    Hello,

    Has anyone given thought to the schemes that are going to open in September/October for 2018 starts? I know Standard Life, Black Rock and a few others open around this time.

    Which are you looking at currently? Goldman Sachs has opened. Registered interest at RBS's as a back up if no luck with any Asset Management roles.

    Yes, about 2/3 weeks ago. But they won't start reviewing apps until about September I've heard. M&G apps have just opened and most others will do in September after they've given interns most of the offers I assume!

    Well, I'm keeping an eye open for some more applications to open so I can apply!

    I've done them. They are not the same as other companies. Numerical is shorter but verbal is much longer. They aren't particularly hard, just you need around 2 hours to complete all in all. Good luck!

    No. I assume they'll get back to us within few days though. Once you record the video interview the wait will be longer (few weeks) according to their FAQ

    Just got an email back actually, saying I haven't passed. Surprised as I passed last year and thought I improved a lot since then. I did have a problem whereby my laptop froze and I submitted two answers without completing the question. I emailed them about this at the time, but haven't had a response yet and I didn't think they would be that significant. Anyway, it's a shame as I was very hopeful for this one. Will be interesting to see the feedback when it arrives. Hope you have better luck than me!

    Did you get onto video interview? I got my feedback, mostly average/above average but one below average. Weirdly though, I got above average in the section I skipped 2 questions by accident and below average in what I know is my main strength from the lot haha.. anyway, win some lose some.
