you can get pdt control jobs if you have either of the below:

1st class honors (Barcap 80% of the pdt controllers i know are all 1st class)
ACCA or Accountancy degrees with good results
Know someone inside who could refer you in
Prior Big 4 experience doing something similar or relevant
Masters in Financial Engineering, if you are transitioning from backoffice to middle office pdt control roles
