    No idea. Definitely worth it if you can get access. I used to jump on a friends bank subscription that he used when interning but it has stopped working now .

    what are peoples thought on reneging?

    I know you won't be getting a job/internship at that firm for the near future, but does the word spread across the banks?

    edit: does anyone know anyone who has reneged, what were the consequences?

    generally no, especially if both places are BB/EB

    definitely one page, otherwise they will not even look at it, leave out very old and useless experiences/extracurriculars if you need more space

    My education credentials are all great. Great GCSEs and A-levels and got a first in my first year of Maths at Cambridge. Now in my 2nd year (penultimate year).

    However, I dont have any work experience except some engineering stuff from when I was at school. Nothing in the field of finance. Not a treasurer for any society or anything. Don't really know much about the banking world. I just do weight training and football on the side of my degree.

    I want to apply for internships this year because I guess its the best way to find out whether or not I want to do it as a job in the future. A lot of people have said to me it would be foolish not to at least apply (you never regret trying). And obviously the money is attractive...

    My question is with only my academics and limited extra stuff, would I have a shot at an internship? What should I do between now and the interviews to "catch up" in terms of financial knowledge? Do I need to learn any specific programming languages? ATM I dont even know where to start, or which of the many different roles I should be applying for...

    What should I do now if I dont want to miss the summer 2017 application cycle?

    For working out the roles, see http://unofficialguidetobanking.com/

    Everyone has a shot. You need to speak to people, do an insane amount of research and apply asap. Attend networking events to learn more, look at the careers website of the bank. You don't need to know programming languages..

    How long did they take to get back to you after the phone interview?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I found out 5 days later. I did the interview on the 5th and got the email confirming that I had got through that round on the 10th.
