    Yes I'm planning to progress within the bank, I've answered this and the second question in more detail in my reply to gr8wizard10's post.
    Make sure you get your personal statement up to scratch. If you're applying to oxbridge obviously make sure you prepare for interviews and entrance exams.
    My personal statement interweaves accounting and finance, as it is applied to investing. How do you think, is that a good idea? I am applying for Accounting and Finance ofc.

    Write about accounting and finance in general, not just as it is applied to investing. Make sure you show that you find accounting and finance exciting enough on their own. Maybe mention that you find investing particularly interesting and then write how that links in with the course.
