    No. Maybe after 7-10 years, depending on bank / team. Only bankers VP level and above make that sort of money.

    Sorry for asking again, but for the people who didn't get the benchmark in the MS tests, how long did it take them to inform you?

    After submitting the online application form for HSBC, how long do you have to wait before being invited to sit the online tests?
    Couple days, they just check you meet initial requirements then send over SJT and Inductive Reasoming

    Hi, I know this is a bit of a stab in the dark and I may be posting this in the wrong are (I've only just joined, sorry!) but I was wondering if someone could lend me some advice. I told myself for a good few years throughout secondary school that I was going to get an apprenticeship (accountancy) and had no interest in university but after a very unimpressive GCSE results day (didn't fail anything, but massively underperformed in comparison to what Ii probably would've been capable of had I have tried) however I am now sitting my A2 levels and have my heart set on a degree in Mathematics with Finance and hopefully a career in IB. I am very motivated to achieve this (it's not the money, it's the demanding nature of the job and how everyday is different plus a love for statistics) which has shown through how my predictions have changed from based off my GCSE grades. Basically, which would be the best (as, Oxbridge/LSE etc. are off the cards due to my GCSE results) university to strive for with *predicted* grades A* (Maths) and an A in both Statistics and Psychology with the end goal being a career in IB. Thank you in advance, Paul.

    TL;DR - wants to be an IB, bad GCSE grades, good A Level prospects, wants to know what uni would be best for IB

    Cheers mate! How did you find the tests? Must admit that I haven't done many SJTs (only for BofAML so far) and no Inductive Reasoning - mainly just numerical and one verbal (for Credit Suisse).

    Might be an obvious question but for the credit suisse spring week it says BA or MA but if you are doing a BSc can you still apply for the Credit Suisse SW?

    BNP Paribas and Lazard. Also perhaps Barclays but I'm not too sure about them.
