    Yesterday I got invited to an assessment day in October! However, after immediately telling them that I'd failed my group bourdon with Southern 2 days prior I have since received an email saying that I am unsuccessful.

    Is this normal? Is it simply because of my assessment with southern?

    You have to wait 6 months to do the assesments again if you failed.

    As has been said, unfortunately you cannot take another assessment due to having to wait 6-months between failed attempts. This is generic across the board I’m afraid.

    Hi,

    I finally got an assessment invite after applying in November. Actually forgot about that I had applied as this is the first I am hearing from them. Anyway, I have a 2 month commitment starting 2 days before my assessment date, would asking to postpone hinder my chances of getting another date???

    You are unlikely to get another assessment date.

    Hi,

    It’s best to start a new thread if your question is specific to you. Since it’s quite an easy one, I’ll answer it here.

    The simple answer is, it’s unlikely. However, recruitment are the best people to ask. It depends on a few factors I’d imagine, including how much space they have and how many assessments. When I initially said my medical date could pose problems, they said I might not get another one (and that’s at the conditional offer stage), so I’d imagine assessments would be similar, especially given the relatively early stage of the process you’re at.

    The same for most TOCs and FOCs unfortunately. It’s a very competitive process. (I went for my medical on the original date by the way.....through hell or high water I wasn’t gonna blow this one haha).
