    Hi,

    For anybody who has had previous experience completing the Watson Glazer test. Do you have any tips and/or suggestions on how to prepare effectively for it? Feel free to PM me or to reply directly on this thread

    Thanks

    I have done the Watson Glazer a couple of times. Practice is really important! There are some free tests (short versions) on the Linklaters and Hogan Lovells websites. It is good to know what each section of the Watson Glazer involves - and there is an explanation on this site: https://www.wikijob.co.uk/wiki/watson-glaser
    Good luck!

    Does anyone know how long law firms normally take to get back to you after a summer vacation scheme as to whether you have been successful with a training contract? someone said to me they wait until the end of summer incase you have multiple placements and then inform you in september and you make a decision? but this seems like a long wait!

    From my understanding, law firms aren't able to offer training contracts to people until they have started their third year in university. So you normally hear in September. Not sure if this is still the case but that's what I've been told!

    Pretty sure that rule has now been got rid of (it was a voluntary code in the first place anyway). Wonder if many firms will still stick to the 1st September thing anyway :erm:

    No I haven't, didn't they say if we were successful we would hear by 1st may, so we have a bit of time!! Fingers crossed!!!
    From their email, I got the impression that they will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis. I applied a week ago fingers crossed for us.

    I haven't. But I'm starting to assume its a PFO. I emailed Grad Rec this morning to ask when to hear back. (hopefully to end the painful wait!)
