    If you believe your profile is 2nd to none, go for CS. If it will be average, in comparison to the SW applicant population I wouldn't bother.

    I'd still go for HSBC.

    Where did you get those figures? I'm sure they have considerably more spots open.

    JPM rejection. I guess I should have written a CL on top of the competency questions.
    Sorry to hear about the rejection. May I ask which division you applied for?

    BNPP definitely as apparently they review apps after the deadline, I'm pretty sure HSBC will be soon to give out interviews as people have had numerical tests already and that's the next stage. Not too sure about the others

    BNPP close on 31st December too so I may as well get that out of the way. Haven't entertained HSBC yet, will also have a look. Thanks.

    Yeah, the application isn't too bad either, plus apparently according to last year there were no interviews and was just straight offers, so I'd suggest you ensure everything you attach is top notch.

    I don't know where this idea has come from that they don't interview. Me and everyone I knew on the programme had the standard telephone interview for 30 minutes.
