    hi guys I was wondering if it's too late to apply for spring week now? I know the applications are still open but given that most of them are on a rolling basis there is a big chance most of the places are filled anyways?
    Still worth applying.

    I'd say skip: DB, CS, BAML (possibly) - Others may add to this list, as a lot of spaces have been filled at these institutions and the statistical likelihood of you recieving an offer is just heavily stacked against you, if you were to apply at this time.

    Some deadlines have already passed such as JPM.

    What's your profile?

    Tel phone interview > AC > Final round with store manager.

    They recruit non-target mostly and are rolling-basis but you're a semi-target so have better chance than if you went to Oxbridge/LSE. If you only going for the money however, you will quit soon.

    I see. Thanks for the insight!
    I'm studying PPE at Oxford and have close to no financial experience. I did do a short internship at a law firm doing some research during high school when I was in New Zealand. I'm a Kiwi-Chinese so I'm bilingual and I got 2380 in my SATs and a 7 in IB Mathematics HL (I guess its the equivalent of Additional Maths in A-levels) and 41/45 in IB. Other than that I really don't have anything special. Would I have a shot at Spring Week or even Summer Internships or should I look at cold calling boutiques for some experience and try for the bigger banks in my second year?

    Do you reckon it'll be technical?
    Had an interview at xmas and can confirm that it was really technical. Had to, in detail, explain how to do a Big Mac even though it wasnt McDonalds I was applying for. The interviewer apperently wanted me to know about the competition better than I expected.. And failed the numerical for Mc too. ****ing Burger Q, was like 20 options per question and the time restrictions was just insane. Welp, life sucks.

    My answers to the motavation q on apps were more suited to MO kitchen staff -_-'. Will re-apply next year and take a year in industry so graduating in 2018. BAML should be flexible, Sams offer better exit opps so I would focus on converting that. All the best, let us know how it goes.

    Got an invitation for a phone interview from JPM. I was so surprised since I am from Germany. Hope I can perform convincingly because I am not a native speaker.
    May I know if you are applying for the IBD and Risk Spring programme?

    Going to do the Barclays numerical after the holiday season ends and I have some peace and quiet in my house lol, how did you find the situational judgement test? is it like the RBS one?
    It's different to RBS - the context is video based and the options are random (I.e. not defined in appropriateness) - you choose the best and worst from the options available

    I'm having this problem too, but a friend of mine received a e-mail last week. Do you think Barclays will send an email after christmas break?

    What sort of score do the banks look for on an SHL test? I'm having difficulty with some of them.. Is there a technique to doing them within the 90 seconds you have to answer a question?
