Our evaluator's comments: 


Nadia Capy-Osgood, a seasoned graduate recruiter who’s worked at various investment banks, says:

This cv is clearly set out but the low score reflects the lack of information given.  It is not clear what grade will be attained at university, or which subjects were taken and grades awarded at high school.  The work experience in Russia does not state whether it was a formal summer internship programme or the period of time employed.  There is no information regarding where the candidate would like to work or details on immigration status.  The Leadership Experience – which I used to score Extra Curricular does not give sufficient information.
