Only 3 weeks to apply this year, usually it's the whole month. Hoping it's third time lucky for me.

I have just called the recruitment team with a query and the advisor started rambling about the AA and asked me what job I was interested in with the AA. I explained that my question was about Government Legal Trainee contracts and they gave me a telephone number 0117 923 4417 to call.

This was, er, the number I had called in the first place.

I told them that and they said that I had come through to the wrong team (?????) before hanging up when I asked to speak to a manager!!!

Looks like the Government Legal Profession is now sponsored by the AA. Which is just as well because the system seems to have broken down!!!
To all those thinking of using the legendary SJT key that was circulating, there is important news.

The order of the questions was changed this morning, but this will only affect those who are starting fresh applications from today. The questions will still be the same for everyone, but the proverbial key (probably now owned by half the population) will work for only those who started their application prior to the change. For everyone else, it is the new order though I don't know why people just don't crack on and do the test anyway??

How do I know all this? Well, I finally got through on the 0117 number today with my question about one of the application form sections to be told that there has been a right royal stink about this whole shambolic SJT mess. Even the staff there can't understand why the managers sat on it for so long.

I for one was just glad I hadn't got through to the RAC!!!

Yes, had that as well. Within about an hour of the answers being changed, and then again late last night.

But really not difficult to work up a new key if all they have done is just re-arrange the same questions, because many (myself included) would have made a copy of their application form anyway?

Oh dear.

It is becoming a joke, Ive just had another email, suppose that was always going to happen, the change was just a reorder of the Q's but the answers are exactly the same and in the same order. no leak this time, just someone did a screenshot of the original Q's so they had a record of the original order.

On this one Q's 3. and 14. are the 2 Q's with Least only.
I reckon their going to have to write some new Q's or disguise the answers, who knows where will the madness end??
Ho hum, my application is already in, thank god!

Interesting statement on the main GLS site

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/s...trainee-scheme

not sure what 'robust' means if by the following day a new (3rd) answer key was already widely circulating??:confused:

That is a piss poor statement. They must either wave all of us through to the VRT or start the process again.

agreed. can't see how their 'solutions' can have resolved the problems?seems to be too little, too late.

Your right though, they either need to scrap the SJT test stage, or start again with a new test.
