Perotti:
@Collineno, I also got the mail 2day. I think the test could be structured like the SHL's own. Took a similar test with WorldBank.
Let's chat

You guys are not alone here. I also got the mail about the online test. Please let see help each other out. Anyone with a useful information about the test should please share with us here.

@Perotti, what does the one of SHL look like.

Wishing all of us success.

How does GCATA and Perspectives relates with the online test
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by Perotti: 10:23pm On Jul 07, 2016
You guys should look up on Google 'SHL abstract reasoning test and personality test'. You should be able to take some practice test with em.
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by Collineno: 10:59am On Jul 08, 2016
the SHL I know of is strictly graphs and charts while abstract is using diagram to arrange shapes and the likes... well its see how it goes and prepare for anything

Hello Dinlin, solomon carter and whoever knows about PhD in Newzealand, My name is samuel and i need you to advise me on what to do regarding what i will be posting below.

I have a master's degree in mech. eng. from UI and with a CGPA of 5.61 of 7 (PhD grade). I got an offer of place at UoA in januray this year but there was no fund since i was not given a scholarship. I planned to get a job, save and reapply. I got a job and i got another offer few days ago but without scholarship again. See mail below.

Dear Samuel Okeleye,



Offer of Place: Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering



Your application for registration as a doctoral candidate at the University of Auckland has been reviewed by the Dean of Graduate Studies on behalf of the Board of Graduate Studies, and we are happy to inform you that your registration has been approved.



Your proposed thesis title is "Micro-compressor for an Ultra Micro Gas Turbine.".



You were considered for a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship. However, as a result of a high number of exceptional candidates, we cannot offer you this particular scholarship.



We realise this is disappointing, and although we are unable to offer you this award, we very much encourage you to investigate the wide range of other scholarships available at the University of Auckland. For further information on scholarships, visit www.auckland.ac.nz\scholarships.

Having worked for couple of months, i lost my job but i have only been able to save 400k. I am married and my wife works with an IT firm.

My questions are, is there a way i can get a scholarship elsewhere? If not, Is it worth risking if i decide to get money for tuition and living within the first one month and believe that i would get a job to take care of subsequent expenses? How much is sufficient to take care of all expenses if i am thinking of entering with my wife considering the fall in naira value?

In addition, OPRA consulting is the administrator of the test, it may be useful to practice with their materials before taking the test. The personality test is looking out for the big Five Personalities (Opennness,conscientiousness,extraversion/extroversion,agreeableness and neurotism). Please remember New Zealand's time zone is about 11 hours ahead of the time in Nigeria.
All the best

Hallo guys. Has any one received any information from NZDS after completing the GCATA test. I completed the test same day they send it. The following day they replied saying shortly they will send an email with a link to a 40 minute test which will take two weeks to complete.

I received my Assessment (GCATA n Personality test) mail a day before they sent the Shortlist outcome mail. It was later I realized the Assessment mail was in my Spam. After the deadline the only mail I received was to inform of ' deadline of test submission'. And your application being declined if you didn't take the test. Hope they don't keep us waiting that long tho.
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by shapirorue: 7:13am On Jul 28, 2016
I also received the same email notifying me of the deadline of test submission. I hope so too that they dont make us wait long.

please, did you only upload your transcript or asked the school to send it.? was it both, Bsc n Msc, transcripts you submitted. I wrote to one lecturer for supervision, and he asked for both my bsc n msc, including my msc topic to post graduate school.

If you can Google New Zealand gov scholarship, you can get available scholarship, though, I have no idea about it

I dont want to discourage you but will tell you the bitter truth. With the fall of Naira, 400k would be about 1500nzd or thereabout and I doubt if its enough to show as evidence of financial support. The combined flight ticket for you and your wife is more than 3k dollars. Your wife may be able to get a work visa under your visa but it's hard getting anything as most employers will ask for local experience...she may find work but will take time I believe. Auckland is very expensive. You may need to use google to search for scholarships or unis that offer one in your field. A budget of 10k dollars after ticket fare should do and be aware with the current Nigerian government restrictions on overseas transactions. All the best.
