    I think I read somewhere a breakdown of their Vac scheme vacancies.

    Ten minutes later.... found it!:

    http://www.chambersstudent.co.uk/true-picture/380/1

    I'll copy the paragraph here:

    'Placements last for a week and are available in the Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Milton Keynes, Reading, Southampton and Edinburgh offices. Six or seven positions are up for grabs per office, and there are no more than three vac schemers in one location at a given time.'

    Do you study Law at Uni of Southampton? If so, what year?

    Haha thanks for finding that! That's scary though

    No, I'm from Southampton originally but go to uni up in Leeds, yourself?

    It could be but I doubt it

    it says 'online assessment exercises' implying the standard tests
    What are the standard tests? Verbal reasoning & critical thinking?

    As far as I know weightmans offered vac schemes last year based purely on candidates' application forms. I think this is the first time they've used the online assessment and the details have been quite vague so far. Guess we'll just have to wait and see
    Yeah, I heard they changed their application procedure. It's a shame I didn't apply last year

    I don't really understand how it works, two days in your chosen office then the third in Southampton office? I would be applying to the Cardiff Office so Southampton is far to travel to for the third day!!
    I think the third day in Southampton is their assessment day and by the looks of it, they only hold an assessment day in that office? I was a bit confused by it too which is why I decided to just apply for the TC I don't think it is a vac scheme like the others it seems more like a couple of insight days really - good luck though, I hope all goes well with the application!

    What do verbal reasoning tests normally entail?

    I still haven't heard anything. No doubt I can expect a PFO at 5pm today. Not sure why it's taken so long, I really would have thought they'd have made a decision by now.
