    Hi all. Just going to give my profile for Summer internship positions in IBD.

    24-year-old incoming MSc student at London Business School: Already member of China Business Review, Programming society and Finance society. Applied for Student Rep position
    1st (Hons) at SOAS for International Management China (year abroad): Member of Finance and Squash societies

    Internships in Beijing (Asset Management), Hong Kong (Venture Capital) and London (Asset Management but only 2 weeks). No big name but all are respectable.

    EC: cricket (3rd XI captain), squash, skiing, and forex trading. Volunteer work in Beijing orphanage and fundraising on behalf of VolunteeringSolutions.

    Any opinion or thoughts on my chances much appreciated. Going to apply anyway, but want to know if my application isnt that strong. If so maybe i could also consider applying for consulting.

    My 1 big worry is that my latest work experience was 2017 and that i have no internships in 2018. Please do let me know if this is an issue

    Would having retaken A-Levels put me at a big disadvantage if I wanted to get into investment banking?
    What do you think I could do to make up for this?
    I'm considering maybe doing another A level in a year, would that help?

    Sounds like you’re getting involved in a lot (EC’s etc). You’ll break in with enough grit.

    6 is a B, from what I remember. That’s good. Don’t stress, you still need to sit your A levels. You really don’t know now and no one can say “yes you’ll get in”. Just do your A levels - smash them get into a solid uni and go from there.

    Honestly, don’t stress man. English GCSE won’t even be looked at (as much as A levels). You’re going to be up against Oxbridge students - English GCSE isn’t going to be the make or break lol.

    Maybe maybe not like I won't have AS so GCSEs are more important ig lol I want to go to Oxbridge not sure that's still an option but hopefully I can do better in my A levels

    Just depends on the course you want to take - start your research now and plan the best as you can. Visit uni websites and see their GCSE intake requirements.

    Yes, my mistake. All I’ll say is smash your A levels in your preferred subjects, get into a target uni, get spring weeks, internships, convert into FT. Easier said than done, but aim high.
