    Hi! Thanks for the suggestion!
    Do you have any idea how long I'm gonna wait for them to process the credit suisse duplicate account issue? It's not early for the front office application, so I'm a bit concerned..
    I emailed them 3 days after i submitted. Reply was along the lines "reading closely is one of the core skils needed" (as it said I should be patient and not email them.) After 2 weeks the status changed.

    Hey folks, I took BAML's SJT around the 20th. Does anyone know if they let you know right away if you fail?

    I waited 7 days before emailing them. They fixed it for me straight away but I know a lot of people were basically told to **** off.

    Yes. You do a paper-based version which is slightly harder and must score 80% or above (16 out of 20) or you get sent home.

    First round interview UBS IBD. It should be competency based, any tips?
    When did you apply may I ask? Did you just receive the interview invite?

    haha really? So you start with a paper-based version and they just send you home if you fail? So people flying in from abroad will just have wasted their time if they fail

    Yes, some people were sent home before 9am. You must meet the minimum benchmark, no exceptions. It's the first thing you do when you arrive.

    Yes, last year for IBD. Got 15 out of 20 and not 16 and was sent home so this is how I know because HR told me what the benchmark was. Another batch get sent home before lunch as well.

    I've seen at places before like Citi where they give you another chance if you don't get the same score first time round. But at HSBC you just get shown the door.

    No idea if it'll be the same this cycle or for other divisions. The AC I went to was just for IBD.

    This was for the Numerical (which they've scrapped this year) and I doubt they'll make you sit an SJT again, but maybe the Inductive Reasoning one.

    Yeah that's exactly what I thought. Doing an SJT again would be pretty stange, and it said in the Email they sent to me that you would undergo a situational exercise. Do you remember if it said directly in your mail that there would be a paper-based test?
