    Isn't it self-explanatory?

    It's a special week in the spring, where all us fortunate nerds get together in canary wharf in suits in what will be our initiation as corporate whores into the big wide world of finance.

    Hey, sadly no! Got rejected yesterday, quite puzzled because it's one of my stronger applications. But you win some you lose some...or lose most in the case of spring weeks.

    You have an interview right? Hope that goes well!

    Do you think that it's possible for non-uk students to get a spring week programme?

    Thank you

    I prefer to be called a corporate slut, thank you very much.

    One A* is worth 140 UCAS points.

    140 times 3 is 420

    Your A at AS is worth 60 points.

    Some people who got CS interviews applied very recently (past weeks or two). I applied about 3 weeks ago. You reckon it's worth calling up and asking HR about the application and how its progressing?

    Is it less than ideal to not put down gcses and as levels in the cv? Cv is currently two pages with them
    CV MUST!!!! be one page only. I've heard 2 page CVs don't get looked at.

    Hopefully!
    I'm sure you'll do good, you've done well enough to get an interview so you're obviously a good applicant. That great post a user posted in reply to your question about interview preparation is top stuff, great advice. If you have that covered you'll be fine.

    i don't think they'll be technical questions at this level though?

    I think it depends. From what I've been told, if you mention something technical in your CV e.g. you follow a particular market, commodities, currencies etc. in your interests or you have done work experience which involved doing something technical then I think it opens the floor for them to grill you on it.

    But in general they do see it as an intro to IB and there are loads of applicants who have only started their interest in finance so not often overly technical.


    ...we should hope!

    I thought there was no point in putting down GCSE's on a CV when applying for spring weeks/internships? Or maybe it is better to just put down x number of gcses at A*-C including English and Maths?
