Have the interviews started? If so, do you remember when you applied?

From last year's forum, it seemed that the process is first round -> second round (or case study) -> Superday, but I could be wrong.

I applied as soon as the application opened and will have a first round in the next 2 weeks.

Probably got school/gpa screened out. Only good thing going for me is my current internship, I just applied for exhaustivity. I applied on June 22nd if that helps

I got an email from HR with a link to edit my application and password. At the end of the application, there was added section asking if I'd be interested in their renewable investment teams/portfolio strategies? type of role. Anyone else got this?

Has anyone heard back about a fundamental research superday or know what to expect during one?

I received an email about 2 weeks+ ago to arrange a time slot for the final round (FR, London), the invite came about <24hours after the deadline of the case study. I think desco interviews vary widely between individuals (heard they tailor it based on your CV) but can't say for sure though and I'd appreciate any colour about the FR final round if anyone knows.

Did anyone hear back from the case study about a superday and if so how long after submitting?
