    Hey guys!
    I'm applying for the 2017 School Leavers Audit programme as well. As far as I'm aware there's no 90 second video in the undergraduate/school leavers programme? Applications are only open for graduate at the moment

    Oh thanks that's great to hear was dreading that video!
    Here's where it has the new application process: https://home.kpmg.com/au/en/home/car...n-process.html
    Yet maybe its only for graduates.

    hi guys could really do with some advice. i want to study chemistry at university, i have written a chemistry personal statement and will be applying to universities that teach chemistry, but the KPMG school leavers programme is very interesting and it is something that i want to do. so the question is can i still apply to unis that offer chemistry with a chemistry PS through UCAS and still apply for the KPMG school leavers programme?

    KPMG school leavers is separate of UCAS so you should make your PS relevant to the course you're applying to

    Yeah as your applying through KPMG's website so what you put on UCAS will not be involved in the application. It will also not take up one of your five uni options even though your going to uni if you get onto the audit course.

    Failed the SJT just now before I even had the opportunity to have a go at the online tests. Really annoying and surprising, because I thought I answered quite well. The whole process seemed to be unnecessarily long-winded with the videos too.

    It's meant for the school leaving audit programme. Yeah applications are not open yet, I made the forum early to see how many are applying.

    Cheers mate. Are you applying to uni too? Hoping to get this but if I don't I'll just go to uni and do a Physics bachelors, then try and end up doing a grad scheme.

    Yeah good plan. Yeah would love to get into this but it's soo competitive. My uni choice would Loughborough for accounting then grad scheme. So no matter what I'll hopefully end up being a accoutant😀

    Nice, good luck. Either way, it might be like a 5% chance or something of getting in but if we didn't apply it'd be a definite 0%.

    It should open in September, its a very competitive programme that requires online tests (numerical and verbal reasoning) to continue with the application. I'm currently revising for those tests and would be happy to help you prepare if you want.

    Here's where you apply when it opens it also explains the course in more detail:

    How are you revising for the online tests? I've heard they're really hard!

    Just type in free Cubik numerical tests. Been using assessmentday still not sure whether to buy anything, apparently they are hard but the pass thresholds low so we got a chance 😄
