    I applied for London although the Uxbridge office is closer to me 'theoretically'. It would probably take me longer by Tube to get into Uxbridge than to London Bridge.
    I think that would be fine.

    If say you lived in Oxford and applied for London, they probably wouldn't accept because Reading is closer and it takes less time to get there

    Do you guys know of any other work experience placements? I've applied to EY (probably rejected) and BDO (failed numerical test) and hopefully I'll do well on the PwC one so we'll see. I know PFK have some placements, and I'm in the process of arranging something at RSM. Is there anything else?

    Level 4 for EY?

    Well you might have a chance, but I did get level 7 and was rejected on the basis of not being entitled to free school meals.
    You've heard back from EY? How soon? I sent mine off like 2 weeks ago with my tests completed.

    I think you still have a chance so long as you're not below average.

    I'm taking History, Government and Politics, Sociology and Business. Are you in Year 13 by the way? Because the Insight Week is only open to Year 12 AFAIK.

    Hey, yeah im in year 12, lonnng story short my sixthform gave us the choice of doing 3 alevels and carrying them onto A2, or 4 A levels, and you can't drop the 4th one. (i decided to do 3). If you're planning on going to University, what are you planning on studying?

    Not sure really. I don't really intend on university, I'm rather interested in a school leaver scheme. If I was going to go I'd study History though, it's a passion of mine.

    i think you have a good chance. your application is also very important I'd say, maybe a bit less so, but if its very good you could be an exception of sorts.
