    It's been 5 weeks for me and I still haven't received my date, which is why I was surprised that ^ reafad had his on Wednesday for the same role and locations as me. I phoned them up 2 weeks ago and they told me that they'll give me a date by the end of the week. So I'll phone them up again on Monday.

    Oh thats weird. I emailed them last week too as I couldn't speak to the guy when he called me asking them to phone me back but i've had no response for that either. Have you applied to any other school leaver schemes?

    Congratulations
    For the AC, I would say be yourself! For the group assessment, make sure you put your ideas across persuasively, make sure you include everyone, praise others, keep an eye on the time and remind the group how much time is left. For the presentation, be confident and you'll be fine
    Have you got a date for your AC yet?

    Thanks for your reply! Are you allowed to use PowerPoint slides for the presentation? And are the group and written exercises things you can plan for or not?

    No worries! Nope, its just on a paper. Its just you and a manager that you present to. Its not that scary tbh
    Nope, you get all the information on the day and it really isn't hard

    Let me know when yours is and if you have any questions you can just PM me and if you get in, I'll see you in september hopefully

    Hey what office did you apply for?
    The day consists of a group assessment, presentation and interview. You'll also have to complete a written piece of work during the day.
