    Also, can anyone confirm how long you get after applying to complete online testing for the following banks:

    Credit Suisse
    BAML
    UBS
    CitiBank

    I've finished my applications but don't want to send them off yet as I'm worried they'll only give me 48 hours to practise for the tests.
    First two instantly
    UBS speaking for myself within 24hrs
    Citi pre-screen before sending applicants tests so literally takes ages

    This is an odd question, but I sent off my Barclays application and didn't realize that I was going to be required to do an online interview within 5 days. I'm really busy still applying for others banks and practicing numerical testing.

    Any idea what happens if you wait longer than five days, you reckon the link would expire and I can just ask for a new one, or is that overly risky?
    No idea why you wouldn't aim to finish it within the 5 days. I dont think anyone could speak from experience about not doing it. Don't risk it.

    It really doesn't matter what OS you used to save a docx file. The docx format is a universal format that can be opened on any word processing software - tho of course pages can change the formatting a tad.

    I know a few people who got an internship in private wealth management in their first year of study. Therefore I will try that too but it's really hard to find something finance-related in your first year.

    Last year the first LSE offers I saw were in the first week of November, so I wouldn't be surprised if a few people per year get offers in late October.
    Is LSE first come first serve?

    probs a withdrawal of your application.

    doing other apps is not a valid reason to miss the deadline btw

    Just wondering, if they say you need to be on track for a 1:1 or 2:1 how would I know? I'm in my first year and don't have any indicators.

    Also how many are you guys applying to?
    If I apply to 14 then something is bound to clash?

    When do banks tell you if you failed the test? Because I did many numericals but had no answer apart from "we are reviewing your application" (or similar).
