    Well I applied for the Apprentice, and I got an interview for the 31st March. I have never had any business experience, except from raising £500 with some two other friends by baking cakes. I'm only doing my GCSE's at the moment and have not taken business studies or economics. Do you think it would be appropriate to go to the interview/audition or not?:confused:

    Haha thanks. I can assure you I won't. Most of my friends think I won't be good for the show cause I'm not big headed whatsoever. Actually quite the opposite :P
    But Thanks.

    They must think you have potential to give you an audition, on the previous show they said like 20 thousand people applied so you must have what it takes. I wish you the best of luck!

    To be honestly I never watch junior apprentice, only the original apprentice sometimes just to see Sir Sugaah tear them apart in the boardroom Only good thing about the whole damn show.

    If I do get through to the actual show, I'd have to give up my summer holidays. And this is the only free holiday I have cause it's a transfer from secondary to 6th form :P

    The trick is to appear as cocky and as inept as possible.

    Talk up cake selling as if you were CEO of a FTSE company and you'll be somewhere in the vicinity of the other candidates. All you'll need after that is a ridiculous catchphrase, something along the lines of "I'm the reflection of perfection".

    One of my friends has applied too and has an interview
    He's a bit nervous too

    I would never apply for his myself. 6 weeks in a mansion seems fun, but I wouldn't fit in with most of the arrogant contestants. There's usually one nice one though...
    Good luck though. ^^

    "I'm like King Midas. Everything I touch turns to sold"

    "My first word as a baby wasn't mummy, it was money"

    I could probably think of more.
