Alright thanks! Is it common for ministries or stat boards to ask for supporting documents for the tea session even though you might not be hired? Btw, what role did you apply that entails a walk through on DCF if you don't mind sharing?

I got an email confirmation and they said it will take about 2 weeks to give an offer, but it has been 1.5 weeks and still no sound.

if they asked for these after 2nd round of interview, then it definitely means you have at least a DECENT chance of getting offered; i.e. you cleared the 2nd interview. but take note that they might ask a few shortlisted candidate for all these information too.

while this doesnt mean you have secured the job, it definitely means you are being seriously considered. all the best!
Ahh I got the role in the end thank you for your encouragement
