      Thank you for your help

      Hornsey Depo is Great Northern and Thameslink trains.. Did you swat up on all three areas?
      I've researched
      Hornsey Depo
      Great Northern
      And Thameslink

        Hornsey is great northern.
        Cricklewood is thameslink

        I mainly revised great northern and GTR as a whole

      Thank you for your insight.
      I tried to write my 7 questions down when I got home.
      Did you try and contract Go Ahead House HR or did you just wait for your next stage?
      I feel like I need to contract them at the end of this week as that will be 10 days since my assessment

        I tried contacting them for updates every so often.

        But 10 days isn't really that long. Give it about a month and then worry lol

      Wow that's such a long gap.. is that normal?
      'How did that make you feel?
      Self reflecting answer.
      Interesting.. Showing you stayed calm and in control. Also that it did not effect you etc
      Basically all the traits of a train driver. ?

        I hope it's not normal. It's because I started apply for a shunter position and then train driver.

        Kind of. I gave answers like how it surprised me that I remained calm in that situation.
        How you felt proud and that you learnt something etc

      Hi mate,

      Congrats on getting through to the training course..

      I've passed the assessment and am now waiting for an MMI interview date for the same depo as you. Hornsey

      If you don't mind could you tell me more about the MMI Interview and the DMI interview?

      What would be your advice?

      I'm not after having my hand held , I was just after your thoughts etc

      Cheers Richard

        Thank you.

        I'm not sure in what order you have done things.
        On my first day of assessment centre, one of the last things i had to do was write down about 7 examples of when I have done something e.g. shown competence. These were going to be the examples I had to expand on for my MMI.

        For me however there was a good 4-5 month gap between my two assessment centre days. Luckily they let me read my notes I had written on the first day before talking about them, and was allowed to talk about something else if I had thought of anything better.

        Then there was a good 6 month gap l, maybe more, between MMI and DMI. The DMI was a lot more relaxed in nature, but more pressure. Essentially asking the same questions as the MMI in terms of examples.

        For the MMI be prepared for a lot of 'How did that make you feel?' Questions at the end of your examples. It's quite off putting but be sure to have a self reflecting answer to it, other then, I felt alright
