    Have a look through the responses on Glassdoor, there's a few people who've posted their experience and may be useful to you.

    Congrats!

    I've also progressed to this stage, I believe they have details on their website, along with graduate reviews from wikijobs & graduate.com that are pretty decent.

    I hope the timing of the assessment centre is better than BT's usual timekeeping- we'll come between 8 and 1 is an approximation not an appointment.

    Yes this Wednesday coming! Have they told you anything about preparing a presentation? because some online forums say others had to do this but I have not been told to prepare anything?

    Yeah I was confused about that too! When I spoke to the lady on the phone, she said that there will be 4 tasks on the day. Nothing to prepare beforehand i.e. presentation. I also spoke to one of our alum's who is on their grad scheme atm and she says they've changed one of their tasks so I'm guessing it is probably that? Or perhaps they will give us time to prepare one on the day?
