    It was fine tbh, talked about the do's and don'ts in applications. The general consensus was don't lie and link experiences on CVs to what competiencies were developed. A good networking opportunity however, managed to have some nice conversations flowing with two traders, got them on LI. A sweet insight into the companies ethics. I submitted mine a while back but HR said submitting this early is fairly useless as they won't start looking at them until they sort out the penultimates. Mid-Oct is the sweet spot with CS, I reckon.

    ... you get them immediately after submitting app. go to your app online, and there should be a big blue link that takes you to the verbal assessment!

    Check with HR. Should be immediate, but they may suspect a duplicate account if you applied to a CS programme previously with a different email.

    Lol I'm using this event as an excuse to go to London partly...
    The schedule for the BN Festival looks slightly packed so I guess I need to plan where I'm going to be at haha. I'll probably arrive half an hour early.

    Why is there no spring week stalking page listing candidates credentials and applications in the same way that there is for university admissions so you can keep track of when firms start giving interviews and offers etc? The format is certainly easier to inspect than dozens of pages of conversation

    Because no one can be bothered updating it every time something changes.

    That's most likely because no one has set one up yet? But this is a good idea, so I'll set up next week if nobody beats me to it beforehand :yep:

    There's really no sweet spot for when to apply. Apply when you know your CV, CL and testing skills aren't going to get any better

    Personally, yes. I think they value extra curriculars and leadership experience etc. a lot more, although someone correct me here if I'm wrong.
    I agree it's harder. Their cohort is 70-90% Oxbridge and they accept way fewer interns as well.

      Wait I'm confused. Do uni 1st years apply for SW or the 2nd years? Isn't it a bit too early to apply if you've just started uni?
