    What if everyone in the amber band for CD right now got exactly the same score and they invite us to an ad-hoc FSB right in the middle of exams

    What if the ad-hoc FSB was some sort of hunger games style event

    I've been following this thread for a while but have never posted before - I had FSAC on 13/01 and eventually got rejected from DS but I am still waiting on CD. I was just wondering, has anyone actually been rejected for CD yet?

    Yes, not sure about stats but people have been getting rejected both immediately and at each sift. I have no idea about how many people are left in the amber band compared to how many spaces are left :/

    I have also had the sneaking suspicion that the floor hasn't been rising with each time

    Oh God don't say that :/! I have a contact in Fast Stream recruitment from my internship, just emailing with him now to confirm whether that's the case. He's replying instantly (and is always very helpful) so will post his answer.

    I take back that comment, he wasn't overly helpful and avoided the question! Perhaps I didn't word it clearly enough. Either way, he said we would definitely get the final decision this week so I guess that's something...

    Just had a confirmation from a guy high up in the Fast Stream recruitment/assessment team that the band is narrowed, and people are rejected as well as accepted at every sift. Phew!

    I would work nightshift for them if it meant getting my result quicker!

    Good to have confirmation that people have also been getting rejected, I was also having that worry! Fingers crossed today is that day!

    Found out I had passed the FSAC for GCS a few days after the event and have a FSB on the 28th of April was looking through my report today and the comments are very critical! looking at the way the marks are decided does this mean if you are scoring 2's/3's you won't get through the FSB?

    No. Everyone's report has plenty of criticism. If you weren't potentially good enough to pass the FSB they wouldn't have invited you (is my opinion). Just take the criticism on board to perform even better!

    Anybody up for a Jarrow Crusade esque march to Parity's offices? I mean I don't mean to cheapen the achievements and struggles of those men, but surely this represents similar if not worse adversity for those of us still waiting?
