    I could rip your argument to shreds but you're clearly an idiot so it's alright.

    PS- Who the hell gives,themselves a username names after their course?

    What? I genuinely found it amusing. Maybe it's being locked away trying to write essays making me go mad...
    Dw, I agreed with you!

    for everyone awaiting for the response for UBS Insights Program, i have talked to one of the recruiting managers earlier today, she mentioned this:

    We have now selected all of our participants for our Insights program. Everyone will receive an email within the next two weeks updating you on their application.

    Has there been any word from HSBC post January tests or BNPP at all? Don't recall seeing anything, although I've not been around much these past couple of weeks.

    They extremely stick to the competency questions. The way she started was something like: So, we have these 6 (or so) competencies and I will be asking you about these. (http://www.pwc.co.uk/careers/student...etencies.jhtml) >>Here they are.

    She indeed said that: Now, I'm going to ask about your competency to lead and contribute to team success"..."now we will move onto another area, demonstrating courage and integrity".
    So, as you can see, it is all competency questions. But is also ONLY these. So don't prepare questions like weaknesses or strengths as they are unlikely to ask those. Instead, read these and answer them. Get at least two examples for each, she asked two integrity questions from me. They ask the questions that are on their website word for word! So, really no excuse if you cannot give an answer.

    Also, I really didn't feel I did well overall but what I did well was that I stopped talking when I was done with the story. Do NOT keep on rambling about stuff-simply stop when you feel you're done. There is gonna be an awkward silence for a shorter or longer period but do not worry about it. Stop speaking. Period. Don't think of it as an awkward silence. You should have the feeling of : "yes, I know what I'm doing, and I'm done with this story. Your turn, dear recruiter, say something." Keep my word for this. I don't know what else if not this technique got me into this programme

    They didn't ask any questions about PwC (that's not usually the case). She only asked: "What is your understanding of the programme you are applying to". It is an interesting way I think to ask this question. Also, commercial awareness-wise, she simply asked how I keep up-to-date with the news. I just told her I get the free Financial Times from my uni and I just subsribed for the Economist. That's it. They didn'y even ask a specific piece of news, even though I had some good ones prepared:P

    Good luck lemme know if you have more questions.
    I have an AC with PWC now!

    (I applied for Partner Shadowing ) To anyone applying to PWC, LEARN THE COMPENTENCIES literally.

    Yes anyone heard from BNPP? Don't think I've seen anyone talk about getting any interviews/ACs from them which is quite odd.

    They don't have those. It's either an offer or a rejection.

    Oh, thanks.

    Still, don't think anyone has said they have received an offer or rejection as of yet.

    I got an offer from HSBC a couple of days ago. Had a telephone interview in the beginning of January.
