    What tests are involved at the assessment day?
    Is DFFT mentioned?

    They will have offered you the available place based on their own recruitment timescales. If you can't make it or don't want it then they will reallocate the place to someone else. Yes it's not ideal but most of us who have walked this path have had to travel for the tests.

    Still not had an email. Driving me crazy waiting.

    I have applied for Glasgow and as per previous post the assessment seems to be Leeds

    Can anyone co form where the majority of the training takes place?

    Ie if it's all somewhere like Leeds how long would this be for?

    Same with me, I'd applied for Newcastle, was surprised at being offered 17th/18th December at Leeds though as I'd assumed it would of been at Doncaster on the 19th as I'm sure that was the date specified when I applied. After reading the thread this morning I'm classing myself as being very lucky to have gotten this far. I appreciate all the information that people have given in here, it's been really helpful and I just want to wish everyone good luck. If anyone is doing their assessment in Leeds on the 18th....I'll see you there.

    I’m sure the ‘19’ part was to indicate 2019 not Dec 19th.

    Me. Also hull. I could of put York looking at google maps but I didn’t because it takes me longer than 60mins to get there. I should of looked at google maps first rather than going off real time and it could of been another option.
    Not heard anything

    Sheffield for me mate, booked in for the assessment on the 17th but I’m waiting on an email about if I need to attend as passed all the paper tests for EMR or as it was EMT about 11 months ago.

    Good luck for those attending next week!!

    It just says this mate so I’m guessing not

    At this first stage you will take the following tests:

    - Group Bourdon
    - Trainability for Rules and Procedures Parts 1 and 2
    - Test of Everyday Attention (Tea-occ)

    Do not want to give anyone false hope but the next stage sounds as if it is ongoing until February 2020, written in full, to avoid confusion. Please see attached screen shot of the job advert.

    I wander if there were rejection emails yet. Not to be horrible I would just like to know if I did not get it not to build hopes up. So confusing.

    I applied for Liverpool and have had an assessment invite, just waiting for a response as to whether my current results can be used rather than having to take them again.
