    honestly, this year if you send off apps by November you're good

    summer analyst processes haven't even fully kicked off, some banks haven't opened yet.. generally just seems slower than last year.

    It interesting how they have made the process much later then usual. I know that full time offers for the past few years have been coming out later and later aswell.

    Random thought - I've just remembered how terrible the UBS interface is. Definitely the worst.

    Does anyone know when Fidelity opens? Every other programme (even their sixth form Early Insight programme) is open - just not the spring week...

    Last year it was a women's spring week - this year it is opened up to all, I believe. You're welcome

    GG. So similar to RBS' 'female spring week' which is also open to everyone lool.

    Thanks for the info though!

    How are you feeling about this round of applications?

    Perhaps this year should be men's only, to keep things equal

    As a female, I'm only applying because it's open to everyone... I'm not particularly loving the whole 'positive discrimination' thing either!

    idk what RBS are doing this year, the new progression route was explained when I was there in summer 2015, but it seems to have all changed again!

    I'm not feeling too bad about this year's cycle, I've already got a few apps submitted - hopefully I've put enough work in over the last year to make them good ones, and (doubly) hopefully managed to keep my maths skills passable How about you?

    Hi team

    Just thought I would introduce myself to this thread as I have been stalking it over the last couple of weeks. I am probably going into Uni from a slightly different perspective as I have spent a couple years working in finance after finishing college to get some experience, but now I am joining everyone in their first year in applying for Spring Weeks.

    I have to say, I am absolutely scared of the numerical tests, I have a couple of applications that I am ready to submit but I am just scared of submitting them as I expect a numerical test request near enough instantly. So I thought I would try and get some practice in before I think I am ready to submit. But now I am hearing some firms are not submitting numerical tests?

    Anyway, good luck to everyone.

    P.S - I made some calls and found out Barclays is opening in November and Citi in the next couple of weeks.

    You weren't part of a big4 school leaver programme were you?

    Thanks GW. Nah I wasn't, it was much smaller firm on a rotational scheme and then I moved into an Analyst position.

    Lol same, they're being so haphazard with their recruiting.. I don't even think they'll be hiring any grads/summer interns in front office this year. That said, still enjoyed the insight programme there - met a lot of cool people.

    Fingers crossed for you then! I remember you saying a few months ago that you were doing a four year course, do you think that extra year of prep you've had has helped bolster your application this time round? Weighing up whether to apply this year or wait til next since I'm considering a year abroad.

    For me, short of the disaster of exams/unexpected change of uni, I think I've matured a lot on this gap year I've just come off of. So hopefully that's reflected in my interviews and applications.
