    Sorry to hear that! How did you feel you had done? Have you phoned them to see what went wrong? This makes me anxious, I should be hearing this week if not today!

    Whats for you won't go past you!

    I'm actually pretty shocked, I thought you would definitely make it through to the next stage after passing last year. Have you got anything else in the pipeline or was that the last one for this year?

    That's rubbish luck! You would have thought since your other grades were so good it could have pulled up the other one. Did they tell you what the pass percentage for the mechanical was?

    Hi everyone, just read back over the entire thread, there's some very useful information here, thanks.
    I'm still waiting for a date for my aptitude test, I believe they didn't get to my area until around May last year, so I have a while to wait still. Reading that some of the applicants are in their early twenties doesn't give me much hope of getting on the shceme, as I am only 16, but i think the experience will be good and if I don't make it this year I have a place at 6th form college and will try again next year. Good luck to everyone, maybe I will meet some of you one day.

    Thanks for that, is he enjoying it?
    I'm just worrying about the test, as I have never done anything like that before, the maths will be fine but have no idea about the other papers.

    That's beyond gutting. Sorry to hear that. And to the person asking if everyone is in their 20s. From the experience ive had in applying for apprenticeships this year they seem to savour the younger applicants. You can have lightning bolts shooting out your arse and A's all over the place but as long as you have the minimum they require and can convey your enthusuasm then you've got just as much chance as anyone else.
