    Sorry I only just saw this, I applied like right before the deadline, it took me ages to come up with an answer to "Tell us about a time when you questioned or challenged the status quo?"
    I was also slightly tripped up because i didnt realise marketing had an earlier deadline than all the other programs untill the last minute.

    I applied I think a few days before the deadline. That question stumped me too, don't think I gave a brilliant answer

    I've had literally no response from Sky, doesn't look good. It's also my first and so far only application. You seem much more organised!

    Yeh it was a really odd question, for the most part you've at least seem something similar before, like "when have you shown leadership qualities" or something. Oh well fingers crossed, does anyone know any of the recruitment statisitics, like how many people take tests, how many people get interviews etc? (from previous years)

    It's 300, but I think it says somewhere that if you have less it's not an auto rejection.

    Edit: just found it in the FAQ on the sky grads website

    I got this sent a few days ago,

    "Dear name....

    Thank you so much for taking the time to apply to our Sky Graduate Programme, we can confirm that your application is still being considered.

    I got sent that exact same email but I think its pretty mucha generic one as soon as you send your application off. I haven't heard anything from them other than that email and I applied in the middle of October. The email was sent 3 days later.
