    Can i ask for those of you that have had the application reinstated what level did you get in the numerical test?
    Hi, I got 7/7 for my numerical, but I believe as long as you have 5 or 6/7 you'll be on equal grounds with everyone else. I know a few friends of mine who secured internship positions with a 6/7 in numerical.

    Did they reinstate your app for the position u applied to or a different one?
    I got an email about reinstating for a tax internship but I asked if they could reinstate for corporate finance the one I originally applied for.

    Hi guys! Just a quick update on my application. EY sent me a request to complete the online tests again despite completing them a few months ago. Did anyone encounter this as well, or did you guys just progress straight to the phone interview without redoing online tests?

    In the email I got sent at the bottom it said "state one divert option only" do u know what these means?

    I understood it to be choose another available programme u want to be reconsidered for if you dont want to be reconsidered for the one mentioned in the email.

    My application was reinstated for Tax, even though I applied for Technology Consulting. I didn't even take the tests again, they just invited me to a phone interview. Anyone else?

    They sent me an email saying that I need to take the online tests again but then sent a follow up email saying that I have progressed to the next stage of the application process. It all seems to be very messed up. When I booked my telephone interview, it said that I was applying for the position I was originally rejected for, instead of tax.

    Went pretty badly imo. Some questions that I remember:

    Introduce yourself

    Describe the EY strategy. How do you fit in?

    Why Direct Tax? Why UKI? Why London?

    Is the opinion of the majority always right? (literally just said not really) When have you ever challenged someone's opinion?

    Do you like to take up work and opportunities on your own? (or something along these lines)

    How would you go about getting business for EY? Why do you think this will work?

    And some more generic questions that I can't remember

    Why UKI was a bit confusing because there isn't much info available on how different it is from working in FS. I just said that I want a more client facing role.

    London because it is London haha. Financial capital, HQ of EY, diversity, opportunities, there's loads to say.

    By the way I spoke to a few people who had secured their positions in EY after the reinstatement and most of them said their phone interviews were quite average which is a good sign for us!(I guess).

    Just to reconfirm, which position did you get reinstated to? Cuz the questions you received were: Why Direct Tax, How would you go about getting business for EY. Which seemed like a Direct Tax question and a Consulting question altogether.

    Yeah since it's June already they probably are quite desperate to fill up the positions asap. Lets hope for the best I guess.

    I got reinstated for Direct Tax. The question is relevant there too, you will need to speak about how you will convince clients that they should get EY to handle their taxes.

    Good luck for your interview btw! Let me know how it goes

    don't worry too much as they mentioned it might take them up to 2 weeks. I emailed EY 1 week after the reinstated email was sent to me, and 2 hours right after my email to them, they got back to me stating that my application has been sent to the reinstated position. 5 days later (total 12 days from the reinstated email), I was invited to the strength webinar.
