Oh no, sorry to hear that.

Oh no. Sorry to hear this. When was your assessment day? You found out very quick?

Don't let it put you off reapplying. Now atleast you know what to expect from the assessment centre next time x

That’s nice of you ,and I thought of doing the same ,however then I thought I could be giving a candidate I’m competing against an advantage and I thought no way 🤣😂. I went in with no heads up , it’s all in the literature and it’s not as bad as you expect 😊

Haha good point & they swear you to secrecy about what it entails to not give anyone an advantage! Your message the other day summed it up perfectly. The role play is fun - just be yourself. Interview was easiest. & written task you don't quite have long enough.
It's for sure intense though! But that's the whole point. Best advise - be yourselves.

I really hope not. Now I've de-stressed and am home and reflecting. I've came to the conclusion overall it was the best experience!! If only I could do it again now I know what its actually like and won't be caught off guard! But generally I really enjoyed it. Whether I'm successful or not ill always remember it and have learned so much from it! Although it has made me wanna be a probation officer even more lol. The anticipation of waiting for a decision is gonna kill me🙊

Glad you thought the role play was fun that’s what I’ve been most worried about!

So was I. Nowhere near as bad as you think. Be yourself. You'll be fine honestly. All the information is given to you prior.

Someone made a comment before about the lack of feedback and that's true. You don't get any. Because that's why you wait for a decision afterwards. However you are given clear instructions for each activity so don't worry.

I’d agree that some parts of the day were enjoyable and I also enjoyed the role play and interview .some aspects I felt I performed really well , and others did like to do again 😂 I had a wobble in the written though and thought , if I don’t start writing soon I’m not going to have anything to hand in ( think I was reading and digesting it all do about 25 mins , which didn’t leave a lot of time at all 😬) what will be will be and as you say , it was a great experience.
