    Just habit, I suppose. Why do you so this? Idk the people there are nice af, could see myself enjoying it. I spent an hour talking to head of EMEA rates desk about what pranks they pull on their summer interns amongst other serious stuff.
    During the week, about 3 hours is sent on the desk and if you want to see IBD. It's not even on the desk it's just group discussion.
    The people are fine, yeah, lots of banks have great people. Honestly look deeply into these spring weeks. Barclays is one of the worst

    Was the offer I considered the least and rejected the most quickly.
    Wouldn't rank then highly at all. Probably worst of the BBs

    Don't worry I did it and thought the same but got an email today to say I passed, I can't imagine the cutoff being particularly high, hardest test I've done by far.

    How about everybody share his preferences ? Because I actually know about the prestige of the banks but not about the conversion rates or the quality of their SW.

    Blindly I would have gone in order with GS, MS, JpM, UBS, (DB which I failed), BAML, Citi

      I did. Do you think the boundary is high? I felt the same way about the RBS numerical, but managed to pass.

      any ideas when we will hear back about our results?

      From inside information within Citi I've heard that if you get less than 80 % on the numerical, the possibility to get an interview drops quite significantly.

      Benchmark is 65th percentile and numerical tests scores are usually a binary pass/fail that don't carry forward

        Same here. Won't they react if many of the potential candidates find their tests too difficult? It frankly seemed even more complex than the famous RBS numerical.
