Well done to people who have passed!
How ever I must say I am suprised I'm being put on hold for a further 4 months when you're getting a course place in July considering I passed my stage 3 over a year ago...

I haven't heard yet, but 2 guys from the same day as me have heard. I can only assume I haven't got in, but I'm still hoping & praying that I'm wrong. What r the chances?

Still nothing. It's like a cloud hanging over me! I really wish they'd just put me out of my misery! I thought I'd done quite well, but now I'm over analysing everything that happened that day, wondering what mistakes I made. I was fine until 2 of the guys I was with on the day got their news yesterday, & also SamOn, who done his stage 3 two days after me! Feeling like crap. Somebody cheer me up please?

think that every finish line is the beginning of a new race. You are running yours, and it's a long distance one. Keep pushing to the end, don't give up. You are a gta turbo indeed!

Good luck and remember: no news, good news!

Hugs!

I got a hold of HR today, as always they are very helpfull once you get hold of them. What they said was that I am being pushed to January due to what's called (IIRC) an ELA (my guess, English Language Assesment). This has to be done for everyone who is not from an English speaking country, how ever they can only do a certain number of these for each course and when the amount of places were reduced they didn't have a chance to fit mine in as well. Thismeant I was pushed to January while some people from the UK was put on the July course (since they did not need an ELA).

A guy that started a year ago or so had that problem. Probably they want to avoid having 2 people that speak the same native language in the same course??

Thumbs down

No joy. I didn't get in. Completely gutted. Waiting for feedback, but apparently it can take up to 8 weeks!!

Such a long process to fall at the final hurdle.

GTA - make sure you take notes when you get feedback - if it's anything like mine it'll be invaluable for when you reapply. Save all your notes and research from Stages 1-3, and fish them out again when the time comes to try again.

I know exactly how you feel...
