Hello, I was just wondering with business cadetships - are you only allowed to pursue a single degree at uni, because working full-time is really demanding.
Also, if I'm applying for a UBS cadetship, the website doesn't specify which area/dept I will be placed in - so what should I be expecting. And would I ever be offered a role in their core operations; as an investment bank or in asset management as a cadet?

Thanks so much!

Are you wanting to do a double degree? I don't know many which allow or encourage it anymore...

I'm not exactly sure, but I might do want to do something like com/law, or com/info sys, com/something
I know people doing a Cadetship with UBS doing Comm/Law. Of course, it would require very effective time management – and sacrificing social time – but it is manageable, and they certainly wouldn't disallow it.

Hey mate, I don't think they've replied to anybody yet. I'm not sure how long to expect. If I was to make a guess it would be within the next 1-2 weeks.

I don't think I got the email. Other people I know have. Do they send out a rejection email, and when do they send it out?

I'm not too sure, unfortunately. Keep checking your emails however, they may still be sending out links.

Has anyone who is or above the 8000th applicant received their competency test email? Because i was around the 8000th applicant and havent received it. Although its maybe because i didnt make it.

You can't. I think he's referring to your application ID. There is no way there would be 8000 applicants.

As for the test, it really just questions your problem-solving skills and logic. Not much you can do to prepare. Make sure you do it in a quiet area and have some paper with you. What makes it difficult is the time limit. Good luck!
