    FYI, just done HSBC phone interview. Very basic competencies and motivation. Interview last around 15mins. They sent me an email 30mins after that I met the minimum requirements, and wait for further reviews.

    Doing my Nomura test, clicked on next question half way through and the screen went blank and says IBM. Any ideas what I should do?

    I've now got error code 00003, wonderful

    What happened after this ?

    Same thing happened to me, emailed them. They havent responded, but then I received an automated rejection!

    Do you have a contact at Nomura ?

    Yeah I did it like an hour ago. Yeah I thought it was alright, the difficulty kept increasing but it seemed okay. Really annoying with all the scrolling and the amount of useless information though

    How did you find it?

    Just did the test like an hour ago. Out of 12 questions: 4 definitely wrong (2 ran out of time, 2 plugged in the wrong numbers), 6 probably right (probably), of the 2 left I have no memory whatsoever what I managed to accomplish :P

    So yeah, now im quite emotionally drained to get myself to do anything else today!

    Nothing has happened. I can no longer access the test but they haven't rejected me. I haven't heard back yet.

    I have emailed them on an address that was in the FAQs on "what to do if you encounter a test problem". If I don't get a reply in two days, then I have the email of the IBD Recruiter who I will go to for escalation. PM me and I will send you the addresses.

    So frustrating, their application took me ages and I was doing well on the test. So bizarre for the screen just to go blank like that mid-way through.

    Guys, so confused.

    I just got an email from Citi. I applied SA, FT and OC. They said they cannot accept my SA or FT application because my OC one has "already been processed" even though on the website it says you can apply for more than one role.

    Anyone else had this?
