    Same. A thesis and exams all in the next few weeks so waiting to see what they say about dates.
    They've not really thought this application process through, very well, have they? Seems quite poorly organised. Hope they don't read this haha

    What is the TI like?

    It is really bad timing, my exams start next week.
    I shalln't second guess myself until I hear the result!

    Could anyone inform me how an application for the Government Legal Service VS is made?
    All I can find on the website is details of how to apply for a TC, but no links for a direct VS application.
    They're weird. They open in June I think - you'll just have to keep your eyes open!

    Their website says applications open the week of the 27th April so this week, although I can't actually find the application form!!

    It's your standard telephone interview structure really, why them, why law and a few competency based questions. Good Luck!

    I can't even remember there being an option for an Easter vac scheme. Do you reckon they invite the best summer scheme applicants onto the Easter scheme to snap up the good candidates before the summer vac schemes kick in?

    Which location did you apply for? The Easter scheme was only in London so maybe you only got the option if you applied there? I can't remember either but I applied to their northern scheme!

    Perhaps. I just looked on their Apply4Law site and there's no option for an Easter scheme at any offices. I've done the video interview and presumably passed because I was e-mailed about 2 months later with a Watson-Glaser. It's been another two months since then! Already got 3 VS so not too anxious... but needless to say I'd do four!

    Yes, not everyone was emailed the test so presume this is the final stage and offers will be going out in the next fortnight? I've accepted other offers too, hopefully if I get this offer will be able to fit it in! Well done on your other offers

    Cheers buddy/buddette and you. Bit odd that there's no AC. I think there's quite a rigorous one on the VS though. Good luck and let me know when you hear!

    My guess would be by the end of next week. If the testclosed on Monday night, I reckon that there will be a sieving process of atleast a week. I wonder how they will decide if multiple candidates get the samescores, maybe it will just be back to application form then? Not even sure howthe personality test is scored unless it’s all scored on the SJT and thepersonality component is just to make sure you agree to the parts of the jobwhich are relevant to a legal career. Interesting one....
