hi! has anyone here applied for the GES-DAP higher economist degree apprenticeship with the civil service?

i’m really confused about the word count for the written statement. there’s 3 questions to answer with a 250 word maximum limit but the word count is 1200??

Yes

I have just submitted my application 5 minutes ago.

It is 250 each for 3 sections. There was an admin error so they have used this section of the initial application as a place to write your personal statement.

I was wondering whether I could even hack this, as it is a full time job and degree at the same time.

thank you! so just to confirm, it’s only the 3 questions you answer?? you’re not expected to write a whole 1000 word statement?

Had my assessment day a few days ago and it was okay overall. The oral briefing was probably the hardest imo, interview and writing tasks were alright. But I felt for the oral briefing preparation and writing assessment they didn’t give enough time - 40 mins for oral briefing presentation and 30 mins for writing task. The time goes by quick when you have to read and take in a lot of information.

Yea I struggled with interview too tbh and didn’t have much to say. What do you mean by demographic? There were 10 people there most which were male candidates

Interview was aight for me what really messed me over was the written task couldn't finish in time.
