Yeah, they are different.
Thanks for the reply! Was only informed that applications opened this time last week and I am trying to gauge how quickly I need to get these tests done so that I don't miss my chance but can also get some more applications out there. KPMG is my preferred firm atm so would like to go there but I am just wondering whether I can put it off until Saturday before completing the last stage of psychometric testing

I'm a bit confused... I applied for the Investment Advisory programme the day it became active back in August. Passed everything after that and heard back after audio submission over 2 months ago. Still awaiting information about a LP. Although scrolling through this thread it appears not a single person who has a LP invitation applied to Investment Advisory... maybe Investment Advisory has been heavily over subscribed? If anyone has got a LP invitation and also applied to Investment Advisory, can they please let me know? I didn't see any claims of this in the thread so far...

How long did KPMG take to review audio submissions? I submitted yesterday and just wondering when I might get confirmation...

Also, for those who did the LP event, how did you find it? Which part was most challenging? Which part did you enjoy the most

Thanks!

I've been invited to the same LP! For Business Consulting, Don't you find it weird though that the LP is at a museum and not their offices?!?!? No idea what to expect there's hardly any info on their website

Is anyone still on hold after submitting their Digital Audio thing? I got an email on 22nd October saying they're very interested in my application, but I haven't had any news since. I applied for Graduate Tax 2019 start. I hope they haven't already filled the position, KPMG was my preferred firm

It's pretty straightforward really, just have to answer the questions as they are, they're looking for your personality to come through throughout. It seemed almost like a cover letter to me (but without the formalities). If you have work experience, make sure you get that in. Also, make sure you sound enthusiastic throughout
