    I applied to the Enforcement stream and have been invited to an assessment centre. Was hoping to get into the one next week but now it's full. Wondering if anybody is also attending the assessment centre and would possibly be able to swap to the mid December or mid January date? I'll be out of the country during that period so the November date is the only one I'll be able to make...

    At my AC we were told that there are 3 ACs booked in - I would assume that one will definitely be held in December as we were told offers are handed out by Jan.

    I remember reading in two-year-old forum some people got to AC and passed and later found out there were no more spaces available in recruitment. FCA application deadline closes late but they do emphasise that they recruit on a continuing basis.

    Maybe those ACs listed above are only for one scheme?

    I went to an AC for enforcement and we were told there are 3 for enforcement, but every scheme followed v similar lines so I'd assume there are 3 for all the rest.

    We were told - like people from those old forums - that if you either failed or spectacularly passed the benchmark, you would know in one to two weeks. If you passed the benchmark but weren't outstanding you have to wait along with everyone else till all of the ACs have taken place.

    Btw how did you find the analysis exercise? (I did AC last year and that was the most traumatising exercise to me)

    Oh man it was definitely the worst part for me and I think everyone else - I went for quality over quantity but who knows!

    last year it was my first exercise during the day and I almost walked out of the AC... I stuck to it...dd not pass in the end, but good experience. I still would not know how to successfully approach that task again.
