    Hi, I have my interview next week for GES summer internship 2018 wondering if anyone else is in the same boat? I have looked at the example maths and econ questions and they don't seem to bad but I'm worried about the interview!

    I dont really know but i guess if there are two people asking questions then it'll go quicker. I expect they will ask something about economics to make you think on the spot maybe?

    Yeah it went alright, took about 2 hours in total but everyone was very nice. 1st or 2nd week of April, so quite a long wait

    I have an interview tomorrow at the Cabinet Office. Was it questions on externalities, public goods, inflation, exchange rates etc?
    Was there a verbal reasoning test too?

    If I haven't got a reply by now, does it mean rejection or does each department have different sifting timings? Thanks

    I had an interview at HM Treasury two years ago and didn't get the job (interview was a mare). But they got back to me and said I hadn't got it but they provided feedback as to where I'd gone wrong. Hope this helps.

    Oh sorry, I meant as in from the initial application. Submitted in Feb and haven't heard anything at all yet.
