    Oh my God. Does this mean we find out TODAY?!
    I hope so! I'd just talked myself out of being excited to know before the weekend but now I'm all giddy again! Not sure my nerves can take much more of this! ha ha.

    The same here. I'd psyched myself up to expect to find out the soonest in like July. I seriously hope that by the wording on their Twitter account they actually do mean today.

    To the entire recruitment team if they are reading this forum, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING US THROUGH?!

    I think I need a cup of tea. Or something stronger.

    Here's the latest updates from the twitter feed for those still waiting to hear back after their assessment centres:

    "Hi, if you haven't [heard back] then it's possible that you've scored well enough to not be dismissed but not well enough to automatically get through. You will be told if you are unsuccessful or on the reserve list. We tell the highest and lowest scores first."

    I know, a set date would be fantastic or at least "within x days" or "between x and x days"

    Hi

    I have applied for commercial in London/Reading. What is the likelihood of (if I receive a placement) of being placed in London? This is my ideal location as I ideally do not want to relocate just yet.

    So I'd hope to hear very soon regarding my application, as it's been over 1 month and 1 week since I went to the assessment centre. Hope the wait is worth it!

    Emailed capita about two weeks ago and finally got this response about my operational delivery application

    18th June 2015





    Dear Andrew,

    Thank you very much for applying to join our Public Service Operational Delivery Apprenticeship Scheme, and for coming along to our assessment centre.

    We are not yet in a position to advise you of your outcome. However, you did perform well at the assessment centre and we feel it is important to keep you informed.

    With nearly 300 apprentices to place in over 50 locations, finalising the merit list to determine which candidates will be offered places and who will be placed on a reserve list, is taking slightly longer than anticipated.

    We appreciate that you will be eager to find out and commit to advising you of the outcome by 3rd July at the latest.

    Kind regards,

    Civil Service Operational Delivery Team

    Hope this helps some people

    I received the same email and I haven't contacted them before so I think they are sending this to people who have still got a chance!

    I also received this email today. I'm guessing it's sent out to those of us who are near the top of the merit list incase any of those with offers reject there's. Fingers crossed we still have a chance.
