Got an email today saying that I passed the job simulation but are progressing with other candidates first. They said they’ll let me know after 6th December if I have progressed to the final stage
Similar situation to me except I am at IOA stage

Just wanted to drop in and say not to feel disheartened if you get the ‘progressing other candidates first’ email.

I received this email last year when applying for SVS but I actually made it through all stages eventually, got an offer, had a really great SVS experience and now hold a graduate offer.

No guarantees but it’s not necessarily bad news!

Hey! I can’t seem to see a thread for this intake so I thought I’d make one.

What stream has everybody applied for and how far through the process are they?

Has anyone heard back about assessment centres?

Good luck!

I just finished my immersive assessment. I got numerical interpreter as my weakness. I think that’s it for me in the process
Hey there! I hope you don't mind me asking if you remember what any of the maths questions were like?

Basiccaly it starts with competency questions with sprinkled in math questions, you have a variety of sources which u need to read and calculate from, it does take awhile to do the maths questions but the test isn't timed so relax.

Ah ok thank you! I applied for a strategy & operations role, have you done the same, will the test be similar across all of these roles?

Has anyone heard back following their email regarding the Assessment Centres? I know they said places will be confirmed by 4th Nov but I can't stop myself from checking my emails all the time.

Hey! I'm applying for a grad scheme and was invited to the online job assessment. What sorts of questions did you get? Was it mostly competency based questions, or more related to the situation they gave you?Also what was the writing task like? I read it somewhere that it's writing an email to your colleagues/clients? Are the questions timed?

The job simulation was fine. Just a mixture of situational interview questions and the writing task was fine - just based on a job situation they give you. Each question was timed.
