    How soon do you find out whether you've passed the numerical test?
    If this is for the audit programme I think you find out straight after you take it as they a set standard you have to achieve 😀

    No, it's a paid 12 month gap year scheme Their higher apprenticeships also open up in January.

    I was under the impression the applications opened in September so it's a little strange how late they're leaving it. Getting a little antsy because I'm a year older and I'm starting uni in 3 days so I really need to know what's happening with my life

    How are you applying to this scheme if you already go to uni? This is for school leavers

    I only just completed my A-levels and haven't started uni yet, so I'm still allowed to apply. I had no idea about this programme when I was filling in my UCAS, 1000% would have applied if I'd known about it

    So if you get on this scheme, are you going to drop out of uni? You won't find out if you get on for a few months at least.

    Yeah I know, of course I'm prepared for uni and I'll work hard under the assumption I won't get a place on the scheme, but if I'm offered a place I will probably drop out at the end of Year 1.

    Wow, that's terrible. Durham can piss right off. I don't know the exact numbers, but this has probably just made this programme twice as competitive. Unless quite a lot of people were only applying for Durham.

    Hey, is there anywhere to help with filling it out?
    Can't find anything on the website, and not really sure what to put for the Academic Reference.
