    I got told off the guy today that they're sending out the letters tomorrow (Wednesday) and to give him an email if I receive nothing by Friday. Better at least get progressed on this one.

    Found out today that I got knocked back by Network Rail which IMO is ****ing disgraceful considering the want 4 standard grades at level 3 (GCSE C) and I've got an engineering degree, 2 Advanced Highers and 4 Highers at B or better.

    that's a shame abt network rail bet they said something like over-experienced or something stupid and cliche like that. Let's hope better things come along eh.

    Nope. Template email (spelling mistakes and all!) saying the usual 'level of applicant was extremely high' bull****. As they were taking on 220 people this year I find it extremely hard to believe there were 220 (I'd even guess up to 400 would be progressed) people better than me. You should apply for it Damilola. They're still taking applications.
