    how do i contact them? my fare will cost around £8 each day...

    edit
    ive just read the email 'You must book your travel within 48 hours / two working days of having your place at an assessment event confirmed by the RBS Early Career Team. ' i guess its too late! however it doesnt say anything about being in london and not allowed to book through them
    they also say they'll reimburse london underground tickets on the day, why not train tickets then?

    Seriously? I've been holding off booking the travel thing till finding out about accommodation. No point booking train tickets for the first evening if I'm staying in London. Not sure what to do now.

    I had visions of Numerical and Verbal Psychometrics but I guess they could do an AC type activity?

    what is ac? so theres no way we can actually prepare?
    on the timetable, what is the 'bank you build' challenge, i hope its a group activity rather than us having to do it individually, im quite nervous about these two days, when i applied i just thought we could network and work shadow!

    AC = Assessment Centre.

    Don't worry, you'll be fine. Just relax, no one expects you to be amazing or anything. I don't know what that challenge is but I imagine it to be a group activity. As far as the interview goes, just prepare some answers and you can practice psychometrics online through SHL, Kenexa or Assessment Day.

    I'm basically bringing myself obviously and a bag with some snacks in with the briefing sheet, pen, paper, CV and that's about it. They'll probably give us all that but just in case.

    It's like a kind of traingle shaped building, haha. It has a little thing outside it that has the temperature on it and says RBS. Google Image 'RBS London Bishopsgate', you can't miss it. Google Map 'RBS, Bishopsgate, London' and not the postcode.

    Not really, just think of good examples for questions, practice tests online and look at their website to find out some information.
