    Why does EY have so few vacancies in their grad programme? Transactions has already closed and it was only a single vacancy. Last year they had separate vacancies for valuations, business modeling, restructuring etc. Have those already been filled or going to be added?

    Is it because it was filled though? I remember last year transasctions had open vacancies until Feb or so, it's impossible that all the offers have been made already. Maybe it opens later on, like PwC's which will be in mid-Oct.

    I remember they had vacancies open until Feb too. But transactions vacancies had been open since 1st Sep and only closed yesterday I think, which could only mean they have filled up the places or they have received a large amount of apps that they think they will fill up the remaining spots. The lady on the phone said its unlikely to reopen when I called yday.

    Think this is referring to the one where you had to match the answers based on their formality. It was actually quite hard, easily the hardest part of the test. My only advice would be to just concentrate and spend some time thinking of how informal some of the messages are. Think about whether you'd be happy with that being sent as a professional email I guess.
    What be a good enough time to pass the verbal for EY???

    Also part 2 of the verbal where u have to correct any spelling/grammar/punctuation mistakes, is it mainly spelling mistake that u have correct? My couldn't a lot of mistakes regarding grammar or punctuation.

    Having an open application for Transactions, I certainly hope it's not the former! Even if the latter is the case, it means crazy competition... :ashamed:

    Thanks for the info though! Did my verbal and numerical about 5 days ago and no news...

    I can't really say what a 'good' time is I'm afraid. There is a mixture of spelling mistakes and punctuation mistakes.

    Has anyone who has successfully completed the Deloitte tests and been invited to interview received a link regarding convenient time for interview yet? It's been 3 weeks since I passed the tests but still have not been able to arrange an interview.

    Hey, for the deloitte application, for the 2 career motivation questions it says 200 words in bullet points but when I put in my bullet points in (copy and pasted from microsoft word) and save it, when I return back it doesn't save as bullet points and just ends up as question marks.

    So did you guys manage to put bullet points in or just used normal text for the 200 word summary

    I just took out the bullet points and started each point on a new line. The bullet points were counting as words so taking them out allows for more text. I've passed the online forms/tests so it didn't hurt my application. Best of luck!

    Good experience overall. My first face-to-face interview so not much to compare it to, but it was a positive experience.

    Nope :confused:. But I know people have called up EY HR and been told that they've passed and that they'll have information sent to them soon. I'm torn between waiting and calling them up about whether I've passed the tests.

    EDIT: got my strengths report today (30 September) but still no response from EY themselves
