Any Statistics from previous years?

Postby arxakoulini » 20 Jan 2017, 17:10

I was wondering if we could know the ratio of total applicants/selected from any previous year. Even if no official data should exist, maybe a former participant could know or make a guess about that ratio.

Also, do they need to select X Engineers, Y Mathematician and so on?

For instance, the number of positions seems to vary between professions. So, are they looking to select a group of people corresponding to the positions in demand? I mean, during the upcoming shortlist selection period, are they gonna reject a good Mathematician e.g. because they have already selected enough of them -relatively to the positions available for Mathematicians-?

I hope you got my point. It would be nice to know how this kind of thing works.

Thanks in advance and good luck to all ! :D
