    Bring absolutely everything mentioned in the email, make sure the passport photo says that it is a true likeness of yourself, they're pretty stringent.
    It says the passport photo needs to be signed and dated by a "person of standing" to confirm that it is a true likeness. So who could that be?

    Most professionals and government people; medical workers, police, teachers, directors of businesses.. I referred to the government issued list of who can be a person on standing for passport photos, a quick Google will help.

    Make sure it's signed, dated and has something to say it's a true likeness, I didn't know I had to get them to write it's a true likeness so they asked me to rectify that and post it to them :-/

    Anybody that's already had an assessment: is a dress/skirt and/or heels suitable? I don't know what to expect! Also, how long is each session? Is there a lot of waiting around between sessions?
    Thanks in advance

    Me too! Glasgow? Seems so long away but we won't even hear the outcome till June.

    Good luck to those who haven't got the assessment date yet! I thought I absolutely bombed the online tests as I done it after a long shift and left numerical to last so I couldn't even read a sentence by that point so I'm sure there's hope yet.

    Anyone know what the 45 minute written test will be on?

    I thought I'd bombed the tests as well, looking back I don't think I did too bad all together, hopefully enough to get an assessment

    I thought my performance on the tests was abysmal actually. Hence, you can all imagine my reaction (utter shock) when I received an invite to the assessment center.

    Good luck to those of you who received their invitations to go to the assessment centers. If you haven't, chin up, dust yourself off and move on to the next one- your future is bright.

    When speaking to the guys at the assessment centre there is supposed to be loads more interviews going out over the next month so if you haven't had a reply yet I wouldn't worry too much they'll just be doing it in groups

    I have received an email today at 1pm inviting me to the assessment centre in Manchester, but when I tried booking it at on the same day at 9pm it said No slots available... Is it the same for anyone else? I emailed them ASAP, kinda scared now that I won't get my assessment at Manchester anymore since it says "no slots available" and not letting me choose anything...

    Did you get this resolved? The same has just happened to me.

    By the way guys, what kind of documentation you need to bring with you? I read the email and the attached file, but just wanted to make sure.

    Do I actually need to bring a signed photo by a professional, or is that just one of the options? I cannot bring my passport because I applied for something and it is in HM now, should be getting it back in june or so.

    I thought of bringing obviously my GCSE and a-level certificates, provisional driving license (and paper part), recent payslip and a bank statement.


    Do you think that is enough to cover everything?
    Hi, I've got my assessment day on Wednesday in London but didn't receive an attached file to download with information, I'm concerned as I know some people have.

    What does it say in the pack? You able to send it to me please to have a look at?? Good luck!

    Relieved to hear that, as I completed my tests almost immediately at the beginning of March but have not heard anything since, are you sure that they are still inviting people to the assessment center?
