    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!!!!
    That sounds really nice, Bank of England was so intense today I'm glad that this seems more personality based whereas today was extremely technical. 40 people? so it's quite a big group of people are you split into smaller groups for the assessment?

    Yeah because this is an early stage I think they wanna see your personality and how you deal being around different people. I'm guessing it's 40 of us & then for the group session we get split into smaller groups? Hopefully all goes well see you tomorrow

    I don't think there's any way we can prepare for them. I think it will depend on the task and the people we are grouped with.

    Nope! so hopefully we will find out Monday, how did everyone's days go? It was very much focused on you as a person wasn't it rather than testing any specific technical skills.

    Does anyone know if the Video Interview is done in one go? or do you get to record 2 replies and choose your best one for each question?
