Sorry if this is a really dumb question but I'm not sure what to do!
I was sick during GSCE's so I only did 7, I think that if I was a potential employer questions would pop into my head as to why an applicant didn't have the usual number.
The system gets you to insert each qualification manually so there's nowhere for me to put: (extenuating circumstances). I just feel like having less GSCE's than average without explanation will look bad.
Then again, does it look more dodgy if I don't put my GSCE's down, as they may think I don't have A-C in core subjects? Does this hold true, even given the context that my a-level grades were A*A*A?
I don't know how the HR system works, will they autoreject if they don't see grades for GSCE maths etc? Or since what this job is asking for is a particular kind of degree will they only autoreject if you don't have that?
Also does anyone have any idea how long from interview the civil service jobs starts? I preferably wouldn't start till summer but I don't know if there's any flexibility about this!
Finally I'm a bit confused because I have also applied for the fast stream (but not feeling too hopeful after the dreaded video interview, aha ) and the salary is better for this non fast stream graduate job. What gives?
... and the ones that won't
