It's ok but 9 times out of 10 the job nearly always goto someone working in the office already who are temporary. I had 20 interviews once one after the other to be told someone slid into the post. You have to carry on though as you will get the job you want eventually. I did. At least you get practice to score high and they look out for key words and you will see them write it down. Confidentiality for example or safeguarding.
I found it very fair and aimed at getting the best people through the door.
