    Unfortunately didn't even get an interview.. Not really too sure why Cause I got 9/10 in the tests and have a good academic track record.
    Only reason is the actual application, but thought that wasn't too bad either (other than potentially it was a bit too informal- but that's debatable).
    could be a really competitive area

    Ahh I'm sorry man! Have you looked at some of the other work experience scheme for the other firms?
    I got EY that I applied for but that one I thought I was less likely to getting in, but other than that none of the others either offer work experience explicitly which haven't gone past the deadline.

    I've not had it yet, still waiting for a reply. Bit worried because in an email it said the interviews need to be completed between 21-31st!!

    Yeah I suppose it doesn't take place in London I didn't get any email like that. Maybe someone else from London can confirm or deny this.
    I applied for London and didn't receive this email or any other opportunity for any kind of assistance!

    Huge good luck to everyone doing their interview this week! I can remember how daunting it was and how much I was sh*tting myself.

    Just be yourself, listen to the interviewer and talk slowly. Take time to pause and think what they've asked you. Do not try and think what they are thinking/writing, that's the worst thing you could do.

    hopefully will see you on the days where all successful applicants meet together!

    Me too! They had sent an email last week saying I'll receive an email shortly letting me know if I was successful (or not), but here we are.. Interview week- and no response! not sure what to make of it; I'm presuming I don't have an interview. :/ which location did you apply for?

    I'm in the same boat! Don't think I got an interview either

    damn. I think my interview went really well! jamestg did they hint on whether they will accept you at the end of your interview? they didnt say anything for me though the interviewer praised me for extensive preparation (which I actually barely did) - I hope that's a compliment

    Glad to hear it went well! They didn't make any indication whether or not they would accept me, but by the sounds of it you probably have got it!!

    I just went through the five skills that James posted earlier and made brief notes on them. Also some brief notes on PwC but that's really it.
