    Rejected from A&O 2023 TC today :/

    The email I received stated: Your application and responses to the SJT suggest that you may not be suited for a role as a trainee at Allen & Overy at this time.

    Does this mean they also read my application? Is it worth even finding out an SJT score or something?

    Thanks!

    Yes, I would take that as it could either be your application or your SJT, or both.

    Really odd as I was rejected today because I apparently didn't pass the SJT although my tracker originally said I did? Very odd

    The tracker now says I am rejected - really confused why for 3 days it would say well done and now boom goobye. Should I email grad rec or?

    It could just be human or computer error. There’s no harm in contacting them to ask. Is it clear you have been unsuccessful on the basis of the SJT? Could you have been rejected if you weren’t eligible for the programme you applied to?

    I got the same email as the person above: Your application and responses to the SJT suggest that you may not be suited for a role as a trainee at Allen & Overy at this time. It took 3 days for it to come through though - and no, I'm 100% eligible as I spoke to grad rec as I am a disabled applicant and they were supporting me through my application.

    That seems unfair... Sorry to hear that. May I ask how long after you did the SJT they came back? I haven't got an email saying whether I passed or not.. :/

    Took them 3 days which is really odd. Has kinda put me off the firm if they are going to string people along and grad rec are now conveniently taking a while to reply...

    How long do SJT results take? Is it an email or just a portal update?

    Does the A&O Summer scheme give you chance for TC in 2023 or is it a later date?

    Hi Jessica, I just wanted to check whether this applied to people who failed the test in the past? Does it mean if someone failed it last year they too will not receive a link?

    Do you get email confirmation that you have completed the test?

    Could anyone copy and paste what the email that says you passed the SJT looks like, does it give an indication of score? Or does it literally just say you've passed? thank you :)

    Hey! They don't give you a score, just an automatic email saying you've passed: "We are pleased to inform you that your responses suggest that you possess the qualities we look for at Allen & Overy. Therefore, you will be progressing to the next stage of the recruitment process, where your application will be reviewed." It then just lists four of the agilities. Hope that helps!
