Did you apply for the spring insight scheme.

Was that in one email, or one saying that you passed, and then one email saying that you had the 2 tests and VI

they were in the same email but I think they have a glitch in their system as I got literally 10 emails from them all slightly different variations of each other ahahah

For anyone who’s taken the HSF test, have you heard back yet and if so how long did it take?

Anyone have any idea on how many applicants per place there are for these schemes?

It took me about 30-40 minutes I'd say, and I heard back reasonably quickly (I think in about a day).

Three days, which is exciting. They'll pay for my accommodation, meals, travel etc too which is awesome.

Not yet!

I’m sorry was this after or before the SJT and did they say why (e.g because of SJT Mark?)

Commiserations.
I suppose this means they're making decisions now, so I look forward to my (likely) rejection - I know these places are competitive!

Looking on the bright side, even if you get rejected the application process for these schemes is good practice for when we apply for TCs and vacation schemes.

I didn't get an email, logged on to the portal and they made decision today. I passed the SJT. Funnily enough I know an ex-partner at A&O and he told me first year schemes are just a distraction and not worth anything. Maybe he just means the small one day ones.

They've not said why yet, maybe an email is on its way
