I took the Situational Judgement test last week and met the benchmark so sat the Verbal Reasoning one on Thursday, fingers crossed I hear back soon! Have you heard back yet? (in reply to Baker & McKenzie question)

My results were very bad, scored a 2.2. I have EXTENSIVE legal experience but honestly I know the top firms won't take me serious no matter what my experience with those grades. So I will begin applying for vac schemes in third year I reckon?

What do you guys think I should do??

Thanks

Sounds a realistic approach. Maybe supplement it with informal work experience this year or look for in-house opportunities as they tend to be more open minded, and are a great way to build your CV even further.

Yeah that's the same as me, haven't heard back since the Verbal Reasoning

Although, I just checked and my Verbal Reasoning hasn't changed to completed, even though I did it and the link to complete it doesn't work anymore. (slightly worrying)

Don't worry - I had the exact same issue with both the SJ and VR!! I emailed the firm both times (probably look super keen...) to check there hadn't been an issue but never got a response, but both changed to 'completed' a few days after - I guess it just takes a little time.

Good luck let me know if you hear!

To whom is this question directed?

This thread is over a year old now, so those who participated will no longer be first years.

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering how you would go about asking a question like:


"How is (Name of Firm) different to the other firms you have applied to?"


Also I have a limited amount of work experience and these vacation schemes/insight day applications tend to ask a lot of questions (which is to be expected).

Your help will be most welcomed.
