    Do banks have a christmas break? Or could we still get e-mails, say at 26th?
    And another question.
    I did all the tests with rbs and then on 17.12 i received this:


    We're pleased to advise that you've been successful in your online testing, and that we remain extremely interested in your application.

    We're currently completing a high number of assessments across all divisions, and there will be a delay in progressing your application onto telephone assessment.

    We do remain very interested in progressing your application and will remain in contact with you for regular updates.

    Thanks again for your application with us and we look forward to speaking with you soon.
    But today 18.12, i received this:


    Thank you for completing your online test.

    We have received your results, which we will now consider before deciding whether we will be inviting you to the next stage.

    Because we will be benchmarking your performance against other candidates who have applied for your selected programme, you may not hear immediately whether you have been successful in reaching the next stage. Please be assured that we will update you when we have reached a decision.

    For myself that doesn´t make any sense at all, do i have an interview now or not?

    No you don't yet, RBS will invite you to book your phone interview on the career platform and then invite you to some kind of virtual practise platform to prepare for it. Until they tell you that in the email, no phone interview is confirmed. Good luck though, the first email seems promising

    Don't lose hope. I have a similar profile.

    Semi-target - Cass
    Summer intenship - 2nd tier IB

    Applied to ~20 SW

    RBS test pass, HSBC test pass, MS int, BAML offer

    around 6 rejections.

    Just keep grinding, you'll get something.
    Thanks but unfortunately I got rejected by the lower tier banks so I'm not expecting much from the bigger ones

    It doesn't work like that. Recruitment is very erratic. People with GS offers get rejected by RBS without interview.

    Why did you bother applying for the 1 day insight, just out of curiosity

    Because I thought it would be the only place I would have a shot at :lol:. I'd rather say I secured 1 insight than none at all. The BBs were a gamble tbh, even the 2nd tiers.

    Very well done.

    So are they different dates or will you have to choose between them both?

    Of course - if you have an offer, immediately email HR for all banks yet to get back to you and let them know you have an exploding offer elsewhere. Some banks are very accommodating, especially if they like your CV/application.

    If you have a good excuse (exams fall into this bracket) let them know once you have an interview and most banks will be happy to reschedule. Keep in mind it'll probably only be pushed back a few days!

    Yeah different dates but DB clashes with pretty much everything else so I won't be able to do much more

    I think that was before the deadline pushback though.
