    That's so annoying! Are people even still doing FSACs?

    Has anybody who was amber banded for HR heard anything yet?
    I'm still amber banded for HR. It seems to be only immediate yes and no's that have heard.

    Sounds as if people have heard, so I guess I'm still Amber banded. Is anyone waiting for European and generalist?

    Also - for anyone that applied to the diplomatic scheme - Did you actually get an email saying 'you've not been selected for this scheme'? All that happened to me was that the generalist scheme page in my candidate site had the header banner change from 'diplomatic scheme progress' to 'central department scheme progress' and the FSB stage got taken out.

    Ah. Yep, nothing like that. Last email was a reminder for the FSAC at the start of March. Out of interest, does your generalist scheme have a 'posting form' option greyed out?

    Are you checking your email inbox or the inbox on the fast stream site itself? Because I didn't get an email about it but I did get the DS rejection message on the website inbox.

    Both. The header change from Diplomatic to Central Departments changed on the Tuesday after my FSAC the previous Thursday, which is consistent with how long it took people to find out, but no message to candidate inbox. Might be worth asking Parity about

    Hello,

    I've found out today that I've been successful at the FSAC. I've applied for the DaT stream and I'm curious what will happen if I'm now unsuccessful at the FSB? I've heard conflicting messages and some have said that a place on the generalist scheme is guaranteed for anyone who passes the FSAC. Can anyone shed any light?

    Thanks

    It is if you apply for Generalist and pass FSAC. Not sure for DaT, the pass marks will almost certainly differ between the two schemes so its definitely *not* like for like.

    Just found out I have a place on the HR fast stream having attended FSAC on Thursday, a little overwhelmed!
    Also was at FSAC on Thursday, and also found out I was successful today! For Central Departments though - not HR.

    I've no idea whether I got in on the sift or not. My status changed to awaiting results about two hours before it changed to successful - I'm wondering if I was amber-banded for those two hours. Last time I applied I was amber-banded from January to May (ultimately unsuccessful) so that is something of a turn-up for the books.

    Does anybody know how/when we are likely to find out our scores?

    Thanks for your reply, I'm an internal candidate and have been told by a current FSer that this is the case... but I really want some confirmation. It would be frustrating to have passed the FSAC and potentially leave with nothing at the end of it all!

    I'm in the same situation. I have a feeling you only get offered a central departments/generalist placement if you had it as a second choice and passed.

    You will have been. I'd be interested to know your score when you get it.

    Just got a pass for CD after being immediately rejected for DS in mid-Jan. Think I must've been pretty borderline!
    Have you got your score yet? If so, would you share it please? It will give us on A/B still a gague.

    Congrats, I must have met you on Thursday so it's nice to find others who were sucessful from then! I don't think it means you were amber-banded from then, so it's great news.

    I am quite sure we wont find out our scores until our report comes through in April, I could be wrong though! Really didn't think I'd passed FSAC though so a brilliant surprise.
