    I completed Nomura's tests more than 48h ago and never got a "tests completed" email or a rejection or anything. Status online is "logical test completed". Anyone else in the same position?
    Yes, I did them earlier. Haven't heard anything, although I think I flopped the logical.

    Does anyone know the provider for Rothschild numerical test?
    it's proprietary (i.e. their own test)

    Is it a similar style though or something completely whacky?

    From what I heard when friends were applying last year, the test is one of the hardest you could take, rivalling Talent Q haha

    It's similar in style to other numerical/verbals but I've heard it's a lot harder.

    Relax mate, I'm joking, I think these tests are the biggest pile of **** ever invented.

    You know the guy who co-founded SHL, also co-founded TalentQ and also makes a mint out of creating material and creating practise material for certain websites. The guy has legit created a whole industry and minted himself out beyond imagination.

    For whatever reason the providers sell to HR that these predict on the job performance with some *****y evidence and then HR believe them. They are used just to cut applicants so I was just being sarcastic in my previous post because it's ****ing obvious to a duck that these tests in no way predict actual performance.

    I've never come across a candidate who thinks these tests are any good.

    Lol man thanks for clarifying. Since doing econometrics I freak out whenever people mention causation relationships, especially when they don't go in my sense haha

    Hey, I know you're feeling pretty disheartened right now but please don't give up. As cliché as this is going to sound, there is a firm out there for you. These schemes/internship application processes are also a test of perseverance and you must remain hopeful and strong during times of adversity. Keep on practicing your numericals, it's long and boring but it will be worth it in the end. If you know you're confident with one area, focus on another. To improve your timing you need to put a little pressure on yourself during practice tests, try to work swiftly but thoroughly.

    You said you're not sure about which divisions to apply for and I can only advise that you choose roles that match your interests and your strongest skills. READ the descriptions given on the company website of what they're looking for and if you feel like you can tick the majority of the boxes then go for it.

    I feel as though higher education has conditioned a lot of us to feel like we don't match up to this "dream candidate" and we therefore restrict ourselves to where we apply and what we do because we are afraid. Fxck it, break free from the shackles and take a chance.

    At the end of the day all they can do is reject you... or not reply.
    Thanks for the heads-up and the camaraderie! Actually yesterday I did the CS numerical and ended up with 8 minutes spare at the last question, was so surprised haha. I hope you get what you want for next summer!

    Was told by HSBC that I "have not met the required criteria". Got a 2.1, 300 UCAS points etc. so anyone know what this could mean?
    I know some people who got to the HSBC AC last year both target unis (380 UCAS) and they got cut but they said all the females on the AC day got thru to the next round. Seems to be a push at HSBC to lift the female percentage which is fine but they felt like they wasted a day. They enjoyed the AC as it was good experience.
