Subbing to follow thread. I'll ideally be applying for Diplomatic in autumn 2012 but need my undivided attention on my degree at the moment.
I've also joined the mailing list and plan to attend events of three think tanks I have found extremely helpful in giving a background to foreign policy: the UCL European Institute and the Centre for European Reform for EU-related affairs, and the UK Foreign Policy Centre for general UK foreign relations and analysis on policy. I'd say my particular area of interest is UK-UN P5 relations and UK policy affecting relations with the rest of the P5.
I can highly recommend all three of these to other users, especially the FPC for its excellent new report on the relationship between the Coalition and the EU.

Pretty much because of the numbers more than anything else. I'm fairly confident I could do well on the e-tray (I think very analytically, two years of history has made me even better at this) if I get past the initial psychometric tests but I'm pragmatic about just how hard it's going to be to get to the assessment stage let alone a job offer.

How come you think this?
Yeah I was thinking that we should list good sites for practice tests..apart from the one you can find on the site!

I don't suppose anyone has found anything specific on what the EFS Diplomatic Service is? I can't find anything if I search on google and there's nothing on the website - I take it would be a job in the new EU Diplomatic Service with Ashton but I could be wrong...
Also I applied for the EFS and GFS together, I went for the EFS first as that's my preference but the GFS is now on top of it on the 'my applications' but - does this matter?
