    How confusing. richaj hears (bad lack on the result, but keep at it!) but when I mail the fast stream team this morning to find out if the results are now being released, they say "The FSAC results should be available by the end of next week". Not conflicting statements, but if they're currently releasing results you think they'd have mentioned that...

    They said I'd have an 'appointment' soonish. Not sure what I like the sound of more? 'Suitability interview' sounds like something you can fail!!
    I know - apparently it's 'an opportunity for the department to meet you before offering you employment'! Best of luck with the appointment. Have the department written to you yet, or is it just via the GES that you've found out?

    Thanks man. Just the GES so far. Apparently someone from DEFRA should contact me soon. If I don't hear from them with 4 WEEKS (!) then I'm meant to email someone. I'm waiting with bated breath.

    I have some good news for you cake! They have had a re-think during the day!

    The people there from DWP who run the HR FS said this afternoon they had asked the FS team to bring forward notifying people who are "clear passes" as they dont want to "loose them to the GFS when results are released next week". So told us it could be as early as tomorrow, but we may not find out until May if they decide not to go ahead with this idea.

    So who knows???

    Hehe - it's week number 3 for me already (I only heard from the GSS). I think I'll email next week if I still haven't heard...

    Commiserations to Richaj and everyone else who didn't get what they want.

    On a totally different note, I'm just about to drive to Germany. Insane.

    did anyone who has attended the HRFSB get any indication on the number of people through to this round compared to the number of places.

    The graduate from last year said that 50 were taken last year so i hope that this is about the same becasue there were 24 people who attended yesterday so if you take that to be the same for all 4 FSB's then that would mean about 100 left for 50 places??

    NNNNNNOOOOOOOOO that's terrible news!! Now I'm going to be checking it every day again! Hah, thanks though. I doubt it'll be today but they'll probably start next week.

    i know i think i've checked it about 5 times today already even though i know full well that even if they did release the top scoring people early that probably wouldn't be me!

    I really can't face the idea of not finding out for another 6-7 weeks though!

    Yeah I asked there are 50 places this year and 100 people are invited to FSB! Not bad odds really!

    i suppose even better than 1 in 2 because some people will choose the GFS if accepted and some people won't turn up to the FSB i guess.

    Just got my FSAC report. 17.63 overall which seems fine. But I'm rubbish at making decisions (only scored 2.32 for that) dangerously close to the edge.

    well done huxley, thats a really good score, that one might be low but you must have got some high scores in other areas to make it up to mid 17's.

    My application has been updated!!!!!!

    Oh…It’s now ‘awaiting results’ as opposed to ‘awaiting event’. They would have updated it if I was immediately successful, I assume, so I expect I haven’t got through. I’m going to withdraw as I’m so certain I haven’t got a placement now.
