    V useful video here. Outlines what EY are looking for, and also the application process (you have to watch one vid and the other kicks in after the other one) Pretty certain it has that guy from the Apprentice on it too - but don't let that put you off

    I've applied to Corporate Finance in London. I've also completed the numerical, verbal and diagrammatic analysis tests. Fingers crossed I'll be invited for a first interview!

    I know KPMG has one, but I don't think it's open to students wanting to apply for a 2015 start! Don't worry, I'm waiting too!!

    yh it's great! I applied to london office for tax, didn't get through to the interview, messed up the intray in the AC although it was all a good experience. The recruitment process is quite simple compared to other big three, send your application form, do numerical and verbal reasoning test, pass that go through to the assessment centre where you do group exercise, intray and numerical and verbal resoning tests (harder than the ones online), you pass that it's a final interview and you get the job..
