    For those banks applications which require a 2.1 or higher on track or achieved for spring weeks how is this evidence shown to the banks or are these just general typos and you just apply and these 2.1 in any degree discipline dont need to be shown?
    You agree to present them with evidence upon request that you're either capable of achieving 2.1 or have already achieved it.

    Bit of an odd question but I did a spring week in 2016 but now changed to a 4 year course (graduating in 2019 instead of 2018) and I am applying to spring weeks again. The spring week is obviously on my CV but I am struggling when it comes to talking about it on my cover letters. As I have already done this insight why exactly would I want to do another insight? Any suggestions how I should phrase it/how I should talk about the spring week on my cover letters?

    They're likely right now waiting to get to a certain threshold of applicants to see percentile scores, i.e. getting a large enough sample size before first cuts.

    Don't think so, they have accumulated that from the previous years. Moreover, someone in here already got interview with CS.

    If you write on your CV that you've traded FX for a year and made a small profit, will they ask you to bring proof to the interview? Like should I prepare documents that show the profit made?

    Do you think it's worth putting fx trading on your CV if one is applying for a spring week in markets? Or do you think the banks won't really care?

    I spoke to someone at DB and he said for the SW the CQs are more than enough, the optional Cover Letters are more designed for Summer/Grad applicants.
