RBS mid-associate applications

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if it matters how quickly you get your application form for RBS Associates in? Do they stop looking at the forms when they reach a certain number?

 

Also, the photos required on the actual application form are different from those given when you follow the link to view photo requirements before you go into the application form. Does anyone know which is correct?

Thank you Lema. Yes, the link you sent is the photos that I looked at originally and those are the ones we have taken, but when I went to fill the application form in they were different! It specified bare feet rather than soft shoes, and the last picture was not on pointe, just a side view, standing straight. 

 

Does everyone get an audition regardless of the photos? I had assumed that they weeded people out from the photos first.

Everyone gets an audition. The RBS are very helpful I have found. If you email a query they usually get back quickly.

I have emailed (yesterday) and they haven't got back to me yet :(  But if everyone gets an audition, maybe it doesn't matter too much anyway  :) (But what is the point of the photos then, I wonder?  :mellow: )

Yes everyone gets an audition and just double check that when you are looking at the photo requirements that you are definately looking at the same age groups requirements each time, easy mistake to make in the midst of filling in forms ???? good luck xx

My dd teacher told us they are just for a reference after the audition when the Panel are considering candidates, easier to remember if you have their photo in front of you, but this is just what teacher said and I don't know whether true or not but it makes sense to me x

Thanks, Lema and Sarahw. The 1st photo set were headed 13-18 yrs, and the 2nd 11-13 yrs, and as DD will be 13, it could be either  :huh:

The date they go by is age on 31st August of the year you are auditioning - i.e. to fit in with academic school year ages.  As Associates don't go up to 18 - the first set are probably summer school appications

That was my suspicion, Pas de Quatre. Their website link must be wrong then. We will have to do our photos again  :(

I had this problem, the photo requirements are in flat shoes from 11-12 on 13th August 2015 and on pointe from 13 as of 31st August 2015 but when you do the application if you have ticked mid associates 11-13 it shows you the flat shoe pictures. My daughter is applying for the last year of mid-associates. I did a dummy test but changed her age to 14 and got the pointe shoe pictures so I think it is the way the form has been set up.

I emailed them as I thought I would have to get them re-done but she suggested I send what I had, she pointed out that the audition itself is when they decide and the photos are an aide-memoire for the discussion. (as suggested by one a teacher above) They are very helpful if you e-mail them and I think you will get an audition if you apply before the closing date, which varies depending on which centre you audition at. In the end if they like you I don't think you will be penalised for having the wrong photos.
