I would say no, better to work for a internal transfer at BDO or MM. There are literally hoards of people in Big 4 audit trying to transfer and many people with more than 1 year audit experience working on transferring.

Teams are fully stuffed and have capcity.

They require you to create financial statements from the GL in a short amount of time.

Nope. Transfer to BDO FDD first

B4 will be tough without any experience, MM is probably more realistic.
