    I've heard that it's possible to get into quant prop groups as a fresh grad (if you're academically exceptional), as opposed to macro prop groups where you need loads of experience... do you know if there's any truth to this?
    I believe it is for the boutiques, but the bigger names will be after Masters minimum anyway I would've thought.
    But for Quants specifically, it's a little different because there's generally a bigger payrole. I'm looking at Quant Trading, which isn't as Mathematically intensive as being a pure Quant.

    By fresh grad, I meant no "real" experience (proper work experience as opposed to internships). So a Masters without experience would fall under that category :lol: plus most unis seem to be doing 4-year MMaths or whatever now

    In which case, yeah it is true.

    But still, Quant Trader > Quant

    Yo guys, I know it's kind of early, but which exam result are you dreading the most? I think I'm least worried about French, but most worried about English Lit as it is hopefully one of my A-levels! I think i messed up Geography too -.-
    Any science.
