    They just give you a copy of the FT. You pick three stories and then have to explain in an interview with a senior banker why they interested you, it's impact on Citi and the impact on your division / economy. You get 15 mins to prepare.

    Cheers. I'm guessing it's the copy of the FT on that day? I've had another interview where I've been given a copy of the FT dating back to the early 2000's.

    Last year I had mine with an Associate and it was probably the most chilled out interview I'd ever had. He just asked me a few basic questions and then we had a conversation about what he did, his job, MS, how he found it etc. with a few other basic questions interweaved like "how do I know you're not going to leave for PE?" etc. After this I was invited for two more interviews at their offices and then there was an AC after that which contains three more interviews. Might be different this year though.

    Similar format to the others, like SHL. Sometimes you need more calculations or they phrase the question weirdly. I found the last couple of questions not so easy but the rest was fine.

    My connection went down during the (brutal) Citi test, so I didn't answer some questions .-." Any chance that HR could reset it?
