    i haven't start uni yet so what do I put down in the uni predicted grade box? Should I wait until I have done a few tests then send my application as I should have some sort grade then?

    I am going to an english uni so I am allowed to apply in my first year.

    I haven't started with any applications yet - wasn't really sure when to! As I don't start university until quite late; beginning of October :/ and leaving it until then would definitely be too long so in a bit of a dilemma! I think the EC I've got atm will suffice anyway.

    I remember on the previous thread users had the same issue and would just write N/A or something along those lines. Could always give the bank a ring and let them know what they think you should do too. I remember 1 user called up Nomura regarding the same issue.

    Is it just me or has JP Morgan not started its application process?

    According to the Canarywharfian it's not open; but that was last updated on Tuesday, so I'm not too sure - sorry!

    Can anyone tell me what my chances are like for landing a SW?

    1A*, 5As, 5Bs, 1C at GCSE.
    A*A*AA in Maths, Economics, FM and Physics respectively at A level (+ A* in EPQ).
    Starting UCL Econ in September.

    No relevant finance work experience.

    I competed at regional level in swimming for 4 years throughout my GCSEs and A levels and won a silver medal at regional champs. (Would this be worth a mention/help my application?).

    Hey, I'll be doing UCL Econ this september as well. Give me a pm!
    Regarding the SW application, I think grades, even though yours are good, is not sufficient in a good Spring Week application. But hell, you're at a target so play it all in all, find stuff you did that you can put on a cv (as long as it is recent and decent). The swimming competition is a good example.

    Why are the grades not sufficient? They're more than sufficient. With a few EC's and some clear interest in finance, that's all you need

    Because even though it's entry level, I think you need more to be noticed by the recruiters. In a pool of students with perfect grades (which is the way the pool of applicants for SW is), having sufficient grades is not enough to distinguish yourself, imho

    Hey, thanks for the advice

    Are you waiting until we start at UCL before applying or are you applying now? The only thing I'm thinking about is finance societies etc. Do you think it's worth waiting before applying so I can put something like that down seeing as I have nothing finance related atm?

    I'm in the process atm, but I'll send the applications around early October.
    I don't think that saying you attended the welcome fair of the economics and finance society will do you any good.. if I were you I'd rather find something business-related or which showed some "entrepreneurship mindset" that I did. Try to be creative! Anyway the CV is just so that you can pass the initial screening. Afterward you'll have to be prepared for the online psychometric tests, I think that's the important part of the application
    Then during the interview.. show passion. Aha.
