    That's such a relief! Did you attend the morning or evening one? You'll have to let me know as soon as you hear back.

    I took my driving licence, passport, p60 and bank statement but they asked me to email them a copy of my birth certificate and a signed passport photo! Anybody else been asked for this amount of ID? My assessment was 28th April and I've not sent it yet as I've struggled to find someone that can sign my photo. Do you think this will affect my chances of getting a place?

    I think it won't, if They want you I doubt they would let something like that get in the way

    Urgh, disaster.

    I've been dutifully checking my email, my phone, and the I-grasp Accounts page for any updates to my application. Hadn't been contacted about anything since submitted..

    I've only just now noticed the "Your emails" button next to "sign out".

    It's full of emails from Capita, inviting me to do tests and such. I never saw them, there was never an alert to tell me I had messages waiting, and nothing is in my Inbox or on my phone. But copies of these really important messages are on that Your emails page. So I've missed the deadline to do the tests by a month. :/

    I've tried phoning up Capita, but no one has answered. Shot off an email now but.. gah. Feel so stupid for not noticing that button before.

    Always next year I guess.

    Sorry to hear that. what email do you use? sounds like an odd system.

    In case anyone was wondering I still haven't heard anything back, wish they'd just say I've not been invited to the assessment centre at this stage. As you say, there's always next year!

    Gmail. There is nowt in the spam box; and even if I had somehow deleted it, I was checking my email every few hours in the few days after I sent through my application: and according to the page the email Capita sent me was sent only a day after I sent it through. I would have seen it if it had appeared in my inbox!

    Did you put your email address in correctly? Maybe you missed a letter or something! Either way it's such bad luck, good luck for next year though??!

    That's the bizarre thing; I had all the other emails and text messages from Capita about my application form (initial registration confirmation, reminder, etc etc). Just not the.. most important one of all, so it seems.

    Just wondering, went for assessment centre on 14th April. I hear that people have now received texts stating if they were successful, has anyone not received a text? As I have kind of given up with Capita.

    Thanks

    I haven't received a text either and my assessment day was 17th April. I emailed Capita today and they said they are 'giving out results sporadically due to the large volume of candidates to be contacted.' Good luck!

    My invitation for the online tests had "Be careful! This sender has failed our fraud detection checks" on my hotmail at account at the top of the email. Maybe gmail has filtered it out?

    I was sent a text saying I'd passed the assessment centre stage before I'd even went to my interview so I reckon they had a fault there, they said I wouldn't find out until June.

    I think it's fair to say the recruitment process is slightly flawed lol
