    I applied in mid-December and found out on 6 January that I'd made it through to the online game assessment stage (which I have yet to complete)

    Can't help I'm afraid but I'm assuming you've already done the TW online game assessment then? If so, do you have any tips on that? How different is it from the practice game and how long did it take for Taylor Wessing to get back to you and invite you to the AC?

    I didn’t actually complete the practice game so I can’t help you in that respect! My advice would be just to take it slowly and really understand each level as some of them take a while to get used to. I think I completed the GBA around the 15th of December and received an invite this morning!

    Submitted on the 3rd Jan but haven’t heard anything since. Checked the portal and nothing on there either.

    Should I be worried I still haven’t heard anything from Freshfields? I apply a few days before the deadline

    Both firms have given out AC Invitations to candidates. For jones day, I know people with summer interviews in January and March. For CMS, they’ve been doing interviews since December.

    Hope that helps and I hope you heard good news soon!

    Thanks for this. Do you reckon they are still giving out invitations?

    The grad rec team read every single application and they do not have a computer filtering system to assist so really do not worry about timescales for them. it will entirely depend on the volume of apps they have because their assessment of quality will no doubt depend on the overall standard of the apps for this year and it will depend on when yours gets read as well no doubt. Please don't worry and try to put it out of your mind for now (as I am trying to do this myself!)
