    can i just ask those of you who are currently getting interviews and/or offers can you give a little insight to like what uni/course you study? also like are you in that kind of crowd already? also how strong is your educational background?
    I mean, you can already guess for most people.. It'll majority targets/semi-targets, good A-level grades and insight days (or not even any finance exp). Then a small amount of non-target folk.

    If you was quick to call, shorting the MXN/USD would've made you some bucks

    I especially believe target school is important.

    I passed it a month ago. They have been writing me an email every 10 or so days to "reassure me that my application is still under review" and to "thank me for my patience".

    I haven't received an email since finishing the second assessment. However, I just logged onto the portal and it says I've passed the second assessment. Not sure about the first one though ah.

    Based on the current climate in the UK and around the world, would it be better to work for an Investment Bank (JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley etc) or the Big Four ?

    If Investment banking, which role/division would be best to enter and which one is the best in terms of prestige and job salary ?

    If the Big Four, which role/division would be best to enter which one is the best in terms of prestige and job salary ?

    I know this is a broad question but I am still quite new to this and I will be starting university next year so I'm gathering as much information as possible. I have already researched into the topic but would like to hear any professional opinions about the matter. I am also planning to study in the area of Economics, Business, Maths and Management at university. Thanks.

    If prestige and pay are what you care about, you shouldn't aim for either. Your goal would be to end up in a hedge fund or in private equity.
