    Can you apply to SEO if you're not an ethnic minority but a vegan?

    If you apply to SEO now, would you have to wait before you finish your interviews with them and get approved before applying to any banks for SWs, or would it be too late? Apaprently the SEO process takes 4-6 weeks.

    Yeh you would have to wait but only for their partner firms (check the website to see them) - the rest of the banks you can apply for normally.

    Also, last year I did most of applications in late October and early November so you will be fine if it takes a while for SEO to come through

    The thing is that some firms recruit for SWs on a rolling basis so I have to juggle between the benefit of applying earlier without SEO affiliation or waiting a few more weeks possibly and applying with the SEO affiliation.

    What tests did you do for CS aside from numerical? Saw princepieman saying it was 70% by the way.

    70th percentile, so may not be strictly 70%.

    CS is numerical and verbal both kenexa

    There was a verbal and a numerical one. The numerical wasn't too bad, I think I got all the questions I attempted correct with like 2-4 at the end where I ran out of time and guessed.

    The verbal test is harder to judge, but I think it went OK.

    Just a bit annoyed that I ran out of time on both with like 2-4 questions remaining.

    Are you going to wait till you start university to submit your applications?? That's what I was going to do but I'm not sure if it's worth it with freshers and all happening.
    I guess ill probably do a couple every week or so until i hear back from SEO london. People do apply at a range of times so I guess ill try get the majority out by mid October.

    It is indeed stupid, but gets the job done in reducing numbers to a manageable level

    Guys i thought you could just flag ur application with SEO as soon as you sign up and before they get back to you since everyone gets in as long as you meet criteria?

    I didn't know there was a interview process

    Alright thought it would be good to do a quick recap. The SWs currently open are:

    1. CS
    2. UBS
    3. JPM
    4. Deutsche
    5. HSBC
    6. RBC
    7. GS (bearing in mind on a non-rolling basis)

    Have I missed anyone(s)? please feel free to comment

    Btw, does someone know about any free websites which provides good information regarding league tables and different firms deal activity? I've been spoiled with access to MergerMarket during the summer and I'm now desperate to find something fairly similar hahah..
