    Hey,

    I just wondered for those applying to GSK grad scheme this year, how is everyone finding the application process?

    *Btw I'm new to Student Room, in case I have placed this in the wrong area :L

    Hey, what area have you applied for? Ive applied for regulatory affairs. I have found the application process to be ok so far, but i was worried about my logical reasoning test because it was quite quick.

    I have applied to Communication and Government Affairs I put RA as my second preference as it said I could put one

    I didn't have to complete a logical reasoning test, but I found both my numerical and verbal reasoning tests to be really short and quick! Not sure if that's a good or bad thing

    Have you heard anything about whether you've passed the online tests?

    I didnt have to do a verbal reasoning test but my numerical was definitely longer than my logical one. it let me move on to the motivational questions but I think that may just be automatic. When I submitted my application they said the online tests would be reviewed but that was about 2 weeks ago.

    Are you waiting to hear back about being invited to do a video interview?

    Is so, How did it go?
    Yes, I took the interview last night I'm really not sure how it went though :/ I've never done a video interview before or been timed in an interview, which I think is definitely more challenging
    Also it's weird doing an interview in your own house haha

    Fingers crossed anyway!

    Where are you in the application stage?

    Thanks!

    I took ages to complete the motivational questions and then submitted them on the Thursday and heard back on Monday. But I have heard it can differ between programmes, so I wouldn't worry if you haven't heard back for a while! Hearing back from my initial application for online tests took a lot longer. I hope you hear back soon, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you

    Yeah I completed it yesterday. You have roughly 72hrs to complete it. Mine went so bad so I don't hold out any hope that I'll be processed any further 🙈.

    I did mine yesterday too, I phoned them to ask about the deadline. It was my first video interview so considering that it was ok ish, I felt really nervous and awkward at the beginning

    Has anyone been invited to an assessment center for RA yet? I received an email from GSK yesterday morning saying that they will be in contact shortly (by the end of the day) about the outcome of my video interview, but I haven't heard from them since then.
