    How would you answer these two questions:

    Describe what you think will motivate you about working at Deloitte and the role you have applied to.(max 200 words in bullet point format)

    Please let us know what you think you will be doing on a day to day basis during your gap year placement.(max 200 words in bullet point format)

    Is anybody else applying? If so, where and what service?

    We can't answer these questions for you. Look up Deloitte's strengths, the role and purpose of the service line you've applied to and connect it to why you're applying.

    Second one is literally a google search away of key tasks and responsibilities.

    what was it that stopped you going further? is it very competitive, my AS grades weren't that great (ABB), do you think that will bring my application down?

    Aptitude tests. And no, those won't bring down your application.

    You seem so smart so if you can't pass them how could I?
    Sorry for all the questions but do you think its worth uploading a CV? Most of what's on mine seems irrelevant e.g. volunteering at a youth club. I thought I might add a few lines about skills such as team work, communication etc. and maybe hobbies like DofE, sports and music. I thought it might show that i'm interesting and hard working or something but I don't want it to seem like I'm bragging haha thanks!

    It was because I didn't practice ahahaha.

    If you search for numerical tests and verbal reasoning tests online - usually you can pay for a pack - just churn through those and practice.

    Nah, go for it. All of that is interesting info.
