    Hi all, the application date for EY's School Leaver Programme 2015 (ie you start in Sept 2015) has just opened - 1st July 2014. Nice and early!
    Information and application form (you need to click on the "offices" links on right hand side) can be found here

    http://www.ey.com/UK/en/Careers/Stud...aver-programme

    Looks like you need min. 300 UCAS points, and B's (or higher) in Maths or English GCSE (or equivalents) and is a strong alternative to the classic University route.

    Any thoughts or experiences on this route out there?

    Not sure yet. Looks really tempting. What sort of salary would you be earning if you got the job?

    What does it mean by 'earliest availability date'? Also how do you put in your GCSEs and predicted A Level results as it just says GPA and education level?

    not sure haven't applied. Perhaps best to get advice from EY direct? They have an email and twitter handle on the site...[email protected] or Tweet us @EY_SchoolsUK

    There is a section later on the application where you write down your A-Levels. It doesn't ask for your GCSE's, but it does ask if you meet the GCSE requirements. And I am clueless about the whole GPA stuff.

    I spoke to my accounts tutor and he said it was an American thing so leave it blank as it isn't required and if they have any queries about it EY will get in touch with me

    Was that the strengths test you get straight after sending your application?
