    I could only attach my CV to my BAML application, which I did yesterday. However I've just seen now that they expect a CL as well. I've logged in to the site, but I don't know how to attach it to my application, or how to withdraw it to start again. Any advice?

    I think there really is a possibility that they DON'T HAVE tests.
    I talked to a recruiter from GS and they don't believe in tests because so many ppl cheat. However, they have one of the toughest interviews. Brainteasers

    put your CV and CL in a single word file. Had the same question, asked a recruiter and this is what she told me to do.

    For those who had the MS phone interview, did they ask any technical questions?

    Is anybody applying for the Women's Immersion at Nomura?

    About a month ago. Was quite surprised to get an interview, thought I screwed up the numerical.

    I got offered an interview fro cs fast track next week, however as i am in the middle of exams I rang them and left a voicemail explaining it would suit much better to do them in january. I now have an interview for jan, however it no longer says fast track interview on it. Have I justed wasted an advantage by having a fast track interview or will interviewers take the same standared of applicants no matter what type of interview?

    Thanks

    I don't think you can change/edit the application once it's submitted. You can only update contact details e.g. email, address, phone number etc.
