    I'm sure it will be soon, they did have 35,000 applicants. And 400 successful apprentices which will take time to filter through..
    35,000?!! I thought it was in the thousands, not tens of thousands! :O
    That's crazy!!

    When I was at the assessment centre that is what I was told.. That is why those who have received an offer should be proud and grateful

    They didn't have anything close to that figure. The guy at my assessment centre told me just under 2000 applicants had been invited to the assessment centres. I doubt 33,000 others didn't make it through any stage.

    May I ask where you got that figure from? The guy at my assessment centre said they received around 2000/2500 applicants at the time!

    Has anyone heard back, I've been for an assessment day in Manchester and I still haven't had an email saying if I've got it or not! It's been a month, shall I just take it that I haven't got it? I thought they have to give you feedback when you go for an interview
    I haven't heard anything yet and I had my assessment centre in Manchester. Was your location preference North West as well?

    Ah yeah that is true! Maybe there was a high number who applied, then they narrowed it down to say 10,000, and then subsequently 2000 or so for interviews. Nevertheless, those who have been accepted have done very well indeed, and even those who are yet to receive confirmation should be proud of how far they have come!

    Exactly what I am saying! They likely eliminated people during the online stages etc, we should be proud, but if people are expecting feedback it will take time. It will be soon!

    Got my "we have noted your acceptance and have advised the client directly" response email a few minutes ago, so all good and nothing to worry about for me now (so happy).

    Fast track all received their acceptances on 3rd June and had to accept by the 8th.. Many didn't receive emails back confirming they had gotten the reply, hence why many have phoned civil service. They have received your email however due to loads of emails they have been unable to reply to them, so don't worry too much! I'm sure they got your confirmation, it's likely that if they hadn't they would email you again just to confirm your response hope it helps

    I believe most (if not all) fast track offers were handed out on or around the 4th June. Probably most of the offers were accepted, inundating Capita with emails (along with enquiries from people who hadn't heard), I imagine there were some refusals, and those places will be redistributed once they've got themselves sorted. They may have already done this, but that's an unknown as most of my knowledge is taken from this thread, which is only a small representation of how the process is progressing.

    Obviously this is all speculation, it may be worth tweeting them with your question at @CSFastTrackApp.
    I've just noticed that they've replied to someone saying you should find out by the end of this week whether you've been successful.
    Hope this helps.

    Ah thank you, we have to reply by tomorrow so maybe I will give them a call then.

    Does anyone have the right phone number for capita? 😊
