I got an invite, and I am from South America.

Has anyone done the interview already? Do you know or think is it the same as the previous year? Is it possible to re-record?

Is it technical? Do we need paper and pen to calculate?

Also, how long is it? I plan to do it tomorrow but won't postpone if it's too long.

It's not technical at all. I found it more like behavioral in nature. Each question has a 2 minute response time limit (you can re-record the response several time and prior responses will be discarded), with a total of 5 questions.

It's possible to re-record as many times as you want before submitting the final version.
Are you sure we could re-record as many times as we want? I heard that the question does change when one tries to re-record and we could re-record just once (not sure of the last part)

PS: Received an invite. From India.

Thanks a lot for your response! And good luck everyone with your interviews!

I re-recorded several times before allowing the system to upload my latest response.
Also, you can't move to next question before uploading response to current question.

Mate, I am just kidding about India, ethnicity etc. Nothing better to write lol. I am sure everyone deserving has/will receive an invite. It was just light banter from me.

It is all good! I am sorry if my response looked a little bit defensive. I just did it for the sake of informing other people in this forum about the status of our applications. It has been very helpful for me when I read comments or posts from other applicants, so just wanted to do the same.:)

I may be jumping the gun here, but does anyone know how many interview invites were sent out last year and what's the acceptance rate?
