    You have met their requirements for the the first screen. It's hard to tell what they look for next. Have you tried tweeting @NHSGradScheme ?

    Thanks. So the screen won't be held against me. I thought that would have been the case.

    They do aptitude tests and then interviews afterwards.

    How was the whole recruitment/testing process? Do you have finance experience?

    Tough! 14,848 applications for roughly 100 jobs this year. The top 1000 go through for interviews with senior NHS managers and then the top 300-400 go forward to assessment centres at the Leadership Academy in Leeds. All scores are added up but assessment centre is more strongly weighted apparently.

    Not really much finance experience. Couple modules at uni, nothing serious. My brother did the scheme in 2009 so I was able to say I have a good idea of how tough it is etc,

    Less than you think.

    I know someone who did the same grad scheme as both their parents (Civil Service Fast Stream)
