    What are people's opinions on signing a spring week offer in April and then reneging on it in for another offer on October or even early 2016?
    You'll probably be fine, although of course some banks will dislike it more than others.

    I spoke to someone who reneged a grad offer, then actually ended up transferring to that bank only a couple of years later and they didn't even bring it up. So for just a spring week its extremely unlikely anything would happen.

    Interesting case! Do you know which banks might dislike it more than others? It just seems like such a long time to then reneging on the offer...

    I honestly don't know what banks would dislike it more. However if you renege in October, it still gives them plenty of time to find someone else to fill your place...

    Well its been 420 pages of highs and lows, apart from a few muppets everyone has been helpful and encouraging. Similar to ariellechantel I've converted both my SWs and I'm happy to help. It's a small world out there so I'm sure many of our paths will cross again.

    For anyone that has an offer for HSBC's First Year Summer Internship (its not IB) here is the FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/787573741325168/.

    Good luck with your exams and anyone who will be applying for Springs or Summers next cycle!

    EDIT: Also http://www.studentladder.co.uk/ is a useful website as it lists placements and offers advice on applying etc.

    That's fair enough and I might change my view on it after I've completed this summer, I'm not entirely sure what I want to do as a career yet.

    for fast track interviews held in late summer, is much/any consideration given to your first year grade? will they ask for results etc or not because those held earlier couldn't have had theirs at the time?

    Hey everyone!

    Has anyone gone through the JP Morgan Markets assessment centre after the spring weeks? I have mine next week, and I would greatly greatly appreciate some insight on how it goes down, what to expect, and your overall experiences.

    **Positive vibes will be awarded**
    Thank youuuu!!
