    I'm still waiting to hear and its over 4 weeks now since I had my interview, i got in contact after two weeks as advised and still none the wiser! My account still says they've got in touch about my telephone interview. At this stage I'm assuming I haven't got it, but it would just be nice to be told!

    Also still waiting for Oxford. It's getting very frustrating as my phone interview was 6 weeks ago!

    Lots of people have been tweeting them asking when they'll hear back, and everyone's just gotten the standard "we are currently getting in touch with everyone" response, so hopefully we'll all hear back soon-ish! It is very frustrating though having to wait this long

    I rang them on Monday as it's been over a month since my phone interview, and they said that mine has been screened and passed onto the university (Oxford) who now make the decision, so there is hope yet as it seems like some unis are just being slower than others!

    I just logged into my account by chance, and it says I've made it to an assessment centre! There's no option to actually select an assessment centre yet, so I guess they're still finalising dates for this etc (this is for Manchester btw), but it's nice to *finally* know best of luck everyone!

    Hi guys, those of you who have not heard, I definitely get the impression that each university does the process on slightly different timescales, so don't worry if someone for another uni has already heard. All I know for sure is that the Cambridge process is complete, with offers made, so hopefully anyone who's applied for Cambridge has heard either way.

    Just wanted to say, those being invited to AC - it's a really enjoyable day and honestly there is nothing you can do to prepare EXCEPT for researching what the scheme involves, why you are interested in it etc. The rest, you get given plenty of preparation time for each activity.

    All this is available on the website but if anyone's wonderding, our day consisted of:
    - 60 min analysis exercise - reading through material and writing a response
    - Role play exercise - 30mins to prepare then 15min role play
    - Strengths based Interview - lasting anywhere from 30mins to an hour
    - Team Meeting exercise
    - Self reflection task (where you write short responses about what you did well/not so well)

    It was a looong day, but getting to chat to the other applicants and we also had a chance to chat to some current trainees over lunch - was really nice, and helped us find out more about it.

    Good luck with any ACs coming up!
