Hi, I have applied for the PQIP intake for July 2020 and I'm just wondering if anyone here has ever applied and knows what the "application on hold" means? I applied right when applications opened on June and have been waiting well over a month now. Once applications closed 3 days after I received the message to say my application was on hold and I'd be contacted on the next stage of recruitment. I may be over thinking it but does this mean my application has been accepted and they're waiting on assessment centre dates or is it just a general message?

Hey! It’s just a general message unfortunately, I think it means they’ve marked it but they need to mark everyone else before making a decision. I got rejected in January, hoping for a different outcome this time!

Thank you! I was told it's not a bad thing as if it was marked and rejected they would of sent an email to say I've been unsuccessful but the suspense is killing me 😂 I think they're aiming to get back to everyone within 2 weeks. I'm hoping for a good outcome to, good luck! What area have you applied for if you don't mind me asking?

It means they’ve reviewed yours. They all move to hold and once they’ve all been reviewed they will let people know the next stage, so it’s just a general message! They let you know once everyone has been reviewed so it depends on the number of applicants, but you should hear about 2-3 weeks after closing.

Thank you! I ended up applying twice by accident as I have 2 similar email addresses I use for professional and normal use which are autofilled on my laptop. I thought my original application didn't go through as nothing was on my log in but turned out I made a new application with my other email address. I was going to withdraw it as I know you can only apply once but my friend advised me not to as I would have "double the chance". Is this likely to affect anything? One was for London and the other Midlands as I changed my mind in where I wanted to train because I currently live in the midlands

You have to put your NI number on the application, so I think it’s likely to flag as a double application and cancel them? Although, as you’ve applied for 2 different areas I am not sure haha! Maybe contact them? Do you know which one you want to continue the application for now? If so I would withdraw the second one to be safe! (Although we would all like double the chance haha!)
