    No I'm not sure how long it should take - when I applied two years ago I heard within 3 days of passing the test- this year has been a lot longer

    It's still early days. I think everyone is on holiday now. It is still August and I think most interviews take place at least in September or later so let's keep waiting.

    If I remember correctly, there isn't an option to add a cover letter, just a CV.

    Yeah there isn't specifically but I was wondering if people were attaching cover letters with their CV upload

    Accenture is good. Also why not go for KPMG? Take every chance you can!

    How long after taking your tests did you hear back from Deloitte?

    Good luck with EY!

    Hey, I heard back from Deloitte after my numerical test after about 5 days and almost a week for the critical thinking test but they might have delayed their response time more now seeing as they are making changes to their recruitment process. I've been waiting more than two weeks to find out if I've got an interview!

    I'm guessing September 1, as is for most of the other Big4. EY just wanted a head start, I guess, to get the best candidates early in the race. EY and Accenture seem to be the only ones ahead

    I'm still into IB :P but just advisory division, e.g. financial advisory and m&a advisory. So I am interested in both IB and consulting

    For most of the big 4 firms, they require a B for maths at GCSE level, I only got a C in IGCSE maths, but I made up for it in the International Baccalaureate where I obtained a 7 (the highest mark) for maths studies. Do you think it's worth a shot for me to apply to these firms? Thanks in advance.

    Yes - stick it down in the exceptional circumstances box than you had a bad result at GSCE for X reason but have studied maths at a higher level and achieved a strong grade of Y.
