Re: Will they tell us that they have received our file?

Last year I received the acknowledgement email the 29 of January. But don't worry, last years some received it almost on the second week of february. Is a harsh wait xD

The shortlisted list is usually available from 20-22 of february, last year came out before the date they gave us.

Re: Advice (about writing the letter and related)

My final grades are on the academic transcript. I still think that field should be, as it is written "Schools +14", the high school grades, if not my mind is going to implode making a black hole.

Yes, they love secretism. They ask you not to mention the involved companies.

They will send you instructions to make letters for the companies for those that you have been shortlisted.

And if you are selected, you will have to sign a confidential contract. xD
