    I find this whole process bs because you manage to get baml spring week but get rejected from pwc. I go to a non target yet get through the tests and now onto this virtual interview thing... Wish i applied to the investment banks now as i think i am over estimating the competition. Btw, i dunno if you also applied to EY and Deloitte but i got destroyed by theirs. Anyway enjoy baml .

    Pretty much. Motivation/Comptency/Fit asked a little about my experiences on CV.. I think she was trying to figure out whether they were real.. lol, asked how I got summer intern at an IB before uni.

    I heard about the deadline extension by JP Morgan, but their website still says 30th November, can anyone confirm this by sending a link or something saying it has extended.

    me, I only applied to pwc as it was the only place which took freshers from 4 year courses

    I think I remember you from the 2014 a level results thread, where are you studying now?

    What was your AC like? Have mine after the New Year.
    Also would you be able to link the RBC SW, I haven't been able to find it.

    Online app with CV and cover letter and then a 24 hour ish delay until invitation to AC. After 1st AC if you pass there is a second one and then offer.

    I am fresher of 4 year course and have effectively got the RBS SW, got AC at HSBC and ICAP and am waiting to hear from about 8 or 9 others with perhaps 2 rejections. I don't see the harm in applying anyway, especially if you have a legit reason.

    I did rubbish as well.. got like 3/5 on both. Should I take that as a fail?
