    Hello! No,mine was the written assessment, I was number 2! I applied to Bromley, but would like to be considered for other boroughs (anything to help my chances).

    It has been a drawn out process - we found out about the assessment day a week late too! I was gutted when they said 2-3 weeks, as I noticed on here people had been hearing back withing days, but I suppose the London boroughs have a huge amount of applicants.

    I was exhausted by the end of it!
    i was exhausted too! I applied to greenwich but also said I'd consider other boroughs. Do you think we might hear by the end of this week or is it too soon?! X

    Unfortunately it doesn't work like that. They either have to decline their place now or have problems with their references. I think if people drop out closer to January the places just won't be filled. It's a shame because I think people will definitely drop out before January but not now, which means us poor reserves will miss out

    Congratulations on getting a place and good luck!

    Out of curiosity has anyone seen a template of the forms sent out to referees? I wonder what questions they ask?

    It will be two week tomorrow, so we could hear back this week, but I reckon it will be next week. I am trying not to get my hopes up, but would just be so pleased if I got a place!

    Hi, I called Penna and they advised me I have a place, but that I would recieve a telephone call too to confirm this. I haven't had my call yet... I know that they only made their decisions last Tuesday so there may be a backlog in making the calls to successful and reserve list applicants so I'm not worrying too much, but if it gets to the end of next week with no news then I think another call to Penna may be in order. Good luck!!

    The lady I spoke to didn't seem to sure and said that I would receive a call, but still nothing so far. I don't want to get my hopes up and then be disappointed!! Please keep me updated....if you receive a call etc thanks!!!!

    I think probably next week too, or longer if the wait for the assessment is anything to go by!
    i just really can't judge how it went on the day as I thought that most people there seemed really good! I don't think the group session I was in went too well though as halfway through we had to be told to remember the brief and stop asking questions to the young people! Xxx

    Hi Julier

    congratulations you must be very pleased a great achievement especially with all the competition.
    I attended Tooley street on the 9.7.13 for the London south East regional partnership, I phoned Penna today and they said that the results hadn't been issued, can anybody put me out of my misery? I was told that I would receive an email if it was a negative and a phone call if I was to be offered a place. Has anybody received a phone call who went to this assessment day?:o:o

    I was at Tooley St the day after you and have yet to receive anything. They said 2-3 weeks so any day between now and Wednesday I suppose! Will post when I hear good or bad.

    Hi everyone. I went to an assessment centre on 11th July for Surrey. I just called penna and they said that there was a problem with the scoring so we would hopefully find out next week!

    The assessment day was well organised but every other part of our assessment has been a bit of a mess. Hope the course is better organised if I get through!
