    I'm 24 and I was the second oldest at our assessment in Newcastle. The eldest was in his 40's though.

    I was genuinely surprised to be offered my 1st choice (finance) as I did feel a bit passed it and out of practice at assessment!
    I'm also 24 and felt older. I received my confirmation email today, I got my second option business admin.

    I've done kind of a statistical analysis.. Assuming, the Civil Service has had 30 assessment days nationwide, each having 25 candidates, therefore, each candidate will have (450/1250)= 36% chance of getting into the civil service..but ofcourse this model has flaws like the number of applicants for a psrticular programme might be greater than another

    Does anybody know how long it takes them to contact references? I'd quite like to talk to my manager before they ask him as I've not mentioned anything to him about leaving and he's been great with me and my hours recently, fitting in around my exams etc, don't want him to just receive a phone call or letter telling him I've applied elsewhere

    veggyem96 I think contacting references will be the last thing they do, so can't imagine it being anytime soon? I'd like to know also due to my current job!

    Have you guys worked for 3 years straight with same manager? Because it states that referees must have known you for at least 3 years in work or educational environment.

    I've got about 15 managers (I work in McDonald's) but I've had 2 of them for about 2 years

    I hope you get it too! And hahahah that is so true!!! Some people may not accept the offer due to the location being too far to travel so I suppose there is still some hope left!
