    They make a screening before they send you the tests which are by the way situational judgment and inductive reasoning. They send me the tests 3 days after I applied (since it is weekend now, i guess you will get it on Monday). 9 days after I completed the tests, they informed me that I have successfully met the minimum benchmark and requirements on the online tests. Hope that helps
    it helped greatly, you were really nice for going trhough all that. anything you need just pm

    Anybody have a clue how Citi are sorting their **** out?

    So I just uploaded my Cover Letter after having the application hanging there for 10 days. Are they notified of my addition to my application, do I need to tell them to reconsider my application in light of my new cover letter? Aside from some *****y generic emails, I've heard nothing useful from them.

    Apologies if this has already been answered or seem very obvious, but for the barclays application did people just upload your C.V., or did you do a cover letter and stuff as well? Its just odd as the section only says 'Upload your c.v.' but in brackets below in mentions cover letter, references, etc.
    - thanks for any advice.
    Check back a few pages, also useful advice on Barclay's interview.

    Lazard sent. Nice and straight forward.

    Don't make the mistake thinking cover letter and answers to motivational questions are two different things, they want you to answer them within the cover letter.

    Applied to all places but have only heard back from ICAP so far, hopefully the "no news is good news" theory is correct.
