    Yeah, when was your AC, mine was 14th April, did you get that info pack 2 weeks late too?

    17th april so we were quite early! No I got it the same day I was invited to the AC. You got it late? That's unfair tbh could've put you at a disadvantage, all due to Capita's incompetencies. Lame

    Just in case I will need to send the extra documents - when they are talking about signed photos, does it only need to have full name, signature and date? Or do I need to provide contact information or something of the person who signed it?

    For those who were successful, do you know if your references were contacted

    The ID photograph will require to be signed with a declaration as if you were using it for your passport, I'd suspect.

    I had to do it when I worked at the CS previously and I made sure it was signed/declared appropriately this time around.

    I know it's really getting me down not knowing either way, I want this so bad but I think chances are looking v slim now... :/
    I know what you mean, don't give up just yet, it's not over until it's over. Quite a few people have heard back this week so it's still not too late eh.

    Yep, seems like those of us who went to AC the earliest, have had the worst deal!

    Have you got any other plans?

    I've got my uni place confirmed for Sept but I don't want to go, would much prefer this apprenticeship... if I don't get this I'll probably start looking into full time employment tbh! And you?

    Didn't want to go to uni, so will probably do the same as you, look for a job, the annoying thing is that there are some other good programmes out their for A Level leavers but they all start in Sept and due to this can't apply.

    Interesting, if I can't get through to them on the phone, I might pop in to the AC in London and see if someone will speak to me as they have that reception thing and will try and find out what is going on.

    In a similar situation, only have come across one successful applicant from Yorkshire so far. Fingers crossed.

    Anyone else go to MK on the 29th last week? I went for the cyber security role.

    I got that document confirmation email earlier and will know if I passed assessment centre in the next 10 days I think, hope I get it!

    Hi All,

    Congratulations to all who have heard so far good to see and hopefully anyone waiting will get a positive Email ASAP as the waiting has been driving me crazy!

    I got an E-mail today asking to make sure i have sent all relevant documents to Capita by the 8/6/15 things such as Passport, Driving licence... I took all this information with me to the AC. So hopefully they don't need anything more. I was just wondering if anyone else had the E-mail. It said they should confirm role in the next 10 days...

    I went to the London AC on the 29/4/15 and applied for cyber security in the South West.

    Thanks all.
