    Is it ok to start an application and finish it later (in a few weeks time) or should it be done ASAP? Also does anyone happen to have a list of banks, tests used and their test providers?
    It's fine, and look through the summer internship thread. I posted them up, cba to repost

    Should I apply to banks that had rejected me previously (e.g. pre-u apps) from the same account? Will it make a difference?

    Btw, is the verbal tests the ******** ones where you get asked to pick something that "doesn't fit in" and then it's some ******** animal no foreigner has ever heard of? Or is it more humanised tests where you actually have to use your brain and read a piece of text and answer some questions.

    The Credit Suisse one makes you read a passage then decide if a statement is true or false according the information you have.

    Tests are done before any kind of interview right? Like, right after you send your application you must do the tests?

    Depends, some firms screen CVs before tests are sent out others screen after. You may well do a test, pass but still not get invited to an interview.

    As a first year (or second of four year)? No, not the regular summer analyst positions.

    But, you can of course apply to the few (2 basically) summer positions available to people at that stage.

    More prestigious = SA. Anything you get in first year will be through cold calling or one of the first year summer schemes.
