    Woah damn man! That's impressive.

    I have 2 (but one was ~8 months in gap year) and even with just that I struggle to find enough space on my CV. I decided to focus on the work exp and only dedicate a few lines to ECs. How have you gone about it, because I imagine fitting all of that in must be quite hard? I bet it's a nice problem to have though lol :p:

    Thts still damn good! If I could I would rather do less for a longer time like you did! Well I have decided to dedicate my year out between school and uni for work experince in the City. Doing 80% work, 20% travel. I got them mainly through networking and sending out the odd specultive email and phone call.

    But when you have the whole year, it's quite flexible to fit round.

    What the fu-

    I guess if gap year then makes sense. Still, that's a huge amount.

    If UBS took a while after the test it means you did well in them. They reject you asap if you failed the test, I messed my logic I reckon.

    Don't think Citi, BOAML and GS do tests or do they?

    rejections are so annoying even though I expect majority rejections it still ruins the day lol. I'm from a crap uni though so I like to blame it on that instead of my own faults in the application :cool:

    How long did you have to wait for Nomura to send test invites? Still not heard from them but i applied at the start of December so I'm not really expecting anything at this moment in time
