    I'd hope so. You'd think if there was going to be a delay in letting us know they'd tell us. It's a long time to wait though, my telephone interview was at the beginning of January but obviously there are people who have had it even before that!

    My telephone interview was at the end of November! What's annoyed me more though has been the vague emails.

    Yeah the vague emails have not been helpful. Also it will be pretty annoying to not get through to the Assessment Centre after a month of seeing 'Congratulations!' as my application status

    Anyone heard anything yet?

    They're tweeting good luck to candidates attending assessment centres this week, so presumably some people have been told!

    Hello Heather,

    I received this email today.

    Thank you for your interest in the Ambitious Futures Graduate Scheme.

    Unfortunately we were not able to extend you an invitation to an assessment centre for the position you have applied for as we have now filled our spaces at this assessment centre.

    We would like to congratulate you for making it this far, but assessment centre spaces are very limited and we had more candidates make it to this stage of the process than we were able to accommodate. Accordingly spaces were allocated at assessment centres to the candidates who had scored strongest on the earlier stages of the recruitment process.

    At this moment in time, we are not able to consider your application any further for this year's intake. However, should any more spaces at the assessment centre arise we will be in contact.

    Disappointed considering the positive tone of previous emails.

    Good luck everyone who makes it to the assessment centre.

    Yeah I got the same thing. I really think they could have done a bit less congratulating after the telephone interview! Previous communications have been totally misleading.

    I agree. I would like to give them some feedback regarding the process. I guess I got my hopes up because of all the 'congrats' emails.

    Me too. I think I might ask for feedback on my application and take it from there. That was my first ever telephone interview, so it would be interesting to know how it actually went, and hopefully I'll get a chance to moan about all the misleading emails too

    I still haven't heard so don't know if that's a good or bad thing! Will have to wait and see.

    I totally agree with both your points about the misleading congratulatory emails and if it's bad news for me I will be commenting on that too.

    Did anyone hear anything back about a place at an assessment centre? Heather did you receive any feedback? I've emailed but I'm still waiting on a response.

    Congratulations! Hope it all goes well.

    I'll email about feedback today. I've got a feeling since there's no mention in the email they sent about feedback that we might not get any, but that's a bit rubbish really.

    That's my birthday! Pretty glad I don't have to turn 22 in an Assessment Centre

    Best of luck with it all
