||Hey congrats ...which firm?can u tell me which depts/fields/areas are their for articleship in big4 & which one must select to make optimum use of big 4 articleship interms of getting knowledge & what all was asked apart from AS & SA? Were there GD also. PLs do reply...
It was EY. There are many areas such as Assurance, Taxation, Advisory and so on. U could refer their website. I have interacted with the articleship students of big 4. Trust me if u want a brand name for ur articleship , join big 4. But if u want to gain knowledge in all areas join a mid sized CA firm. coz big 4 will give u an entry only in one dept, say tax..or audit. and u may not get to do things like preparing form 3ca 3cb etc..coz the work gets divided among thousands.
I did not have GD round. 1st round was communication ronud. had to talk for a minute on a general topic they provided. simple round
2nd was written test, mosty accoounts and audit objective type question. a few questions on drafting emails to seniors based on given circumstances. Easy round..this also.
3rd war HR round..simplest of all..genral questions..nothin to mention..
Technical round is where they try to be hard on u..all syllabus related questions and questions to test ur personality and leadership.
Be calm..be yourself..you will do well..all the very best.
