    I have been advised to apply and have some pretty good ideas of future business prospects, but the experience which I have entails school enterprise schemes and selling things at 6 times the price it took me to make them or whatever, but for Charities only. I haven't had a job except video blogging for TSR and that's hardly a real job, but I'm very academic... Extremely academic, in fact. Positions I've had when it comes to money-making have always been MD (Managing Director) so should I bother applying? Or is it not worth the possible humiliation that you could face if you did get through?

    Advice would be appreciated. 3 people I know in my year have already got to the audition stages and they are of mixed abilities; one of them was in my own enterprise team too! XD

    I have applied for the junior apprentice before Christmas, the only thing I left out was the picture, it was not compulsory. Will this affect my chances, and when is the auditions/ interviews for birmingham. Thanks.
    I didn't put a picture in and iv been called for an audition...

    Hi everyone, the deadline for apps is tomorrow night, so will I still get an audition if I apply today, considering my app is good?

    Well I got my email today telling me I got an interview so i should think you would still be able to get an audition. After all it would be unfair if it was 'first come first serve', you should definitely apply!!

    Those who have got an interview what are you wearing?
    I was going to wear a simple suit

    I really wasn't going to go until i heard it could support my medicine application for next year. i don't own a business but do really well academically, and was wondering what level of experience everyone has? i busked and raised money through that, was involved in a young enterprise scheme at school and have been involved in fundraising for charity, but apart from that i only have a part time job at mcdonald's for experience. is it even worth the train fare?

    and in answer to clothing questions, probably just black pants and a blouse?

    I have my interview on Wednesday!! And I am just going to wear a smart top, trousers and a nice jacket. I am not going in a suit at this stage, and I'd wear soemthing comfortable, because reading other threads has made me re-realise the obvious; it's important to remain calm throughout!

    I've got my interview on Sunday, should be good, not wearing a suit as my clothes are smart casual enough. I've never even watched one episode though!

    i applied last year, got 2nd round but its seriously awful.
    for those that apply next year some advice: 1st round is incredibly hard- you are in a line full of a people and you get 30 seconds each to speak! i crapped my pants and lied as the guy next to me said he had bought and sold a rainforest... at 16! LIKE WTF!
    2nd rounds fine, but you need some good business experience compete!
    Good luck all
