    Yeah - Still a bit confusing since you'd expect it to be automatic invite considering the time frame. (like Freshfields)

    Will send tonight, and hope to get the test invite on Monday..

    Currently filling out an application that has two separate sections for work experience and vacation schemes. Seeing as I only really have 2 non-legal jobs to put in work experience, and have completed no formal vacation schemes, do you think it is okay to put my legal work experience that I have done under the work experience section and leave the vacation placements blank? The vacation placement section only allows for 2 to be entered. Thanks

    On application form they asked to describe interests and activities, and a question below asked to talk about a task/project in which one did well in. Is it ok to talk about the same task in both questions? Or would it best to think of another example in a task that I did well in?

    Have heard nothing and don't know of anybody who has either, I imagine they will start reviewing from Monday as a lot of graduate recruitment teams won't be returning until then.

    I just been invited to take Verbal, Numerical and Inductive Online Reasoning Tests. I have never done these before, if anyone could provide some tips as to what each entails and/or any free websites on which I can practice these?

    Thanks

    Guys when answering commercial awareness questions do you have to put the source you received the information from?

    Not necessarily.

    The only time I could see it being necessary is if you are quoting someone else's opinion or theory on the matter.

    I have a quick question regarding entering academics - on most applications you have to enter the subject, grade and year taken. However, I re-took a couple of papers in one A-Level and, as a result, I achieved a grade higher in that subject.

    But - I'm not entirely sure how to enter this on the form. Should I enter "Subject, date e.g 2008, grade e.g B" then add the subject again as "Subject, 2009, A". Or should I simple enter it once with the year I re-took the papers? I would really appreciate any help

    I did this also but only re-took one paper. What I've been doing is putting 'Biology, 2014, A' when all my others are 2013, then usually there is a box where you can include any extra information/mitigating circumstances and this is where I've explained it. So long as it doesn't affect whether you met their minimum requirement (typically AAB) initially then I can't see it being an issue.
