    I think I had five questions when John Snowden called me. All pretty straight forward to be honest. There's nothing done to trip you up. It certainly wasn't a grilling.

    Mine's been sent in a while now. Had the letter to say it's been sent on but no call. Doesn't really matter as I have no immediate need for it, but be nice to get things wrapped up.

    I was told I'd be sent a confirmation letter from BASC that they'd received my portfolio, but it never turned up so I chased this to be told by a lady she'd look into it, and a new letter would be sent if they had it. It didn't turn up, I chased again to be told they had it after all, but hadn't bothered to send a letter as they said they would.

    Funnily enough I've just started another thread after taking a call from a BASC IV basically telling me there was a delay initially because he'd been in hospital (Why was his workload not passed onto a colleague?) and secondly because he'd lost it and it was buried under a pile of papers along with someone else's.

    I'd be formally disciplined by the bank I work for if I showed the same appalling level of customer service towards our clients. It's my opinion that the staff at BASC dealing with level 2 qualifications are both incompetent and under resourced.

    A friendly chat that lasts around 25 minutes, expect to be asked questions about what is written in your portfolio.

    I get the impression that the call is to establish that the portfolio is all your own work and that you have the underlying knowledge to support the answers that you have given.

    Good luck.

    I have 'witnessed' a few candidates and there hasn't been any follow up phone calls and as far as I can see there shouldn't be any reason for any calls unless the AWs integrity is being questioned.
    After all the AW qualification is only, or should only, be granted to persons of experience and integrity in the first place.
    It seems, from some of the posts I've read recently, that a follow up 'phone call is the norm these days.

    It should be a friendly chat to go over the evidence you have presented, as all the points should have been covered if your AW has done his job correctly. The verifier has to make sure that all the compulsory questions have been answered correctly, and it's in no one's interest to try to "trip" anyone up. Best of luck
