Hi everybody,
Got an email today from the good folks over at IBM. Unfortunately, I didn't make it past the matching pool. I just want to take the time and congratulate everyone who passed the pool I know that stuff is nervewracking.

If anyone's curious I did my AC in early July, and only received the result today.
I thought you stayed in the matching pool for up to a year? Or was it that you were not successful in getting to it in the first place? Bit confused and now worried, as far as I know I’ve been in it for the past 4 months and still waiting!

I passed the assessment centre, I was informed that no suitable role was available for me.

Same here, I'm now planning on doing a shorter apprenticeship, but am hoping to try and reapply or go to uni in a couple years time. Bit of a shame but glad I tried, well done and good luck with you next steps!

Just to let everyone know - I received no such email. However I did login to my IBM job portal and see the same message. However I contacted the team and they informed me it was and was an error and I am very much still in the pool! Just a technical glitch! Anyone else had this experience?

Same thing happened to me and emailed them however they are now saying any opportunities that arise will be for 2020 hiring. So gutted cause I could’ve gone to uni now just have to play the waiting game.

Hi, i know its kinda late but i just retook my october A-levels and i was thinking of maybe starting this apprenticeship with IBM. I did apply last year but i wasnt in the UK for 5 years and i am Norwegian, so they rejected me, do u reckon that they will reconsider me because of all the Brexit stuff going on plus in may 2021, that is when i will be in Uk 5 full years. Thank u in advance

If you have been in the UK for 5 years by the time you apply, you should be fine.

When do applications open and close. I registered my interest on the IBM website but I haven't received any update or notification.

did you have the IBM IPAT test to do aswell:

IBM Numerical series: you will be presented with a sequence of numbers or symbols and will have to identify patterns to choose the next item in the sequence
IBM Numerical reasoning test; this is made up of 20 questions and will present you with a longer problem, that will require a number of steps to arrive at the right answer
