    But for the education bit it only had 10 slots so did you leave out GCSE's?

    What did you include in that bit?

    What sort of options are open to someone going into their 1st year of uni this September in terms of getting onto SW's/Summer internships? Many of the openings for 2017 require you to be on course for a 2:1... and so assume you are already at uni?

    Doesn't actually matter what grade you put as a first year for SWs, just put on track for 2:1.

    This Q has been answered a lot.

    And for other apps in general. On the app form have you guys entered all your GCSE grades? Can you leave out grades if you want?

    Is it wrong if you dont *fully* disclose a gcse. For example say i got 5a*, 4A's and a B and on my cv i put 9 a*-a. Technically im not lying, but i just havent fully disclosed the B. Is this a stupid thing to do?

    As I am a second year student of a 4 year sandwich degree, I know I can apply for both the spring weeks and industrial placement programs. But do you guys think it will effect my chances for either program if I apply for both SW and IP at the same bank?

    I have no idea why it would but just wanted to make sure.

    why would it matter, mate I got bs and cs and I'm in banking

    either case if you don't want to disclose it, don't.. GCSEs don't factor much

    ps: nice grades

    Hey guys,
    I've just started looking at spring 2017 programs and to be frank I am a newbie to the world of finance and banking. I was checking out the JPM careers stie and they seem to have programs for Markets, IB and Asset Management. Which one should I apply for, or roughly what are the differences between them? Thanks!
