    It is essentially a video interview, they use this instead of numerical tests.

    Source: Blackrock HR

    I cant recall how i did, i try to not be optimistic about these things, helps soften the blow when i get rejected haha, but from what I can remember, I managed to finish it, with only guessing 1 or 2 answers too. If we haven't got an automatic rejection already (i did mine around 2 weeks ago), surely we must have passed?
    I got the invite as well. How many questions do you guys got? I have webcam interview so only 2 questions?

    Thanks

    A similar thing happened to me last year and I just took screenshots of the error messages and e-mailed it to the recruitment team. They kindly reset my tests.

    Guys do firms scan apps for plagiarism?
    My reason for asking is that I last year and progressed well with a bank, so am assuming my app answers were strong. I want to reuse them (beefed up of course) but I've created another account because my email address got hacked so I don't want the firm to see XX% similarity with another candidate...

    Contact HR and tell them you are applying with a different email address. They sometimes automatically reject multiple profiles. Depends on the bank though, some have new systems so your old profile will have been deleted anyway (BAML, Barclays, Citi etc.)

    Its quite easy, don't know what everyone is complaining about lol. I missed two of the Qs because I made a mistake on my calculator. Wish I didn't have such sweaty fingers :L.

    Does Citi reject straight after the numerical test if you failed it? If not, after how much time?

    That was my first TalentQ ngl. But it seemed pretty easy to get 12/12. Tbh, thinking back on it I probably did half of it wrong as it was far too easy from what others have said.

    We shall see. You started uni yet Prince? Looking forward to the fresher experience?

    Fair, they usually suck. I remember doing one for an RBS thing and getting 80th percentile with 7/12 lol.

    Next week, looking to get completely totalled for 10 days straight.*

    Really? I can see why. Tbh ive always been good at mental arithmetic, so most things i can roughly calculate in my head. The only problem is the time limit per question and the number of different answers there are lol.

    haha, I would expect nothing less! Just make sure you have the paracetamols ready with a permanent big bottle of water stationed by your bed xD.
