    Do you drive?
    Do you play video games? Xbox or playstation?
    Love or money?
    I'm currently learning, taking practical lessons every weekend.

    PS3, pretty much only play BO2.

    Money, as you can effectively buy girls which rids the need for emotional commitment.

    Why not LSE?

    Which IB? (I'm shocked any IBs take in interns AND pay them so good for you for getting the place)

    What A-levels did you take & how dya think you did?

    Do you have a 'role model' or person in general who inspires you to do what you do etc?

    Do you watch Suits?

    I'd like to think it's quite nice. I was asking a few alumni at my place of work about the university.

    How did you come across getting a summer internship? I would've assumed it's quite difficult at your age? (props to you, great achievement!)

    Doesn't really bother me, as long as I'm not involved.

    Assess T+1 trades, stress testing and the related jazz. Well.. learning progressively for the time being.

    No, I'm not at all rich. My family is mostly working class, I live in a council flat in southeast London and I've never been with a girl.

    edit: In fact my current bank balance is £13.04

    No, he's a stock broker. I have no desire in entering that field of work.

    Not currently, I'm in a full-time summer position but I've been offered workshop placements with other leading financial institutions in the near future.
