    Basically, I'm wondering how can I maximise my chances of getting onto an ACA graduate scheme. What companies should I be focusing on, besides the obvious giants like PwC, KPMG etc..? Location and salary isn't of importance as my priority is training/experience and the qualification in the end. For how many schemes have you applied before getting a place? With regards to assessments and interviews, are you expected to have some accountancy knowledge already?

    A lot of these offer positions where theyll pay for you to study for it.

    You havent said anything about yourself though, are you a graduate? Do you go to a good university? Gonna get a 2.1?

    To get into the Big 4 all you need is to meet the entry requirements which are generally 300+ UCAS points and a 2.1 (from a decent uni, although they dont say this) and then just pass their assessments. Theres not much more to it. The hardest part will be getting past the assessment centre/partner interview where you need some commercial awareness but not so much accountancy knowledge.
