have 2 degree apprenticeship offers but dont feel like i deserve them?

so i know this is gonna sound kinda weird but basically i received 2 DTS offers from 2 big companies. For the 1st one, on the day of the assessment centre there was only 1 other girl. Idk if this means they filtered out a lotta ppl or there just wasnt that many ppl who applied. For the other company there was a lot of ppl at the assessment centre and they said they would get back to use by the end of the week. 3 weeks later no response so i emailed them about this and literally 5 mins later i got the offer. I feel like they just gave me the offer just because i kinda helped remind them? Idk i dont wanna sound ungrateful but i feel weird.
Maybe there was more than one assessment centre for the first one? For my software engineering degree apprenticeship I was the only one there on the day for interview, but they were interviewing over a number of days. Alternatively was the apprenticeship based in a more remote/difficult to access location? I think that will probably makes them less popular. I applied for quite a lot and some seemed far better organised than others, the second one sounds badly organised (I had something similar with Barclays and would not have accepted it if I got offered) so I probably wouldn't choose that one. What are the companies? Have you checked them out on rate my apprenticeship?

bit confused by what u mean by seen them? I found GSK thru ratemyapprenticeship but for Thales i found them thru the gov website
People leave reviews on ratemyapprenticeship which can give you an idea about whether they have found them to be a good apprenticeship and what they have learnt etc. I didn't apply for GSK or Thales but I'm sure I remember reading someone saying they had an offer for GSK - have you done a search on software engineering apprenticeships or GSK apprenticeships on here? Might be worth a try. Don't feel like you don't deserve your opportunity though! GSK is a huge, well known company, you should be proud!
