The JAC provides feedback to help candidates understand why their application was unsuccessful and to consider this for future applications. Candidates unsuccessful at selection day and who would like feedback will receive details of how and when to request it.
Paper sift feedback
We may sometimes publish generic sift feedback reports. This gives candidates guidance on what characterised stronger applications in comparison to weaker applications in that exercise.

Qualifying tests feedback
The JAC does not publish qualifying test past papers. However, general feedback reports are published to help candidates understand what characterises a successful test, and to consider this in the light of their experience.
The reports give a broad indication of:
- the general standard of tests
- the range of marks awarded
- the distribution of marks within this range
- where candidates performed poorly, and the identification and analysis of common problems
