    Avanti West Coast Trainee Train Driver Euston and Wolverhampton

    Just got the dreaded "unfortunately" email from OPC. Second one, so that's my lives gone. Beyond heartbroken. Been chasing this for seven years, and it's just gone in a whimper. Good luck to everyone else out there.

    Failed Tea Occ today

    What I did to practice the keep test is I made a bunch of mp3 files in a music making app, using two different drum sounds. Just short ones, labeled as different numbers. Then I would do random number generators and stitch the first five or so numbers I got with that into a playlist, and do the...

    Stage two tends to be a full day affair.

    A career as a signaller

    It's in the pre 69 questions part, it asks the question: Have you had a full, clean and valid UK driving licence for more than 12 months? Just wondering how important that is, if that is an automatic disqualifier before they even look at the questions submitted. 1601499063 It's definitely a...

    A career as a signaller

    I really don't know where I'm going wrong. I've just received application rejection number 9. I got to do the recorded video interview once, but nothing further beyond that. Will the fact I don't have a driving license be being a detriment? It's something I will rectify the very second I got the...

    A career as a signaller

    Is that move on because they will reply whenever they get around to it, or move on because if they haven't contacted me by now I haven't gotten to the next stage?

    A career as a signaller

    Is there any likely timeframe for updates? I completed a video interview (just to camera, not to a person) for a signaller at willesden junction at the start of August and have been sat in "application under consideration" limbo since.

    It's more personal than situational.

    Chiltern trainee vacancies - (Marylebone / Aylesbury / Banbury)

    Got the end of process. Hard not to feel horribly defeated in these circumstances. I don't know how to get to that next level. Angry at myself for screwing up my concentration test by accidentally letting my finger rest on the button and now,just rejection after rejection once again. I know...

    Chiltern trainee vacancies - (Marylebone / Aylesbury / Banbury)

    I emailed them last week and they and told me it will be a month or so before they will be getting to the next stage.

    They want both, but I would say if going slower costs you a line or two, but you have all perfect lines besides that, it will see you better than having more lines but a couple of errors.

    Avanti West Coast Trainee Train Driver Euston and Wolverhampton

    One thing I would add to this. Try different techniques. Print out a bunch of the practice sheets and try every way you can think of to analyze each piece of information and process it. For example, I found that my GB results were consistently the best when I said the number of dots I was...

    NEW 06/03/2020 Thameslink / Great Northern Trainee driver advert for LDN Hornsey & Brighton depots!

    Frustrating as I have only passed half the assessments, so will miss out on this opportunity, but it is what it is. Good luck to everyone in the mix still :-)
