you mate. I also declined the invitation for the physical tests due to some health issues (nothing serious though). In a way it is better because i was scheduled in that period when they discovered someone from comission had Corona virus. A romanian border police officer came back with it (heard it on news) and contaminated others.
i hope things will settle down and we will be given another opportunity. I feel your dissapoitment, really. I wish you the best of luck and lets hope we can achieve our goals next time!

Guys,
I have a question about the English test.
The first part (core test) contains grammar, reading and listening and all these three parts have %.
Do you need more than 65% in each separately or the total percentage must be > 65 in order to be considered as “level passed”?
Have a good week and stay safe.

Hi Ross, I just got today my english test results. I went through it the 5th of March. I suppose that you have to reach the minimum percentage of 65% in each subject, grammar, reading and listening as they give you three different %. For the writing and speaking you meet the level or not, there is not percentage. Hope being helpful. Good luck.
