    Do you reckon Mitchell Goldman would pass the Barclays insight tests? Is that the kind of fit they are looking for?

    Do Citi screen before sending the tests? How long does this normally take and how long do you have to complete the tests once they eventually come through?

    i) Yes
    ii) It took 3 days for me
    iii) 5 days

    Don't have access to a computer? You should apply to Barclays as they love their emerging market sh*t during their application process. You will do well seeing as you evidently already live in one.
    Ohohoh, what a bright remark - this has made me give up the discussion!

    I wonder if Jes Staley was interviewed with all his CV and prior experience blinded and whether he also had to sit a series of insight tests to judge his fit for the role...

    If I am applying for the same role but st multiple levels (full-time, off-cycle and summer), will I have to sit the same test three times or will they just send me one test?

    That is sth I am wondering as well, I applied for the same role at 2 levels, but so far got numerical test for only one. Btw, how you updated your cover letter for 2nd/3rd applications?

    Literally just changing the role title on my covering letter and anything on it that was role-specific (about when I am available to start for off-cycle etc.)

    I don't see a reason to change the firm-specific or me-specific part of it so it looks extremely similar.

    Oh wow, so you cannot change the covering letter for different applications on their system? For **** sake...

    What did you do about this?

    Smartphone - got you! And to answer the next question - no, I don't feel it's too convenient to do a potential video interview using a phone!

    Extremely hard. Not the questions but the time limit and the million potential options it gives you. They use TalentQ.

    How long do you normally get per question in the SHL verbal tests? I've noticed that Assessment Day give you way too much time to answer the questions than usual.
