    does anyone know the big 4's policy of applying for internships as a final year applying for masters?
    pwc stats that you have to be in your final year and have an accepted masters place but can you still apply if you are applying to masters?
    any ideas on the others as they seem to just state penultimate year

    Quick question -

    If in past years I have been to networking events at banks, should I attend them again this year? Thinking about Citi and Rothschild particularly. Wondering if there is really any value-add in me attending them again.

    Yepp depending on event, always good to expand your network. But you won't be able to if it's a standard company presentation

    just got an email that 2 weeks after my phone interview with UBS, they need another 2 weeks to get back to me.

    anyone else get this? or has been invited to an AC for UBS?
    Had my interview last Thursday and got the same e-mail yesterday. Initially thought it was rather negative but it isn't, they just need more time I guess.

    I reckon that they are just being flooded with applications atm so I would not read anything into it

    You will pay tax and national insurance I believe. National insurance you cannot get back. But tax you will be able to reclaim when you stop working by submitting a P50 to HMRC online. You'll need a P45 from your employer to do this though.

    In short, yes you pay tax but you can get it back later assuming you do not do any other work for that tax year.

    If you are earning £10K and have no other income for the year then you'll pay no tax since it's below the threshold.

    Have to pay NI though

    Apologies if this question has already been asked, but do MS send an automatic rejection email within 48 hours if you've failed to meet the benchmark for their tests?

    Well, I've just done it and erm ... it's different. All the 'why Barclays' and 'tell me about a time' question practice for me didn't pay off. I didn't answer a single competency question other than 'What would your family and friends say about you?'.

    The rest of the questions were 'role play'. They put you in different scenarios. One asked me to sell how Barclays can add value to a client, but I had technical difficulties so I didn't see the 500 word email until 5 seconds before I had to record! Then another scenario, a senior team member had criticised my report, and I had to respond to their criticism ... all role play of course; you don't get to see the 'report'.

    In addition to the videos, you also have some simple numerical questions, some 'which of these statements is true' classics, and I had to critic an email by a colleague in both format and substance, which was pretty straight forward.

    Overall, quite an interesting experience. Not sure it gives you the best opportunity to talk about your skills and experiences ... but certainly unique. If I didn't have some technical difficulties I'd be relatively confident ... just my luck ehhhh.

    Good Luck!
    Hi mate, just a quick question, how long did it take to compete this whole test? Business insight took me 80 minutes. Is this second part doable in 30 minutes?

    Thanks in advance

    Actually mate, you do pay tax as you are pro rota on like lets say 45K a year, however, as mentioned, you can claim the tax back April/May the year after (I am a personal finance legend)

    Nah, they tax you based on your pro-rata salary (£50,000) so you are above the threshold and then you have to reclaim it. At least this is what happened for me, maybe it is different elsewhere.
