    No finance, there seems to be a lot of ac days - I’m not sure how many places there are. I’m booked in for the afternoon - how about u? Travelling early Friday morning as I live 3 hours away - would be looking at moving to Bournmouth if I get a place - is anyone else moving from home?

    7 hours - wow! - thought 3 was a lot. I’m wondering how many places are available as so many ac days - it seems to be very tough to get a placement there. I’m not too worried about ac day though - I think being yourself and being confident are important - I did an ac day with another company yesterday (first one I’ve done) - it was a group of 12. We had a talk, did 2 group tasks, one to one interview (lasted 30 mins) - at the start we had to introduce ourselves etc - everyone was super nervous at this but it’s fine. Have u applied anywhere else - I’m looking at Barclays when they are advertised but a little stumped as to where to look next

    At least it would be a good expierence to gain but yeah I get You, there's almost no chance but just got to be yourself and who knows what could happen. I have looked at Barclays too but they haven't started receiving applications yet so still have to wait at least we will know straight after the ac day. where was your previous ac at if you don't mind?

    nope not really preped up but will do some research in the coach. I have got another assessment centre at Wipro but that's in May and I need to know what I'm doing ASAP but at least I have a 2nd chance if I don't make it through at JP Morgan top 10 apprenticeship scheme

    well good luck, just be yourself at the ac - they are looking to see how you perform as part of a team too. Also, just have a little knowledge on the company beforehand.
