    Hey guys,

    For the Norton Rose 'Describe your involvement in any extra-curricular activities, including positions of responsibility held' (150 words), would it be sufficient to just list the activities and not mention the skills gained? There's not enough space to do both imo.

    Do CC notify you as to whether you've passed the verbal reasoning test and if your application will then be considered? If so, anyone know how quickly they do this?

    (Reason I ask is that I seem to remember somebody earlier in the thread saying they had been told they passed, but not sure if I imagined it...)

    They notified me to say I'd passed - but that was for the first year scheme so I don't know for sure if its the same!

    Cheers for the info - was this immediately after you finished the test or was it some time later?

    They are very quick. I did mine at around half 1 and they told me I passed two hours later.

    (I actually forgot to check for an update, so thanks for reminding me :rolleyes: )

    Nice one, congrats. Was it by email or did you have to log onto the website?

    Not particularly optimistic about my chances but at least I'll be put out of my misery soon enough ha!

    Yes, I've been invited to AC with NRF, I didn't mention the skills gained. You can try to work these in elsewhere in your application!

    No news for me from any more firms today. :-(
