    Well, at least we got this far.

    Really beginning to wonder whether the standard for the CRT is ridiculously high - or whether I am just not built for those types of tests

    That's my applications done for the Summer. Tomorrow is another day I suppose - time to dust myself off and focus for the exams ahead #downbutnotout
    I was offered an assessment place, but this is my third year on the trot and the 1st time I've gotten this far. Don't get down hearted. I had 5 years doing the fast stream and never got even as close as the e-tray!

    If you're headed to Bar school you'll have to the horrid BCAT anyway, it's pretty similar to the CRT and might just give you that little edge for next time.

    Was it your first time trying?
    It was my first time but I'm already 23 years old. I worry this is it for me..

    Been told I passed the CRT but didn't score high enough overall to get a place at assessment centre... Gutted... 😢
    Same. It's tough because you need to be in the top 150 out of thousands. I wanna know what percentile I was in though.

    Yeah it was. I tried last year but there was an error with my application so it wasn't submitted. So technically yes my first attempt. I'm also 23

    I know there has already been helpful advice posted on here about the interview, but does anyone have any tips on how to handle the assessment centre? I'm particularly thinking about how to impress on the written exercise and the motivational questions.

    The GLS has been more helpful than any employer I've encountered in providing information on what the process will be like, but any tips from those who have been through it in previous years would be invaluable!!

    I was also wondering if anyone had any insight into the departmental selection form? Go for the dept. with the most spaces as most preferable or do they not really take this into account in the selection process?

    Any advice would be most appreciated!

    Have those who have already done the AC already found out if they passed or failed it?

    I wouldn't hold your breath, as the AC is still going on tomorrow. I'm guessing they will want to do standardisation together and since they won't start marking until all interviews are over I would have guessed Tuesday at the earliest.

    Did they let you know it would be Thursday? Will be looking out in email tomorrow if that's the case!

    I was told today was the last day of AC and they'd let us know if we'd passed tomorrow. Then they'll tell us if we have a TC by the 1st Sept.

    You're right. I checked and they'll let us know by 8pm tomorrow. They're now saying we'll find out about the TC on 1st or 2nd.
