    Thanks, but I didn't meet the criteria either. I bet they're looking for people with the fastest internet connections, but mine's only at 2MB .

    Wasn't eligible either, not sure what the entry requirements were as there were so few questions.

    Like the way they take your personal details then tell you that you are ineligible.

    Well I managed to get to the end of the survey, not sure if I have got a place or not though they will email me apparently...

    Hint for those not getting through: The back button works..use it to your advantage..(oh and I think they have their quota of MALE applicants..)

    I applied but didn't meet the criteria, but then I put my girlfriend's details in and it worked straight away, they're obviously looking for more women
