    I have also completed my phone interview and got through to the assement centre they have not told me about what the day will consist of so it's hard to prepare

    Hi,
    I did my telephone interview around the start of march & found out 24 hours after I did it that I had made it through to the assessment centre.
    I received an email confirming the dates and times, but no information on any of the tasks & so I'm not sure what to expect or how to prepare. Anyone know?

    Yeah, it sounds frustrating though because you want to do the best you can especially with such an amazing opportunity. Mine is on the 19th April. What about yourself? How's your a levels going what did you pick?

    It seems we are all in the same boat. It's so annoying because you want to do as well as possible. Mines on the 21st of April is anyone else's then? I've emailed BPP loads and they aren't responding at al. I hope they get back to us soon just so we have a slight idea.
    Has anyone applied to any other schemes?

    Yes exactly that sounds what I have done aswell. On the application I got emailed to me it's just says that in the assement day there's will be team work activities and a Q & A however when I research about the J.P Morgan assement day it talks about logical reasoning test and logical thinking tests so I'm ever so confused in regards tic how to prepare. I wish they could email a schedule that mentions what's going on,on the day

    Has anyone looked into what to expect. There's so many different things online and I'm skeptical on some information because its in relation to the graduate scheme. I'm hoping that they are just waiting a few days before telling us to make it harder. Because unlike other schemes this stage isn't even the end. I'm sure everyone has it but just in case I've attached the course layout.

    Yeah I got That in an email. Yeah! I've looked into previous years & the graduate scheme and they all said they received information & some of it looks very hard! Don't know how they expect us to prepare!

    So annoying because you want to go in as prepared as possible. I'm starting to think if it's an issue with BPP as I've looked and JP Morgan have nothing to do with the program until the assessment days, so if it's a fault on the end of BPP then it makes it harder. I'm going to phone my contact tomorrow and see what they say and if not just phone JP Morgan recruitment number and see if they have anything to offer. It could just be it's to make it harder and that there is in fact not much prep needed but it's the lack of communication that makes it worse! What date is your AC?

    Hi! Mine is the same day as yours. I'm going to contact my tutor and ask if he knows anything. I really want to do well & the lack of info isn't helping, unless it is like you said and not much to prep for. At least the person before ^^ has their day on the 19th hopefully they can let us know what it is like!

    Hiya, glad I'm going first haha.. hopefully all goes well. I've come to the conclusion being yourself should be enough to show them how much you really want this. The rest isn't in their hands. Hopefully all goes well

    Yeah! Least it's out the way!!! I'll be sitting at home nervously waiting haha! But yeah that's what I thought - it's not the last round (which I was surprised at) so they haven't said much so surely they want to see how much you want it & how well you work in a team I guess

    Yeah I guess so. It is mentioned on the scheme that we was emailed it says unsuccessful candidates would discuss alternatives so I wonder what that could be. But I think the should definitely send us something. What sort of tests do you think they will conduct? I'm guessing mostly team work. But reasearching demon last year they mention logically reasoning tests
