Thanks Dominic . Actually i am going to start 2nd year of MFE. I believe that for the junior quant roles, i don't need to wait one more year, as the maths and the econometrics we have done is enough for the role of junior quant ( by looking at the interview patterns , questions etc )I am also working full time and have family commitments as well so not able to maintain a study schedule. And that's the reason i was looking at the interview specific course. Also i find it a bit strange as london is so much finance centric and strangely enough there is no specific institute who carters for such a courseAny feedback is much appreciated. Thanks

One key skill in quant industry is self-sufficiency. Students with good academic background dont need quant interview coaching. Buy some interview books and prepare yourself instead of paying thousands to someone else to walk you through some interview questions.

tmoob, I can see your point but there is good and looking like you're good and finising the course helps a lot with looking good.Ashkar's right as well.

Ashkar You are right, i just have to properly manage my time and nail it down. Dominic Looking at the junior quant roles / expectations, i wonder if i really need to wait one more year to start applying for junior roles ? Would they consider me for interview , if i mention MFE in progress ?Thanks

As long as you say "currently studying" it is a perfectly valid way of presenting yourself.

another way to exceed expectations is to do a program like CQF and then NOT put it on your resume.this obviously assumes your resume is strong enough to be invited for interviews for good roles...
