    Hi guys I've been invited to my first assessment centre and the e-mail stated that we have to dress smart. Now I am going to wear a full business suit but am I allowed to wear a coat on top or should I just wear the formal jacket with nothing else on top?
    The thing is the coat that I have does not look very smart.

    I'm sure it will be fine. If you are that worried, take the coat off just before you enter the building. I doubt many will notice it if you are carrying it instead.

    Surely you can take your coat off when you get there? They can't expect you to freeze on your way to their assessment day

    You could get a new coat. If in doubt, spend money and invest in clothes. Just don't go overboard and put yourself in too much debt. You don't want to leave the assessment centre, fail, and then think 'if only I had dressed a bit smarter'.
