    Hopefully will get the HSBC one at least, got rejected from JP morgan. Anyone want to share their academics who was successful? Just out of interest..

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    GCSE: 2 A*, 8 A, 1 B
    AS Levels: AAAAC
    A Level: AAA (predicted)

    I honestly don't think academics matter that much at this stage, people get accepted with not so good academics.

    I think a lucky hat's unlikely

    I think having your firm university offer on your CV makes a big difference for insight days. Everyone I know with an offers from Morgan Stanley / JP Morgan have got offers from Oxbridge. One friend's got an offer for maths at Oxford and was rejected by JP Morgan, who I think place a bit more emphasis on those extra questions than Morgan Stanley's straight CV and covering letter. Rather not pour my academics all over student room but I can PM you if you like

    Good luck with HSBC, have you applied to RBS?

    I don't have an Oxbridge offer but got onto both - I did have a strong CV/EC's so I guess that also plays a big role.

    Same here. I also don't have an Oxbridge/LSE offer either. Got accepted at RBS today and rejected from HSBC, but appealing.

    Which uni/course are you doing? Well done, I doubt it'll be much of a loss but you can always try. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take...

    Yeah definitely plays a big role, if you don't mind me asking, have you got any previous work experience that you think would've helped?

    Im in yr12 so I don't have any offers from uni but I got accepted to MS so it definitely doesn't matter! I think work experience is the key...I didn't have any AS or A level result so it wasn't my grades!

    I also got accepted for the HSBC insight day. It said it was for women but I emailed to ask and they said that although it is aimed at women, men are able to attend.
    I've been receiving phone calls from an 0800 number over the last 3 days, could this be RBS?

    RBS called me from a 'Private Number' but I guess it could be them. Call them back and see?
