    Hi and welcome from me too

    sorry for the late reply just been really busy of late. Just having a nightmare applying for legal training contracts. I'm 23 and shortly will be finishing my legal masters and my Legal Practice Course and I know there's a lot of rejection I'm going to have to face but I feel like I'm just not even able to get my foot in the door. I'm autistic, dyslexic and hyperlexic and when I'm doing some of the tests we have to do online pre-assessment centre they are eerily similar to ones I had to do when I was being diagnosed so when I get sent the rejection after the tests it makes me feel I'm always going to be rejected because they don't accommodate how my brain works and do little to prove my worth in practice. I'm not sure why I'm bothering you all with it as there's little to be done but I think I just needed to get it out there. I'm of the first generation of my family to go to university so I think talking to them about it lacks the intimate understanding of the world I'm trying to navigate my way through. Nevertheless, I appreciate the welcome and hearing me out.

    Hello @Mcelligott

    Thanks for your reply, it's good to see you back on the community.

    Congratulations on your soon to be finished study, you must be extremely talented to succeed in that subject so wel done :) 

    When carrying out the tests, have you considered asking for a reasonable adjustment to make them more manageable for you? Or have you spoken about your concerns with those running the test? I understand why this is troubling you, but I'm sure there'll be a way around things and to overcome the barriers faced.
