Thank you! It's such a different application process to usual, I had to do lots of practice tests as it just wasn't something I am used to. Good luck for your future/current applications!
Did you find doing practice tests helped? Where did you find those?

I'm stunned at how many of us candidates have been left in mid air. I'm sure there was more certainty last year.

I know, it's awful. Just put us out of our misery!

I'm waiting on 15NBS to reject me on the basis that two people have commented on this thread about accepting offers from them.

Yeah I think they helped to a certain extent as they showed me what sort of answers people were looking for rather than what you might actually do. Given that some pretty likely answers seem to only get partial marks because there seems to be a set way of dealing with things, I think that maximised my marks but there is still an element of luck in my opinion. I just googled situational judgement practice tests and did a couple and read the guidance.

Hope that helps!

GLS tests are so random. One year I made it to the Critical Reasoning stage, the following year I failed at the Situational Judgment stage. Through to the Verbal Reasoning stage this year. Fingers crossed everyone!

I think the pass threshold changes by reference to scores of your year. They'll take through the right number at each stage to ensure they have the right number at assessment centre. At assessment centre you're ranked and they offer from top down. If not enough people met the standard they just take less trainees.

4BB anyone?
I've accepted and I know of at least one other acceptance... I have a feeling I was the last one to confirm today, but not 100% on that. Sorry for the bad news!

Nexus interviews are out too. Anyone with Nexus experience willing to give tips either on here or DM would be very much appreciated.... eg. may name first child after you, etc.
We had 25 mins to prep a bail app last year, before then doing it, and then answering some general questions on your CV etc.

Can anyone at all confirm if they know if anyone either got an offer from 4 Brick Court or was invited for second round interview? Haven't seen on the thread any news about them at all offering to anyone?

I have received my scoring for gls. I scored 50% and the required threshold was 63%.
