Question: is it possible/allowed to apply to a spring week in the first year of a four year course? Also, will I need to do a lot of reading about finance since I know little about it? (I'll be studying chemical engineering at Imperial)

1) normally not - but you could always say that it is a 3 year course... many students do that.
2) not specifically I know people that know jackshit about finance that still made it onto Spring weeks although I'd recommend you read financial news (the FT is good enough once a week - should have it for free through your university). And I'd recommend you get involved with the relevant finance societies at your school - they should help your regarding more specific readings - feel free to PM me about stuff to read depending on you area of interest ie M&A vs S&T vs ER vs AM etc

Given that classes start around August/September and apps open around the same time, what should first years put down for grades/GPA? Should we just put down a list of classes or should we do something else in addition?

I am now a first year maths student at Oxford. I am planning to apply AM spring week next year. Does any body know if the headcount of AM(both spring and summer)is significantly fewer than that of S&T? If that is the situation, I might consider to apply for trading role instead.

it is tiny. BR takes ~4 in Equities, ~4 in FI. Fidelity is probably less.

More than that for Springs (8 in both I believe) but can confirm 4 in Equities for SA/FT.
