    Anyone heard back from JPM? Last year they had no intermediate rounds (directly AC) for IBD I think.

    Top three A Levels I believe.

    But their choices go way past 420 points (which equals 3 A* grades) so surely it's all A2 and AS grades in proper subjects?

    If it goes above 420, then include dropped AS and extra A2.

    Just got off the phone with DB and thought I'd share some stuff:

    Apparently after the tests, they hand out auto-fail emails if you didn't meet the benchmark for the numerical, so hopefully that's good news for some of us waiting.
    Someone on here said the first rounds will be around October, she said it varies for division and it is usually towards the end of the year but can be around October AKA she doesn't know.

    I'm doing the virtual cover letter for Blackrock today I heard its just two motivational questions - on another forum someone said it was "why are you a good fit for blackrock" and "how will your degree choice help your professional career". Any insight guys?

    ****ing hell. What about the other Big 4? Why do they fill up so quickly?

    PwC will open deals grad roles in mid October and close mid November.
    EY have been extremely slow with giving out invites to tests. But i remember last year they had some grad roles within TS outside London still not filled up by May/June.

    We will be reviewing your qualifications and experience in relation to the role you have applied to and will be in contact with you in the coming weeks."
