Jedidiah Ubaldo - Incoming Investment Banking Analyst at Goldman Sachs.
Through my time at Cardinal Pole, the dedication of all the teachers in the sixth form pushed me to achieve my best. I studied Mathematics, Further Mathematics and History, and achieved A*A*A*. One big benefit of studying at Cardinal Pole is the relatively small number of students, which allows teachers to focus more time on each individual student. The school also presented me with various opportunities, given I had expressed my interest of entering the banking industry. For example, in Year 13 I managed to secure a 5-week internship at a boutique hedge fund which truly made my CV stand out in an industry which is highly competitive. Currently, I am finishing my final year at UCL studying Mathematics and I will be joining Goldman Sachs in summer as a full time Analyst in the Investment Banking Division. The sixth form truly served as a cornerstone to my academic and professional career.
I attended Cardinal Pole Sixth Form until 2016 where I studied History, English Literature and Drama and Theatre Studies. I achieved A*AB in my A-Levels. From there, I achieved a place to study History and International Relations at the University of Exeter where I achieved an upper second-class honours. After graduating, I took up a position at Deloitte LLP, within their Audit and Assurance department, where I have been working for the last year and a half.
