    Does anybody know if there is a numerical test for the DB Scholarship or if they just use your scores from your Spring Week app for the scholarship selection process?

    well, have a look on the scholarship faq's.

    It says that if you apply to the scholarship and another first year program, you only need to sit one online numerical test.

    I got invited to sit tests for both. I completed the tests for the SW a few weeks before they invited me for the Scholarship. I havent sat them yet so i'm not sure if its logical/verbal

    oh, hm maybe ring them up to find out cos it does say on the website you will only have to sit online numerical just once

    I am not sure as I have only applied to their SW.

    Edit: Have you got your results back from the first numerical?

    Nope, still waiting to hear back. I havent sat the tests for the Scholarship so I'm wondering which tests they invite you to, could be a logical/verbal as far as I know since they only invite you to one Numerical

    Nope, straight AC.

    Is it usually telephone interview THEN AC or just varies between firms?

    It does vary between firms but Barcap's say they do telephone interviews as part of the process. Perhaps only for summer, not spring.

    Well done mate!

    BarCap does use phone interviews for spring weeks.

    The application process is: online app-->tests--> competency based phone interview--> AC--->Spring Week (can be fast tracked to summer internship) --->You get £250 for the spring week.

    This is according to HR...maybe the process has changed between November and now, or maybe Micheal XYZ is a special case.
