    It's good experience but a lot of what they do is financial due diligence.Better hours but much lower pay. Would take BB and MM above it obviously.

    There are rare cases when people have been fast-tracked for the same year summer internship. Usually why does this happen?

    Apart from BAML is there any banks having summer insight / similar stuff in the August-November period? I noticed that many people have experiences in banks in August / October times.

    It usually is just within a month though. I know UBS has something called UBS Explore 1 day in that time period. Or are those insight days for women?

    There is actually.

    RBS and HSBC offer fast track to SW if you go to their a-level insight days.

    HSBC didn't for last year.

    They might have switched it up, you might be right about rbs, I didn't do their programme.

    Yeah, HSBC didn't offer it (I think) but RBS's website explicitly says you get an opportunity for a fast track.
