    Does it look out of place if i don't mention first year grades on my CV, and is it ok to say 2:1 expected on applications for summer internships (do they check?). I had extenuating circumstances

    hey guys, how did you answer "How does RBC differentiate itself from its competitors?" question? I don't see any benefit of repeating some BS from its website.

    you can say 2:1 expected in application since you are not graduated yet, but it looks a bit odd not putting your GPA in your CV

    Just say 2:1 (expected) on your CV too
    If they ask for your 1st year grade in applications then perhaps you can add in the additional info box (usually at the end of the application form online) your extenuating circumstances affecting your 1st year grades

    Its just a bit confusing because my first year has no weighting on the final degree, so on for example GS and Credit Suisses applications it asks for GPA, i wasn't sure if it was ok to put down predicted (credit suisse asks if this is predicted, GS doesnt). Thanks for the help

    What about Citi's numerical test? I applied last tuesday but haven't received anything yet
    Same boat here buddy, applied for the same role. Hopefully, they'll get a move on this week, as i know they screen apps before sending out the tests.

    Haha okay. But what's the form of it? Only video-recorded replies to some random strength-based/competency-based questions?

    Am I right in thinking that for Citi, you can apply for multiple roles as long as they are in the same division?

    i.e. for investment banking, you can apply for placement, summer and full-time?

    The FAQs seem to give the impression this is the case.

    Take a load of **** and throw it at a fan. Thats the test.

    Basically its the first test and what u just mentioned combined. ie carries on from a business situation. Can't really prep for it.

    Hey guys,
    I'm a mathmo going into my second year and I recently decided to apply for an IBD internship next summer. I have very limited knowledge of finance as of now so is it better to educate myself and apply a couple weeks down the line or apply now and try to cram everything in? i.e. would I get a lot of technical questions very early on in the application process?

    I had 5 days to do the Barclays' business insight stage 1 and after 4 it said my time has expired?!

    Does someone have the HR email address? Have been searching on their website but could not find it.

    Same problem for me. maybe it's just a temporary technical issue
    Same here.
