    For GS in the 'Personal Statement' section of the application form, what does it mean by 'Please state your spring dates in the cover letter box below'? Is it a range of dates that you are free? I would have thought that the dates would be fixed? Can someone unconfused me please, thanks!

    Interviews have been given and rejections have started being distributed.

    Questions are competency/motivation for interview.

    You should hear back sometime in january. Good luck!
    sorry I didn't get you, do you mean all interviews have been given? so if someone hasn't heard about interview by now it's not looking hopeful? ahhh poo!

    Yep thats the one. It was as you'd expect, 30 minutes of just competency questions. But I finished a bit early so they asked me about 'global issues' at the moment. Oh and it was with an Associate instead of HR.
    Hey,
    May I ask when you received the invitation for the interview?

    I'll give you some more time to think about it before I PM you the answer

    Some more if you can't get that one.

    You have 5 pots of coins. One of the pots contains only fake coins. The normal coins weigh 10 grams. The fake coins weigh 9 grams. You are given a weighing scales (one you would use to weigh yourself, not a balancing scales) and allowed to make only one measurement. How do you determine which pot contains the fake coins?
    This was asked by DB


    You are blindfolded and sit in front of a table. On the table are many coins, 10 of which have heads facing up. How do you split the group of coins into two groups such that the same number of coins are heads-up in each group? You don’t know how many coins there are and you can’t tell which side is facing up in any way.
    This was asked by JP and GS
    Can you please explain the first one? Got my ideas but dont know if they are "allowed".

    take 1 coin from pot 1, 2 coins from pot 2, 3 coins from pot 3 etc and weigh all of them at once. if pot 1 is the fakes, the weight will end in 9. if pot 2 is the fakes, the weight will end in 8 etc.

    So I got an email from HR on the 18th (I had to confirm whether I was interested in risk or investment banking) and then on the 19th I received an email from my interviewer confirming the interview time. And then had my interview on Tuesday

      do you need something unique / impressive (stand out) on your cv? Or do you just need to be a well rounded applicant e.g. Finance related w/e, target (yeh I know it's not necessary but helps) ,good outside of school activities, achievements, etc.....

      Dont really understand how they pick out which cv's which will progress to interviews?
      If you meet the requirements is always a good start.

      Do well in interviews, show your interest and you should be in with a chance.

      Although doing somethig unique/ECs/achievements/university brand certainly helps. What's your profile?
