Could anyone who has done the CMS video interview please shed some light on how many questions there are, how much time there is to prepare and answer, and what styles of questions are asked (competency, situational, or motivational)? I have been struggling to find any up to date info. Thanks everyone!
4 questions - 60 seconds to prep and 60 to answer. You manually move onto the next question though so you can have a 5 min break in between.
For question prep, always why cms/general competency and situational (imagine you were a trainee and your colleague did xyz”
:)

Immensely helpful. Now I can properly organise my preparation. Thanks a lot! :)

I meant outside UK
Although not impossible, it is highly unlikely a firm will get a visa for a vacation scheme for you. The cost and process needed would be more than the vacation scheme itself.

It is probably worthwhile contacting the firm directly via email or their social media channels to double check though.

Hey everyone,

I need to complete two Watson Glasers (Linklaters & HL), but have never taken a test before (besides some smaller practice ones today).
If anyone could send websites with practice tests or TCLA advice/tips that would be amazing.

[I'm currently going through the TCLA course on WG tests]

Thanks!
