CV stage: good uni/grades, some example of ECs (particularly team/leadership related ones), any prior exposure to finance (e.g. insight days), any prior work experience (could even just be a part-time job), any awards or achievements, well written responses to questions/well written CL

Int stage: well researched answers to questions, confidence/personality/vibrance, appearance/clothing (are you well put together?), if face to face/phone - your general interpersonal skills
That's a pretty low percentage, normally what uni does the accepted people come from? And what is the chance of one coming from semi target get one ? Thx

same ones as always mostly targets and semi-targets + some non-targets.

honestly this is a pretty misguided line of questioning.. it's pretty much a given that getting these programs or into these jobs is hard. there's virtually no point in asking about what type of "chance" you have.

if you want to get into this stuff: take some initiative, prep hard, apply early and believe in yourself. otherwise, there's no point in even trying.

Are good GCSEs necessary/helpful? Also should you list as "10A*-B" or list them individually?

How am I supposed to enter my A-levels and GCSEs for the J.P.Morgan Spring Week application? I don't have 'majors' for my sixth form/secondary school. I don't even have A-level grades yet!

Might be a good joke to people that haven’t heard it but I can bet you all those at the networking events have many times
UCL in the end
