Any idea what is the time given to do the PT?

In collective sense, 3 hours for all 3 parts.

Breaking it down, 40 mins, 30 mins and the last part is not timed. 5 minutes break between parts, the room can choose to forgo the break.

so i email them and receive a reply in less than an hour, saying if more than 2 weeks no mail after application means unsuccessful 0.0

conclusion: i failed to even enter for the PT

should i try again? maybe i should choose a wider scope of positions?

try your best.. nobody knows how.. even if ans all might not make it either.. and most likely looking for different criteria for different types of jobs..

like u do the short "quiz" on the dxo website, choosing different options would result in different jobs recommendation.. maybe going by such logic to sieve out the traits or type of person they deem as suitable

I have read that people who did not finish the PT gets shortlisted for interviews anyway.

However, i've also read that if too many blanks are present, the person gets rejected promptly. The post seemed to imply that the person was rejected on the spot.

In another words, try to finish as much as you can. 2 or 3 blanks should be fine.

Depends on what your qualifications are. If they are not good enough, then repeated applications would be a waste of time. It's unfortunate that they are that stringent on your educational requirements.

Wait or email them.. Sometimes it does take that Long before they get back to u.. or u could drop them an email to ask on the status, they are pretty nice and no harm anyway..

If u fail the pt or being notified as rejected, then don't bother applying anymore (that pt result is going stay with you for a year..)
