Some of the questions I was asked were odd. Is this normal? Why was my assessment so long?

    Hi and welcome 

    This is very normal they are just making sure when put under pressure you answer and it matches info on your form 

    The length of call is also dependant on how much info they need to gather or cross check 

    Dont worry you can ask for copy of your report approx 7 days after your assessment.  It isnt final decision but will show recommendations

    @tonyuka11 - I can only judge by my own assessment but this happened to me.

    I can sometimes get confused so I asked if the assessor could ask questions in the order that they were on the initial application as I would find this easier to follow. This did n't happen - possibly as the interviewer seemed to be following prompts on a laptop...
