    Definitely non-rolling. I applied on the deadline for the winter VS last year!

    As mentioned by others, penultimate year students had until September to decide whether to accept but I believe the rest of us only had a month.

    Hi everyone, am I right in thinking that Linklaters doesn't ask for GCSE results, merely the qualification you took? Just wanting to double check in case I have missed something here!

    Is the WGT timed? Last cycle it was not timed...

    I suspect it is timed just might not have a time limit

    Hey guys,

    I have just completed the application questionnaire for Links and I have received an email stating that I have 5 days to complete the WG after submitting my application. Does 'application' simply refer to the application questionnaire? I was under the impression that I would have 5 days to complete the WG after I had finished the eligibility questionnaire and review?

    sorry do they ask you to state every subject and grade that you received for GCSEs? Mine only allows me to select what qualification I took and doesn't allow me to enter any other information for 14-16 exams, only for 16-18 exams am I able to add specific subjects and grades

    I wasn't able to enter my GCSE results, only my A Levels.

    This sounds different to last year but as with any deadlines, I would treat it as 5 days from receiving the email to be on the safe side.

    Sorry i should have been more clear to avoid the confusion. I'm from the States so under "other", I had the opportunity to list my SAT and AP scores.

    Hi Jessica do you know what sort of time range we should be aiming to complete the WG test in?

    I wouldn’t worry about it - it may be the case that timing/speed isn’t heavily weighted when the percentile scoring is calculated

    Certainly last year, I did the WG for Links fairly slowly, but was invited to an AC so I don’t think time is weighted particularly heavily by them for the WG, compared to some other firms.

    Also, 15th September was the deadline for people on the third and final Linklaters vacation scheme to decide if they want to take up a training contract offer or not, so I’d imagine direct TC offers will go out fairly soon. Linklaters are still working out their intake cohorts for training contract holders at the moment anyway.

    Thought so too. Do you think the personality test is timed?

    I did the Capps test over two days, so I highly doubt it’s timed! I also took forever for the WG, so unless something has changed from last cycle, then it doesn’t matter how long it takes you

    I took hours to do both the CAPP and the WG last cycle too as I kept taking breaks. I was a little paranoid that they would wonder why I am so slow, but I was still invited to AC.
