    The email it came from leads to nothing on google, same for the number that is on the webpage on the link. In fact, the number on the email is missing most of the digits! The person who sent it also leads to nothing. The PwC logo looks strange on the link, and I doubt a legit person would spell online as 'on line'

    Maybe I'm just suspicious, I've sent an email to the person organising the work experience just in case lol because you're putting a lot of personal info into it.

    I received the same email. It's very weird, not the corporate look you'd expect.

    Let me know what they tell you please

    To everyone -> how many suits do/will people have? I've only got one, bought recently, and I feel bad making my parents get another. I might just get more shirts and ties. Do you think this will be fine?

    Don't worry about it, nobody will care especially at this age. I have a few suits but that's because we have to wear them to school too.
