    I had mine a couple of days before christmas too...However I remember my interviewer telling me that it will take a while after I hear from them, so I say be patient.

    Maybe the person who interviewed you has still some other candidates to interview.

    possibly?? I know BP make an active effort to recruit from LSE, so would be surprised if it wasn't open to LSE...

    hmmm
    It's open to Imperial students as well, so i would definitely apply from LSE; if you're good then they won't be taking ICL or UCL students over you just based on your university.

    do GS test??

    if nobody has heard, i'd assume they wait till the application deadline then assess all apps.
    I don't think there is a GS test? I only asked cos I got an email saying my application had 'gone into review' and it's been stuck like that for 3 days! Apparently they like to double read everything really slowly just to make sure they understand

    is there a list of this "target" unis?
    i would guess they are oxford cambridge lse and imperial but maybe i'm missing some.

    and do you think it actually matters if you go to one of them or not?

    My application has only been received... might be something to having a double application because I messed up the first one with the right of work and then emailing them blah blah blah....

    Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, Imperial, UCL & Warwick are the main target unis (not necessarily in that order, and not necessarily the same for all divisions).

    Generally speaking if you are at one of these the chances of an interview are much higher, but then again there's plenty of people, even on this thread I guess, who have secured interviews/offers outside of these 6. And, there are plenty of people at targets who have been rejected by everywhere.

    What the heck?!

    Just got an email from ICAP saying that they've withdrawn my application as I didn't schedule my AC. I scheduled it as soon as I got the email hearing from them...

    I don't think you would be saying that if you knew how much the heads of desks are on.

    I did. It's 100% competency based, very relaxed, although I remember there were a few tough questions relating to very obscure aspects of the competencies. Also make sure you can think of more than one example for demonstrating each competency as some questions are very similar and you don't want to end up repeating the same situation again and again!

    They let you know how you did by the end of the next business week by phoning you

    I felt the phone interview went well afterwards, and they called me later that week to let me know they were offering me a place!

    Hopefully I'll see you there!

    Best of luck

    False alarm.

    Got worried there but I emailed them and it was sorted out very quickly.

    After a certain level, they scrap the base and you just live of the commission.

    2 - 3 million is not uncommon, and I have even heard that someone got paid 5 million on a good year.
