    Hi everyone,

    I'm applying for various graduate schemes at the moment and was wondering what type of experiences people have had when applying. Do they all do those pyschometric tests and then an assessment centre with other people there?

    I'd love to know what type of companies do this in the Manchester area

    Thanks very much!

    I can't offer any advice in the Manchester area, but there's often a pretty huge variety of different types of assessment!

    I went through the Civil Service FastStream assessment process, and for that there was an initial online application form, there were literacy and numeracy tests, a Social Research assessment centre (which had a writing task, a statistical/methodology exam and an interview), an online e-tray exercise and then the general FastStream assessment centre (a group task, writing exercise, leadership exercise and then an interview), so a pretty long process!

    Can't help with any other graduate schemes, but if you want to know more about any of the types of assessment used above free feel to ask.
