    Is it basically a SJT?

    I'm always suspicious when they say it is untimed. I once did an EY app and did their ridiculously boring SJT over a period of an entire day. I thought I smashed it, but got rejected based solely on that, perhaps they realised I spent 8 hours on it? They probably thought I had reading difficulties or something.

    Yes, on the application they ask if you are applying for an internship and are graduating in 2017 or 2018.
