They don't really look at preferences. The main thing with preferences is certain schemes take longer to release results and could delay you hearing about some of your others.
Ohh okay that’s alright then

Yes, they were pretty straight forward but you cant really prepare for them. Just go with your gut instinct and don't second guess yourself.

Pretty much the same as last year. Just give it your best shot.

I've applied for Diplomatic & Development, Project Delivery, Finance, Generalist in that order.

Feedback from my first test shows strong alignment to Fast Stream.

Currently a direct appointment at DIT after being unsuccessful last year. Happy to help in any way I can (however unable to advise on tests etc).

Sounds like you've done great! I am aiming for HoP but I have applied for 4, my tests still need to unlock though. This is my first time applying

The Case Studies were interesting, genuinely not sure how I feel they went

Did you put down about needing specialist adjustments? it can delay unlocking as the will need to review.

Nope I didn't, I've had a confirmation email that my application was submitted but nothing about the tests being unlocked yet

I’m in the same boat as you. Last year it took almost 8 hours for my tests to unlock so I’m hoping mine will in a couple hours.

You actually increase your chances of success by applying for more streams.

If you are unsuccessful on one stream, you could still progress on another.

I've applied to (in order): Project Delivery, Property, Commercial and Generalist. The online test is locked for me because I just applied but I'm hoping for the best since this is my first time applying. Hopefully, I can get into SDIP if I don't make it through the Fast Stream application stages.
