LHR Virtual Assessment Outcome

Hi everyone, 😄 

I had my Virtual Assessment Day on 17 January 2022 12:30pm. It is now 2,5 weeks later and I haven't heard anything back. I check my online profile on the BA Careers website and it says my application is still active.  

Is this normal? Will they tell you if you have been successful or not? How long after your assessment, did you hear feedback?

The wait is killing me lol

Thanks in advance friends.😁

Hey, it varies massively. Nothing will change on the portal I don't think. If you're successful your portal will update after youve been sent a start date but that is weeks after your congratulations email. I'd email recruitment and ask, you may have just slipped under the radar. Either way they will send you an outcome, you wont be left in the dark!

Hey FPhill, thanks so much for the response! I did email recruitment a week ago so hopefully they'll respond soon! Cheers 😊

I had mine 2 days after yours, still nothing.. Checking my email all the time :(

I emailed them last week regarding this question and they didn't get back to me either.

Maybe we are in some kind of a queue, dunno.

My start date is June 22  :) I’ve signed the docs and all that x

Just wondering, do we now have to wait for them to contact us regarding all the checks? Or do we book them somewhere ourselves?
