    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
    Yeah I was wondering what that was. Hmm, I'm not too sure - It's only 3 hours? So it can't be that much & also I feel for tests they would at least let us know. I really have no clue

    I don't think we can, for some of the other tests I've done for others logical tests really are not that bad, they are usually based around business situations, I doubt there much we can do to revise. The Q&A session is something I haven't seen other schemes offer so that should be good. It really doesn't seem to strenuous compared to other days so hopefully we should all do well and it's only for a few hours.

    Have you done some logically tests previously? If you have can you give us your experience on it? What was it like. This is my first ever assement centre so I'm ever so nervous. Please if anyone has past experience let us know

    I had to do one as part of my Bank Of England application, this is my first AC too I have just done them as part of different schemes. Also in my Deloitte online tests there were elements in both the verbal and numerical reasoning tests. There are loads of free tests online. They can take so many forms though it could be business scenarios, questions based on the business or just general quick questions.

    Yeah, I've done a few tests before but you never know really because they are all different depending on the company & what they want to find out. I'm glad they've got the Q&A part because I do have some questions. If you type in the tests online they should show you some examples.

    Yeah sounds good.. if you don't do too well does that mean you will be eliminated from the process? It does say alternatives will be discussed do you think there isn't still a chance to get the apprenticeship?

    I'm assuming they'll just explain some options but don't think they'd offer another apprenticeship very strange because I don't know what they mean

    Yesss it was amazing. You Saab taken by into this room with 40 other people they first took pictures and then there's a talk.. and then the group exercise which is not hard at alll. Then the test was like an iq test you have 15 minutes and 50 questions and then you ask the previous apprentices questions. It was a really good day!!!!
