    Yes, it's called the female spring week but is open to all supposedly. Not much point applying to rbs tho since they aren't recruiting for their ib arm anymore

    When they ask for your UCAS points do they want your top 3 grades? I did general studies but I don't think if I can add it in as a fourth A-Level. I also did EPQ does that count?

    Also, I am currently on a 3 year course and I am hoping to do masters elsewhere and since I have 3 years down for university, is there usually an opportunity to list it elsewhere on an application form?

    Also, would it be too late to submit applications in mid-Nov, I know the sooner the better but I have not started practicing for SJT, logical, verbal ect so I am worried I will send it off then be asked to do these tests instantly and I won't do as well as if I had more time to practice.

    Don't bother writing about the EPQ unless you did really well in it. Even then, the probably won't care. I would mention general studies alongside your other A Levels.

    Test sent off automatically for CS, Nomura, BAML Rothschild, MS like immediately
    DB,UBS are like not immediately but in 24hrs in my case
    HSBC can't remember but may have a pre-screening
    Citi will pre-screen I believe

    If your Top3 grades are good enough I doubt you need to put down EPQ. Probably put down in the section where some banks ask for special circumstances that wish to be taken into account?[ not sure ask Prince maybe to confirm🌚]

    Yeah top 3, or if the drop down menu goes >420 (i.e. JPM) then include dropped AS + extra A levels.

    No point listing it if you intend on applying this year to spring weeks.

    They won't include it into the main requirement of 300-340 depending on firm

    There were two questions, one about UCAS points and one about stating an intent to do a master's.
