    Hello! Wow wish I saw this thread earlier!
    Two tiny questions:
    - any clue how many spots this year for Barclays Insight programme?
    - Anyone got JPM? Are the dates the same?

    It has now been over 4 weeks since I had my CS-interview and still haven't heard anything. What do you think I should do?

    what do you actually get to be involved in on spring weeks or more importantly internships? Do you get to work on real projects in the business?

    As a few others have said, it's much like the first round interview style wise. Have a think about examples for things like solving a problem, working in a team, dealing with a person you disagreed with etc - they want an example to support nearly every question. Good luck! Which department are you going for?

    Just received this from RBS
    "Thanks for your patience. We are still reviewing your application. We will aim to get back to you in the next 2 weeks to let you know if we are offering you a place on the Spring Week programme. "
    So basically a rejection...
    Honestly they should just say instead of playing this waiting game.. :/
