Do you have any interview tips?
The Civil Service Fast Stream Assessment Centre is really difficult - but you can prepare for it, and it will be worth it. Do loads of reading prior to the FSAC, ensure that you have a good grasp of key political and business issues (which hopefully you will have already from pre-existing interests or your education). But remember, that the FSAC whilst long, and tiresome, contains some generic parts.
Generic parts are: one on one interview (although come armed with examples which demonstrate the competencies) - but think about how you would perform well at any interview and group exercise (I used the internet to figure out optimal behaviour(s) and think about how to organise the discussion before hand.).
As for the other parts, I ensured that I was 'commercially' savvy and on the ball with any key considerations for broader central government issues/ initiatives.
