    They've not sent me a timetable or any details yet, which is worrying as its only about 3 and a bit weeks away for me. All theyve sent is the address and timings, but not who to report to, who I will be with etc

    Same. I received the email saying they're getting in touch with line managers and I should hear back next month (May). But I didn't hear anything. My work experience starts 3rd July and that's just a month away

    Your degree is the only academic thing that banks really look at. Thye don't really care about A-Levels. Just get into a target uni.

    I emailed them again today and they finally told me everything I need to know. I'm not too sure what to wear though.

    Let me know how your placement goes!

    It was extremely disappointing to be honest, my location got moved last minute due to short staffing. Originally I was going to be in their biggest regional branch however I was moved to one of the smallest so I was only able to do wealth management.

    Hey! Sorry, its been a while since I completed it, but I have to say that it was really good. I was placed in commercial banking/private equity, but I ended up seeing all parts from large corporate to private equity to real estate. I even ended up getting to speak to a trader working in Canary Wharf for about an hour. I've made loads of LinkedIn contacts, and hopefully, they will be useful. I am not sure if you've already done yours, but if not the advice I would give is to really make sure you open your mouth and develop a rapport with your line manager. I was quiet the first day so I didn't do much, but the second day I talked a lot more and ended up doing loads. Ask loads of questions, and be enthusiastic about the whole thing.
