    I'm not entirely sure. Just apply to the one which is closest to you, it'll increase your chances slightly.

    I applied! Also do EY (found that harder than the PwC one)
    Got 5/5 for Numerical
    4/5 for Verbal.

    Do you know when we are supposed to find out whether we made the next stage?

    Did you get feedback from EY? I got level 4 so I'm pretty sure I'll get disqualified. Not sure what went wrong, I must have read a question or two wrong because I found it quite easy

    Level 4 for EY?

    Well you might have a chance, but I did get level 7 and was rejected on the basis of not being entitled to free school meals.

    Yeah, 4 out of 7. I am entitled to free school meals so I hope I do get in although I don't have high hopes at the moment. Not sure where I keep going wrong with numerical reasoning tests, I've been practicing a lot but it seems I always flop.

    If practicing doesn't help I'd suggest to look back at GCSE maths topics like ratios and percentages.

    I'm pretty good at those though, most percentage and ratio questions are easy. I think I read the question wrong quite often and that's why I don't do well.

    Oh and on the BDO numerical test everything was in like £4000's of millions and for some reason I just started getting confused and panicking so I have practiced that.

    Yes I did. I got Level 6, yet to hear back from them on the outcome.

    Closest one, and you're more likely to get it if you're nearby. If London is not your closest office, yet you still apply there, it's pretty much a guaranteed rejection because they will have got plenty of strong applicants from nearby and they don't want to be paying higher travel costs!

    I applied for London although the Uxbridge office is closer to me 'theoretically'. It would probably take me longer by Tube to get into Uxbridge than to London Bridge.
