I can't speak for the technical questions if there are any (there often aren't for entry-level roles, but I couldn't say for sure), but there are some general questions you should be ready for:
Why this company?
Why this role?
One or two examples where you showed X trait. (leadership, adapting on the fly, adversity, persistence, teamwork, etc.)
What are your career aspirations? (e.g., where do you see yourself in X years time)
Tell me more about X part of your CV. (be ready to expand on anything in your CV/application)
Try to answer using the STAR format: Situation (the context), Task (your responsibilities and role in that context), Action (what you did), Result (how it went).

If it is entry level they very likely will not ask you any technical questions or anything ridiculous. It will be about you, who you are, what your goals are, why you are choosing finance/their company... And they will probably have your CV out and ask you questions about it. So be prepared to answer everything about the CV. Make sure when you are answering, you use tangible examples and give details rather than general waffling. The other thing to remember is that they are not timing you so you can breathe and talk for a while, they won't mind. Be yourself and don't try to sound like you are egotistical or trying too hard. They mostly just want confirmation that you are a decent and amicable human being capable of doing their tasks. This guide has a few good tips:http://www.accaglobal.com/gb/en/stud...ource=Facebook
