    what division is this for? I only had to do a logical and numerical for them (which they have said I have passed) but havent heard anything since. (I applied for strategic consulting btw)
    Yeah I had to do those first - then had to do the big one after. The questions are short so it takes about 30min but very repetitive.

    This was for BRS in Deals (London).

    Guys do banks care about your tests score, provided you pass? Can a low pass jeopardize you? For example UBS...

    How long did it take for you to receive the invitation for the long one after passing the initial tests?

    It didn't - I was given them all together but had to do that one last.

    Hey really need help guys.

    Basically, I just completed one week work experience at Barclays in Corporate banking. Although I enjoyed it, I still want to go into investment banking. Pretty much, everyone liked me (not too be too cocky) and I got everyones business cards there. Anyway, the last woman I saw today is a VP and she really wants me to intern there.

    Now, here is the problem. I have already submitted an application to IB for Barclays, do you reckon I should pull that and try for corporate banking. The woman also said if I have any trouble to also email her. This way next year when I go to UCL (currently at Birmingham) to do a finance masters, I will be a better position to apply for summer internship in IB after I graduate. Surely an internship this year in corporate is better than nothing?

    Opinions please. Thanks
    Go for Corporate Banking at Barclays. If get IBD somewhere else, go with that. If not, go with CB at Barclays. Then try for IBD next year and hopefully have a full-time offer in the bag for CB at Barclays as back-up.

    Someone please help - I was doing the PwC online tests and my browser just crashed. I opened it again and it was fine and I just started from the beginning. Will PwC see that it was closed and think I did the test twice??

    So worried

    As the test was not submitted the first time around, PwC is not likely to find out that this happened. The advantage of using external testing companies is that firms only receive the completed tests that accompany each person's applications.

    Thank you so much <3

    Been trying to find this out but do you/anyone know which firms don't use the tests? So far I only know Goldman and JP Morgan. Are there any other banks/consultancies that don't?
