    Hey don't be worried too much I just got my phone call today saying I've got accepted into the program at Birmingham! but I also got an offer from PWC as well for their work experience as well and just found out that they clash! I'm gonna have to sadly decline my offer though because not only does it interfere with pwc it intereferes with the Birmingham summer school

    I got an email statig they'll give me an outcome by the 15th of May what about you???
    The waits been so long
    Yeah they did but I assumed it'd still be earlier tbh

    I presume I will get an email tomorrow, since it's the last working day before the 15th, with a rejection

    I hope not because it looks like a lot of fun and excellent experience :/

    Same I was thinking that and seeing that they called the person from Birmingham and a friend of mine got a place on the Easter programme and they called her it seems like such a good opportunity I just want a place sooo bad! I really hope we both get a place

    Hi, haven't seen a thread about this particular work placement.

    Has anyone hear applied and had their interview? I had mine a couple of weeks ago. I think it went well - to be honest, it's so hard to tell. I thought I messed up a lot for PwC but I got in, so who knows.

    I got stuck on one question about making sacrifices for my team - I don't think I've ever had to do that tbh.

    Well. Now I'm worried that it's so popular this year that I have no chance of a place

    Hey guys, can somebody please give me tips for my interview coming up tomorrow. I'm quite nervous for it. Also how long was the interview for you guys and approx how many questions do they ask? Lastly when they say what type of questions may come up in an email, are the questions the exact same in this particular case.

    Mine lasted between 20-30 mins and it's really just like a conversation where you basically sell yourself, they'll ask you things like when have you ever worked in a team, obstacles you've had to overcome but i think it changes just be yourself, I hope this helps also what city is yours for

    Mine lasted 31 minutes and I was asked about eight questions. I don't think I was asked many or if any at all from the list they sent via the email but it is helpful to do research on those questions and have those answers prepared.

    Bear in mind, it's a strengths based interview so they're looking for how you'd behave in certain situations. Try linking your answers back to EY's core values. Have a Word Doc open with possible answers you could give. So for example, list down a time when you've been a leader, team worker etc. I was also asked when I'd had a setback and how I'd managed to get past it. That sort of stuff. But if you are going to be reading from your Word Doc, try not to sound too rehearsed. Make it sound natural. This is all stuff you've probably read or know about before. Still, hope you do find it helpful.

    I thought I'd performed awfully but I got through so there's hope for you yet. Best of luck!
