    Non target
    Realistically, isn't it difficult to get in with a non-target uni unless you do economics/maths/engineering?

    If you are a final year, for the Credit Suisse, you can only apply to Graduate and Off Cylce right?

    Also, I was looking at off cycle, and the only country i can see application for is Poland... Is this right? And it says 2016 as the year, very confused.

    7 or 8 I believe but talent Q different questions have different difficulties and therefore affects your score slightly differently (I thought I had failed it)

    Finance. I've not seen anyone from KCL before if I'm honest even though it is a good uni. If IB is your goal, I'd say Bristol, Bath, Nottingham or Cass were better on a pure placement basis.

    Nice! tbh I would rather do maths at KCL then finance or accounting at cass because even though its good i will be stuck with saying its part of city uni which is not great IMO

    did you do lots of insight days ect?

    I would have said finance at Cass would have a better chance (purely on uni basis) than maths at KCL for FO anyway

    Yeah I did six insight days at various banks and one consulting company. Attended lots of networking events in my first year. One spring week. One summer internship at a no-name firm. One IBD internship and a placement year.

    I get that but cass is not a uni its a business school which is party of city uni so really you go to city
    PLUS cass was accepting students who had ABB/A*BC in clearing this year

    Kcl is way more internationally known, and they pretty much require A*AA/AAA for maths and economics and its semi target

    are 3 insight days enough? P.s for insight days you submit your application right? is it good to do voluntary work too ect in sports because I heard IB love it

    are you in your 3rd year?
