The exercise is not timed but you will need around 30 minutes to complete the registration form and the online exercise.
What is the grand prize?
The overall winner will receive a one-on-one employability skills session with a member of the ICAEW Early Careers team.

Are there any other prizes up for grabs?
Yes. Additional prizes will be awarded to applicants who have excelled in certain areas of the exercise. These prizes will be announced at the end of the competition.
All students who take part in the competition will receive a personalised feedback report. This identifies your strengths and offers advice on how you might further improve your skills and maximise your potential.
