    they said that they aim to let us know by the end of the week.
    does anyone else find attending their designated assessment day (if we get through) to be quite tricky? thought it was meant to be the week before..

    Mine will be on my 21 birthday if I get through to it - a good present if I get the job but a horrible way to spend my day if I don't! I think it always said 2-4 July on their website didn't it?

    Nope not yet - its annoyingly short notice especially since its summer holidays.. fingers crossed though! Anyone have any idea how many people make it to assessment days? Would be interesting to know what your chances are once you're there..

    Haven't heard anything yet. Hope we can get the answer soon. If passed the language test, better to have more time preparing for the assessment centre...

    I know what you mean. It's such short notice. I live in Scotland so the train fare is going to be a bomb as well...

    HOPEFULLY if attending an assessment centre we will be able to reclaim expenses.. most big organisations do for these kinds of grad schemes. It's like we're all in limbo.. !

    It will probably be at least half a day - with some different group tasks as well as the individual interviews. I think they often have lunches or something more informal as well to see how you interact within a more casual context too. So yea quite intense!

    Best of luck guys! I speak fluent Spanish (studied it at university, lived in Latin America for 2 years and my boyfriend is Latino). I'm thinking of applying for the 2014 scheme and hoping Spain/LatAm is an option next year! Will no doubt be counting on all your wonderful advice

    Just got an email and I was unsuccessful - wish there'd been a bit more feedback on why.

    Congrats to everyone who got through and good luck for the assessment days and everyone who hasn't heard yet!

    Hey, I'll be there on Thursday too, but for the India programme. It looks like they might be staggering the times of everyone's assessments. I'm really glad there's not a group exercise..I'm awful at those!! Well I assume the role play one isn't a group exercise anyway.. :s

    Also, good luck to all those who got through to the assessment. MaijaEliina - that's annoying you didn't get feedback. I've got to the assessment and interview stage of some jobs and have still been refused feedback which was really frustrating. Just have to keep at it!
