  • 5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Also depends on the department. For example, in tax department I was given no responsibility, though that was probably because it requires some technical knowledge which is impossible to learn in a week.

    3/5
