    Answers like this aren't needed, he was only asking a simple question and all that was needed was a helpful response.
    I answered his question. To put whatever he thinks will support his application, the rest was a joke as I thought would be inferred.

    Are you meant to put one week work experiences you did after GCSEs in Employment History?
    (I'm currently doing the HSBC application btw)
    Thanks
    Put the most relevant and recent experience you have.

    Personally, I wouldn't put down just 1 weeks experience if it's something like working at your local shop, but if it's something a bit different or relevant, then maybe worth putting it.

    As most candidates will have very limited, if any, work experience it probably won't matter too much, but if you think it'll make you look a better candidate, then by all means put it down.

    I will be taking an online test tomorrow - are there any suggestions to make sure that no technical errors arise?
    What is everyone doing to make sure that the test goes smoothly - I could not take it during the weekdays as my classes are packed - hence only weekends.

    I worry that no one will be in the offices if I need to contact somebody should a technical error arises.

    Thanks,

    Good internet connection is probably about it. Make sure to be in a quiet environment, as to not get distracted.

    Usually emailed, although this might not be the case everywhere.

    Hi everyone,

    About the RBS application, do you upload your cover letter at the end of the process or you write it in the box of the competency question ? IMO the competency question is quite close to a classic cover letter...

    The reason you applied - We would like to know why you think this programme is the right programme for you. Please tell us what excites you about the programme and why you think that it is a good fit with your future aspirations.
    Thks

    Don't let it dishearten you. I've been rejected to a fair few places. What is your background? UCAS pts? University? Degree? Past experiences?

    Also, when did you apply?

    Well, i have an uncommon university career, i am from Italy,milan, got a bachelor degree in philosophy with the higest grade but while i was studying philosophy i have found interest in finance and so i decided to get a bachelor in economics and financial markets at the same university(catholic university of Milan). I regret of not having gone to Bocconi, but here i am: i should finish in february with high grade(107\110). I can paste my cv...when you look at the mail and discover "we regret blabla, wish u the best for blablabla" is so depressing.
    What about you? Any tips?
