Insufficient data, but it must be competitive given high entry requirements

Yes - it's basically a degree apprenticeship. In other words, it comes with a salary.

Which admissions test was that? I've just been invited for the online assessment. Have you done it? How did it go? How long do you have till the deadline to take the test?

Unlucky bro. It sucks that they reject people based off an online test. I am willing to bet there are people out there that cheat on these... I guess you'll only be cheating yourself cause when they ask you for an interview they'll realize. Did you apply for Engineering at Universities on Ucas or any other apprenticeships?

Aptitude tests/problem-solving tests are very common for these kinds of schemes/jobs. It's just another way to filter applicants.

Yh kinda unlucky well there is only like a 5% chance of getting an offer I believe. I'm applying to four general and mechanical engineering on UCAS and a computer science degree apprenticeship partnered with vodafone (bit like this dyson one)

I got the email yesterday, do you think it will be alright if I do the tests on the weekend? It doesn't state the date you have to do the test on the email so i'm assuming you have until you click on the link (which I haven't yet) to do it. Right?

I'm not sure. Best to contact admissions to double check.

Yeah mine are mainly mechanical with 1 General at Warwick (but you get to choose after the 1st year or something). Tbh I don't really find circuits and electricals interesting, i'm more into Materials and T U R B I N E S . Tbh even if I am the 5% that get offered i'm not sure I would do it cause I really want to do an Integrated Masters and prob get a Meng Mech eng, with Dyson I swear all you get after 4 years is Beng General Engineering and after that you're forced to work for them full time :/
