    What do you guys think of the competitiveness for grad roles in risk or ops for BB/MM? Is it like for FO where its practically impossible to get a grad position as they've hired most people already from summers or do you have a chance if you have a decent uni and work experience?

    By the way, I had completely forgot about this until now but you can get a 15% discount on the psychometric test packages by using the discount code at www.canarywharfian.co.uk/psychometric-tests

    Job Test Prep - use CanaryWharfian
    Graduate Monkey - use canarywharfianmonkeypack2016
    Assessment Day - use canarywharfian

    I have had both Assessment Day and grad Monkey and based on my personal opinion Grad Monkey is much closer to the real test but Assessment day you get a lot more out of it .. it has more tests, more questions and a wider category! Hope that helps

    I prefer Graduate Monkey personally. The eBook is particularly useful as well as the practice tests. Get the All-In-One Bundle.

    What are the best summer internship alternatives to BBs and Boutiques?
    Insurance/reinsurance. Get to work in the City, careers pay really well. I'm currently summer interning in reinsurance and its really interesting. Unfortunately interns don't get paid much in (re)insurance though, I'm at one of the biggest in the World and IB pay almost 3 times as much to interns.

    Probs get harder. AssessmentDay is like that - 90th percentile on first test is 100% haha.

    4:1? 16*4=54:16
    1. Mars customers 56/200
    2. Home Customers = 54/200
    3. International Customers = 16/200

    Therefore:Mars and Home = 56/200 * 54/200 = 0.0756
    Mars and International = 56/200 * 16/200 = 0.0224

    Which is roughly 3:1 ratio. Dunno might be wrong. Thats the way I would do it anyway

    A lot of people have already said they prefer it to AssessmentDay and say it is pretty good and a good reflection of the types of questions from actual assessments.
