Yes exact same thing for me too!

Just completed Part 1 of the exam and passed so waiting for Part 2 now. It says it can take up to 4 hours.

It seems there's not much work though for people who have recently started? I know LB often had phases of no work, so hopefully this won't be for too long!

A-ha!, got to the end of it now, think there were either 27 or 32 questions in all (lost count!) requiring 108/128 separate answers.

Now the 4-hour wait for the next bit

They didn't like it that I had altered my name to Mrs P instead of Pippi. I just entered it how it is on my chequebook but it has to be exactly the same as on your contract apparently.

It's worth noting that banks (in the UK at least) pay no attention to the Payee details. You could be called A Brown but have a payment to S Smith, it will be accepted anyway.

All that matters is that the Sort Code/Account number match, or in the case of Leapforce, the IBAN.

Oh dear, got an automated email saying I failed 2nd part of test "either because you did not receive a passing score or did not attempt to complete the exam"

Bit annoyed, because I only had 7 pages to rate before the Task Queue was empty so I logged out. Given that part 1 of the test required over 100 separate answers I'm surprised Part 2 would be so short, it doesn't seem right to me.

Did I trigger an automatic "Thank You and Goodbye" email because I logged out of the rater hub due to there being nothing for me to rate at this time?

I'm doing Part 2 right now so I'll let you know when I'm done.

Yes I just finished part 2 and there wasn't many questions really. Probably about 7. How long did it take to hear about part 2?

Should I send one more on Monday? Maybe send it 50 times so it can't be missed?! Suppose that may just make them angry though . Plus, on the small chance that they actually bothered to reply and sort out my account, I'd only have one day remaining to take all three parts of the exam, which I'm not sure would even be possible. Think someone mentioned having to wait 4 hours for the last part to come through?!

And, surprise surprise, they're not active on Facebook either...
Hi, hope you have heard something by now?

Unfortunately not miamoo - although wasn't really expecting to hear anything over the weekend after what you said! Since receiving the exam email on Wednesday, I've written to them three separate times. Last one would've arrived at about 2pm their time on Friday and was sent to two different addresses. Really unsure about whether to message them again tomorrow, or just leave it now...

How are you getting on with them? Is there much work available?

http://lftaskmaster.com/rateraide

I've been meaning to post this link since I saw it on chat last week. It's an add on to firefox that some raters use to help with timekeeping.

I've downloaded it but I haven't actually used it yet as I haven't started working - I've been trying to get to grips with the new guidelines so I'm hoping to start tomorrow.

How is everyone getting on at the moment? I hope it is going well for you all.

Good luck to everyone currently going through the qualification process too.

I think it may be possible that new workers are restricted to the amount of hours they can work. I hardly got any work at first, I was lucky to get an hour in one go, but it has picked up since.
