    Sa mga nagtake ng interview and test. How was the interview? Ano ba tinatanong sa interview?
  • dee0829dee0829 MelbyPosts: 278Member
    @LakiMasel interview is basically checking your all required documents and informing you where your pledge will be etc.. just a chitchat I would say. but that was from my experience.. maybe it depends on the interviewer? I have an indo friend, he didnt pass the interview? he thinks it was because he couldnt communicate the effectively in English..

    Hi po, sa mga ininterview recently ano po mga tinanong? tska po same day din po ba yun ng exam?

    Its a casual conversation. They are just trying to sense whether you can speak and understand english while reviewing your documents. If satisfied, they will let you take the test and once done, you can leave the test centre. You can just read the "Our Common Bond" citizenship test material even a night before going for the interview. Memorize the dates, flags, responsibilities of local, state, federal govt. the reat can be answered using your common sense.

    @RPhwithOZdream

    Gaano po kayo katagal nagaral for citizenship? di na ko nakapagbasa for citizenship dahil na open heart surgery yung nanay ko, nakakastress.

    Nung Monday lang ako na interview and took the exam. I studied for the exam around 10 days prior. Took around 60 practice tests and binasa tlga yung booklet cover to cover. Kinabahan ako kasi 75% ang passing. 20 questions. So 5 questions lang pwedeng mali.

    Sa kabutihang palad, nakakuha naman ako ng 100% at natapos yung exam in under 3 minutes. 45 mins kasi yung allowed. So akala ko mahirap if that much time was needed initially.

    Recommendation ko is to take the practice exams first. As much as you can. Kasi natututo ka rin doon sa mga type of questions na lalabas. Then afterwards, read the booklet and familiarise further.

    Good luck!

    We dont really know kung ano pang mga checks ginagawa after sa exam. Depende kasi sa individual pero mahirap din magconclude. After my test sinabihan ko na lalabas ako ng australia the following day, inapproved naman kaagad oag alis ko ng test centre.

    Check your immi account if already approved. The letter will be received within 2 weeks after approval. There is no notification from your immi account if already approved thats why you have to check it. Some were approved on the day while some waited for months.

    @gerlazh saan ka nag interview and test? Sa Perth Wellington ba?

    Sabi sa amin ay 2 weeks to 2 months daw malalaman ang result. Nakaka pa anxious din sobra.

    @LakiMasel opo sa wellington din po. Wala naman sila na hiningi na documents before or during the interview so ewan kung anu na ang progress ng app namin.

    @gerlazh sa amin din ay wala na eh. Ano sabi sa immi account mo? Received pa din ba?

    Yung ibang taga Perth ay 1 week lang meron na, may nabasa naman ako June 2018 pa sya nag test ay wala pa daw feedback. Random na random yata ang cases talaga. Sobrang nakakainip.

    @LakiMasel received pa din sa immi nakaka-stress. On hold talaga ang buhay di makaplano ng mag travel overseas kay di daw maapprove ang app kung offshore. How many months na po app nyo since lodgment?
