I suggest that those who have upcoming assessment centres try to prepare for strength based questions. The questions aren't difficult or new. The only thing is the way they are asked can make it seem like they're trying to catch you out. Also, don't only bank on what you see on online forums....the strength based interview was with HR and one or two managers.
Group exercise, don't talk over others as usual and try to have good reasons for backing your team opinion up. Don't go in with a competitive mentality it won't help....it'll be really obvious to them. Don't forget it's not a competition....you're being judged based on what they perceive of you as a person.

I did the video interview on Friday and just heard back today that I have made it to the next stage.

The questions I got asked did not have any direct relevance to the scheme I applied for, they were more strength based.

The first question I got asked was "What do I like to do in my spare time?"

A fair while! I got an email maybe a week to a week and a half afterwards saying that i'd failed the online tests, then got another email a week or so later saying that they were ironing out creases with a new recruitment platform and that i'd actually passed. So roughly 2-3 weeks i'd say.

I got an email saying i'd passed my video interview over a week ago and was told i'd hear more regarding an assessment centre shortly and haven't heard anything yet, so i wouldn't worry too much.

I don't remember to be honest, nearly 2 weeks ago now and i've been doing quite a few video interviews for grad schemes. Just make sure youve got a few strength based examples prepared and you should be fine

i've applied to tax too, and waited a month. Got a generic email on friday saying that they are priortising january intakes right now and we will hear from them closer to the New year. Think AC will take place in january 19 for august intake

I applied for Cyber Specialist... At least you know what's going on. Wonder when i'll hear something. I was under the impression Cyber Specialist was for January intake but im guessing its a bit late in the day for that now.
