    is industrial placement same as off-cycle internship?
    No. Industrial placement is for those who have a sandwich course. Ie do 2/3 years then one year in industry then come back for final year. Typically 12 months.

    Off-cycle is typically 3-6 months and are aimed at either those with year placements or graduates.

    There must be hobbies or life experiences not on your CV? Maybe you travelled round Europe alone, lived in France when you were younger, have nine cats, trained for a marathon, starred in an advert, collect stamps, make music videos, got a poem published.... Think what you've done mate. *

    You will need probably 13/18 to pass. But if you want to stand out you need to get 17 at the very minimum :/. Even i messed up with the MS one. I reckon I got 14-16.
    No-one stands out because of a numerical test, they are just used to cull applicants.

    erm. Yes they do. We had a representative from the Deutsche HR team come to our university and tell us that its just as important as everything else. If you get 18/18 whilst another guy scrapes it and gets 13/18, everything else being equal they obviously going to pick the guy who gets 18/18.

    Quite confused - are we supposed to apply for the summer ones now or apply after we get some experience with spring weeks etc? Are the summer ones on a rolling basis too (I've heard GS is not)? And lastly, I thought the summer ones are for 2nd years not 1st years?!

    Maybe. However a few banks just set it up so that you do test then the next one gets sent after that e.g. UBS last year. You will definitely know after the next one. How did you feel it went though?

    1. No, but there are 2 such summer programmes available for first years, which I listed out in the SW thread. And if you do well on the SW (as well as conversion interviews/exercises) you don't need to reapply anywhere as you'll get an offer right after.
    2. Yes, even for GS
    3. That is the case. Everyone applying in this thread is either a penultimate year student, a final year student or doing a masters programme

    Thank you! Do you recommend I apply now for the summer ones that are open or wait until I've got some more experience (ie after spring weeks)? I know GS has something in the summer for 1st years (correct me if I'm wrong), but which one is the other bank? (There are so many pages and posts in the SW thread that it will take ages for me to try and find that exact post )

    You can't apply to any traditional summer internships until it's the right time, only HSBC and BNY Mellon have formal programmes for first years.

    GS doesn't have anything in the summer for first years

    As I said, an SW's prime purpose is to fast track you to a penultimate year summer internship offer directly afterwards.

    It's quite literally, the first couple of pages.. :/
