Any tips for Pinsent Masons AC? At this point, I don't want to go because I have no faith in myself. I have already failed one AC.
I haven't applied to Pinsent Masons so I can't give any firm-specific advice but I just wanted to say that you should be extremely proud of yourself for reaching the AC stage for two firms! With the process being so competitive, that is a massive achievement.

For my AC, I contacted some trainees via LinkedIn and one was kind enough to call and talk me through the process and their experience. This was really useful to me so perhaps you could do the same if you're struggling to find much online.

I think it is important to rebuild your confidence in yourself before you go and change the way that you look at your previous AC experience. I know it is so much easier said than done, but you will naturally give a better performance if you can do this.

Wishing you all the best and crossing my fingers for you!

Having a breakdown, my amberjack assessment isn't showing me the data for one of the questions. I refreshed my page and emailed early careers. this is not the vibe I wanted for the start of the week
