Looking for more feedback?

We're giving all students the opportunity to take on the role of an ICAEW Chartered Accountant by completing a short, online game.

This is an optional extra for individuals who are looking to receive personal feedback. The game should be completed individually and will take around 20-30 minutes to complete.

Play the game


The game is similar to the first stage of the recruitment process and will provide good practice for you ahead of interviews.

Following the game, you will receive detailed feedback on your strengths. This feedback can be used for personal development, on CV's or in UCAS and job applications.
