    I made it to a top bank's final round last year for SA, is there a point reapplying this year or will I be straight in the rejection pile?
    Also, i guess my answers to online app motivation questions were good enough - is it a complete no no to reuse some of the content? (Referring to a question like 'what do you know about the division' or 'greatest achievement' etc., not CL). I'm thinking chances are someone else will be reading it, even if it's the same person, they probs won't remember my app and banks aren't technically allowed to use old applications to judge you..

    Best material to buy/use for free to prepare for the online tests?
    I'm using AssessmentDay at the moment, I'd rate it. The bundle pack is £35, and it gives you access for a year

    I'm filling out the JPM application and I came across this:
    Do you currently hold or have held a visa in the past 12 months for the location that the role is in?

    I've answered with "No," and then it says:
    Please specify which visa you are on or previously held?

    Both of these are compulsory fields, so I'm not quite sure what to put in for the second question as I do not require a special visa to work in London. In this section should I just mention that I am a British citizen and that I hold a British passport?

    I would appreciate any advice, no matter how stupid a question this is...

    Did you contact them or did they contact you? I also sent off my app without saw the motivational questions. Thks
    Emailed them. I had to use a different email address after withdrawing my app because it wouldn't let me apply for IB again, but that was literally what this person in EMEA IB recruitment advised.

    For pure AM places like schroders , will they take on recent grads for their summer positions or can you only apply for grad if you've already graduated?
    They take on grads anyway, so just apply to their grad scheme.

    I'm a penultimate year student without any SW, but some general work experience in a couple small, local places. Is it better to apply for a SW and try to convert or to apply straight for a SA role? My impression is that without a SW, it's very rare to get a summer internship. Any suggestions?
    That is false. Most SA applicants won't have SWs.

    Is it worth applying if you were rejected for SW last year? Can you still use the same account?
    Do you have an idea why you weren't chosen, like CV, grades etc.

    Is it better to put down 1st "Expected" or 2:1 "Achieved" if we genuinely do expect that grade?

    Is this question a joke?

    You haven't achieved anything if you haven't graduated yet...there are no half-way prizes.

    Could you be asked to explain the Black-Scholes Model if you apply for S&T or is that something not to worry about?

    Well, I mean it is a nobel prize winning model, so I assumed it was a bit advanced to explain for an S&T internship lol. But if im okay just saying its a model to price European options then i guess its cool.
