Hi first of all congratulations on getting that far as these apprenticeships are very competitive no matter the level.

I am actually an applicant and have applied to this position recently so made this in the hopes of meeting people who are also in a similar position.

All the best of luck with your interview and let me know how it goes, I'm sure you'll do well.

They emailed me now telling me the technical issue has been sorted and I can do my video interview. Been preparing hard for the behavioral questions :headbang:
I have also applied but I'm just stuck in an under review status and not sure if I have been soft declined or they are just taking a while. Is anyone else experiencing or experienced this?

I'm also under review status for 2 - 3 weeks I think, so you definitely aren't alone. Perhaps they are just taking their time.

That's relieving to hear at least. Have you got any plans to email them or are you planning on letting them get to you?

I was thinking of waiting this week at least and then see what happens as some companies do take their time. What about you? When did you apply?

Hi, I am that classmate. Can confirm that seeing the pain he's had with Monogame has been equally heart breaking to watch. I've had a relatively smooth time with mine, the benefits of a having a GUI are insane and have made it so much easier

Oh aha, all the best of luck, I didn't quite understand your project though, what is its job?

I'm making a Scientific + Graphing Calculator that also does Differentiation and Integration. I've just finished the scientific part but need to do the write up which I hate.

What language and exam board are you with?
