    Yeah same, I had my mocks last week as well, I applied this week. And I haven't done my video interview yet... I'm so nervous and I'm scared they're going to ask me a question I won't know the answer to... The questions are going to be about me and Schroders. I'm so bad at talking about myself lol... have you thought about what division you want to work for during the year or what skills best suit you? I picked numerical and analytical skills.

    I'm sure you'll do just fine! Just plan your answers for common questions
    I think I chose planning and process management as my first choice and written and verbal as second.
    Btw, are you planning to apply to university next year, or do you plan on being a school leaver?

    Hey, I am also applying to this. Going to hopefully submit my application by the end of this week. I have done so many video interviews it becomes second nature. Best way to handle it is not look at yourself when doing the interview.

    If you need any help let me know.

    Nah, they don't skype you. It's a recorded video interview. So they display the interview question, you have like 2 mins to read it, then you're recorded saying your answer. I think you're given 2 mins to answer as well.
