    Cheers for the reply, I know someone at blackrock who is going to refer me so ill see what happens with that. Do you know if all the insight weeks/summer internships ask for specific grades like this one? Reading through the threads here people are saying it's only some as most just ask for predicted 2:1.
    I don't actually think you need a first year grade on your CV. People all over the forum have been saying that they just have '2.i predicted' written on theirs and they've gotten offers.
    I would just avoid putting it down, if I were you.

    If you've done a first year at university and don't put a grade for it on your CV, people are going to ask questions. By all means omit it if you want, but don't expect not to be scrutinised for it.

    Is this just you presuming, or have you has interviews with a CV without first year grades?
    Sure some people will ask but I do wonder how common it actually is.

    A lot of my friends (with 2.iis in first year) just don't put it on their CV. Most have gone unquestioned, but that may be because our first year is technically uncertified (just fail, pass, or distinction). That said, not sure how many interviewers would know that?

    I would just put 2.i predicted. If your CV is full and grades don't take up much space people might not even notice

    Okay guys, I've not really looked at this thread and I've seen the activity has picked up quite a bit, so would someone be very kind and fill me in on which places are now open to apply to? I wasn't all that prepared for them to open so early, just means that this next month will be a very busy one for me!

    Should also be going to the bright network event too, so many see some of you there?

    BlackRock, RBS, CS and GS so far. UBS apparently as well although most of us can't seem to access the application.

    Don't suppose you could point me to a link for BlackRock? I've spent the last 15 minutes trying to find it and have failed miserably

    Edit: Found it now.

    Guys, how would my chances be if i apply in first year from southampton economcs and finance for the spring week. I know this isn't a target/ semi but if i join the finance society, with previous work experience at HSBC and JP Morgan Bournemouth, how likely would i be to even get an interview at 3rd tier front offices if i also applied fairly early?

    edit: oh with ABB at a level.

    edit 2: if i get a big 4 spring week would i have a greater chance at landing a summer internship at an ibd?

    Is anyone going to the BrightNetwork festival this year? Tuesday 16th September. Not sure whether or not it's worth flying over from NI for, although I do love an excuse for a trip to London..
    I'll be but not the morning session; my friend, who's also interested in IB, said that it seems pretty similar anyway?!

    No, I think the morning is more exclusive and more structured so much better networking possibilities. I'm not going anyway
