    Clements,
    what office are you applying to for Deloitte? Have they even indicated to you as of what week beginning your interview may be in?
    Southampton for Audit.

    And nope, only got emailed by them today. In all honesty, I thought I'd failed the tests :rolleyes:

    Applying to Londond so we are definitely not fighting for the same job
    Yeah thats what i thought ahahh. It'd certainly be a bit odd for you to apply to portsmouth given the circumstances :rolleyes:

    They emailed you on a sunday?

    Was it the "you have completed the online tests" or was it saying that you have been successful. It seems strange they email you on a sunday. What does your status say when you log in?

    Yeah fair enough.

    It was the completing tests one. And I was confused as to whether that meant I passed. And they replied saying they'd contact me shortly detailing interview dates. This was all at around 3pm I think

    Cool. I was confused for agesss too. The easiest way to check is your status. If it still says "Online tests completed" then you don't know if you've passed or not yet, but if it says "Invite to 1st Scholar Interview" then you've passed. Good luck

    Fair enough - although why would they say they'd contact me detailing interviews? Oh well.

    And surely if they like your application and you pass both tests, you'd be invited to interview? Cos if not, whats the point in doing the tests and stuff

    Yeah I suppose that would make sense. But yeah, is it at least more likely Ill get an interview than not if I've passed everything?

    Yes. I am assuming that you would, without a doubt, get an interview if you have passed the tests, unless your office is full. Saying that, the women told me that the week I am getting my interview, there is also someone else, and there may be only one place in the office (and two interviews/people), and asked would I be willing to go to another office if I was successful (because its first come, first served and the other person applied before me) and i said yes.

    Same, kinda regretting it now (with all the people getting offers!) and my interview not until week beginning 17th Nov.
    And on here there is so much talk about the interviews/assessment days, it makes me so scared and ten times more nervous. I don't really have my hopes up tbh. I'll try my best, if not i'm happy to go to uni.

    I always seem to do really well at interview thankfully, and luckily, i'll have my cambridge interview beforehand which should be decent to prepare :p:
    When did you apply?

    Also what unis are you applying for, and grades did you get if you dont mind me asking?

    I applied 3 or 4 weeks ago. I'm from Scotland, so the education system is different. I sat my Highers last year (Maths, English, German, Biology and Business) and I got AAAAB, which is 346 or 348 (i cant remember) UCAS points.
    I also applied to a scottish office. University wise, I want to stay in Scotland because we get our university education free. I'm applying to St Andrews, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Durham (just because of its reputation, I doubt i'll go, i'd just like to get an offer. haha)

    you?

    Fair enough. I'm applying for Cambridge, Warwick, Manchester (got an offer), Exeter and Bristol.
    I've done Maths AS (A), Economics (B), Physics (A) and my further maths I haven't done yet. My maths should turn out as an A overall, since I only have one exam left and on 99% atm, I'd have to mess up on the exam so badly to get less than an A hahah.
