    Please don't throw away £100+ (not even including travel) for a 2 day event. There'll be loads of insight day opportunities hosted by the banks themselves (they cover travel expenses too) once you get to AS/A2. Use that £100+ to do some small scale trading if you want.

    LOL you're only 15 so you still have plenty of time to decide if IB is for you. Just involve yourself in as many clubs at your school as possible and start doing some online research on the different divisions in a bank and what roles may appeal to you. Maybe start talking to some of the IB guys on linkedin about their careers and what they would recommend you to do.

    don't waste money on this programme- wait until you're in Year 12/13- then you can apply for insight days which will be far more useful and free.
