    eurghhh I had my assessment day yesterday and I think I did really bad I'm disappointed because I feel like I didn't tell them enough about myself. I hope they do another cohort so I can apply again next year.
    Honestly try not to be so hard on yourself. I bet you did better than you thnk. Interviews are stressful and I'm sure the assesses can see through the fluster to the potential underneath. Stay positive...fingers crossed for you Hun...it's not over till you've received that email! Xxxx

    That's the thing, I received an email saying congrats and it had the criminal dec form and references form as the original email they sent didn't have the attachments so they said we will email you then if your successful so I was like yay. Then once I responded I got a phone call from like the head office saying congratulations your through to the next stage, but oh by the way the location has changed ill email you the details through later today, so I was like oh ok. Then the next thing the email came through but with Halton still on it so I emailed the normal email address as this one came from a no reply one and asked if the location had changed and they were like nope still the same. So now I'm like ok it must be Halton stadium but there still a niggling doubt because I'm like why would te woman on the phone lie lol x

    Oh what a stress. I got a telephone call on the 18th saying I'd been successful, they left a message asking me to call to confirm...I called to confirm my attendance and asked if it would be in the same location...the woman said 'as far as i know'. Then later that evening I got an email from [email protected] confirming thati had been invited to the assessment centre on the 26th at Halton stadium. It said to reply to this email (even though its a noreply address?) to confirm attendance. I replied even though I'd already confirmed over the phone. Maybe the lady thought you were attending a different day perhaps? Some of them are at alternative locations I think. I hope we end up at the right place! X

    I was with you today, I'm really nervous too, just trying to put it to the back of my mind and stop going over what I should have done differently as it's too late to change anything now. Good luck and maybe I'll see you in January

    Hi Winstonsone, thanks for your concern. Yes I am happy to say that they have been in touch and apologised.
    They have arranged another day for me next week.
    It has indeed been a stressful day.

    Good luck with your application x

    Well done to everyone who has had their assessments so far! I'm so nervous for tomorrow. My parents had my GCSE certificates (thank god), I'm just trying to get their scanner to work to get copies.

    Did anyone attend the Greater Manchester assessment on Thursday?

    I'm so nervous I can't even be decisive about whether to get the train or drive! I've no idea how to prepare either :confused:

    I am at the Birmingham one tomorrow, spent most of the morning getting the documents ready and shooting out to get a photo done last minute. I am also going between extreme nerves and then oddly also feeling a bit relaxed, in a what will be will be kind of way.

    I have applied to Staffordshire but I have said I will go to another one if I am offered. I didn't get an email, I got two phone calls to go through all the requirements for the day. What area have you applied for?
