    Hey! I was at the same assessment and have been offered a place too! Congrats

    For anyone who has yet to do their assessment - I would really just echo what other people have said in this thread. The day is actually really enjoyable and so well organised. Just be yourself, they're not trying to catch you out

    My assessment was on the 10th, and I had a phone call to say I'd been successful 6 days later! The assessment is basically 6 different 20 minute activities.

    Hi everyone. Congrats to all offered a place so far! I had my assessment in Birmingham on Fri 18th Dec, and I've been offered a conditional place. So so excited! Although I'm worried because I have a holiday booked next August and I really hope this doesn't affect my offer! Ive been advised to discuss it in the new year. Is anyone in a similar situation?

    Hi everyone, congratulations to all of you who have been offered places! I'm a little concerned as my assessment centre isn;t til the end of January and that seems quite late...do you think all the places will have gone?

    They said they are doing assessments until February so I highly doubt all the places will be gone!! I don't think they're doing many assessments either so don't worry there will be plenty of places. Best of luck! It's a really fun day so try not to let the nerves take over!

    Hi I'm attending soon! How did you find it it - any particular questions/tasks that were difficult? Would appreciate any help!

    Hi Aisha, we were asked not to talk about the tasks because it would give people who knew about them ahead of time an unfair advantage. But don't worry, they don't expect any prior knowledge and they're not trying to trip you up or catch you out - they want to see the best of you and what you can do. At the end of day, they just want to know if you're suitable so just be yourself. It's very interesting and ridiculously well-organised! I had my assessment on the 18th and was offered a place on the 22nd. Good luck to you!

    Hi Mophead. You must have been at my assessment, in Birmingham? Congrats! I wonder how many others from our assessment got offered a place? Becky

    Can I ask what the dress code was please? I don't seem to have been given any information in my email confirmation. Were people in suits or were they just dressed smartly?

    Professional dress generally. I don't think you have to be in a suit – some people were but most were just dressed fairly smartly, like you would have to for a general office job.

    I just looked back at my confirmation email and it says "please dress professionally". People were dressed very smartly at my assessment, a lot of people were in full suits, I just wore smart trousers and a blouse with a cardigan

    Good luck!
