    Hello,

    So is it possible to make another application for a Grad scheme of the same intake year to a company that I have applied (and failed) before?

    I've heard that some do it with a different email but considering that I made it to the AC the first time someone might remember my details along the way.

    Is it worth contacting HR and asking them if I can reapply or would I practically have zero chances?

    Highly unlikely they will allow it. If they allowed you to do it, they would have to let everyone do it, meaning 100s if not 1000s of more applications.

    Why not just wait for next year's recruitment process if you are that keen to join?

    Don't wanna wait a whole year doing nothing, and it really buzzes me for losing that AC because it was mainly due to my inexperience/anxiety. I am almost certain that if I had it now I would pass it.

    Call them and ask then. Rather than reapplying, if they felt it was appropriate to bring you through again, they would just get you to retake the assessments at the final stage.

    If you reapply, it's likely you will just get a flat rejection where it's a duplicate application. Most applicant tracking systems make it fairly easy to identify duplicate applications from the same person.

    Highly unlikely that they will consider another application if that's the case.

    It is highly unlikely either way - if they thought it was worthwhile reconsidering you they would have informed you of that and the process you would have needed to complete.

    At best I think your option will be to reapply next cycle.
