    I needed some opinions, I made a minor mistake in one of my cover letters- wrote British airways instead of British Airways (A capital).

    Will this be a deal breaker or is it minute enough ?
    issue has got me stressed

    Given they spend so little time on these and will be half asleep, highly likely they will not notice.

    Thanks for this
    When did you finish your tests ? It has been a month for me now
    I cannot help but think this is a bad sign as I thought they recruit on a rolling basis
    Around a week ago, still yet to hear back also. I was talking to someone on here earlier who heard back from Morgan Stanley a month after applying so don't give up hope!

    Yes. 18q - 25 min
    Was this for the Project Consulting and Business Intelligence (PCBI) Graduate Program or another Graduate Program?

    I am asking this because I received an invite to complete the test for the UBS's PCBI program yesterday and in the invite email it says "Estimated completion time 45 Minutes", yet the practice SHL online assessment which is provided in the link given in the email is 18 questions and 25 minutes?

    So I am a bit confused regarding this.

    Was 18 questions 25 minutes for practice test or the real test or both?

    Did your invitation email also say "Estimated completion time 45 minutes"?

    Also, are the questions in the practice test generally similar to those in the real test?

    Thanks in advance

    They say allow 45 mins because they include 25 mins for doing the test, plus the practice questions before the real test and to read all the instructions.

    Thanks for letting me know

    Did you happen to take the practice SHL online assessment which is provided in the link given in the invite email?

    If you did, I wanted to ask whether the questions in that practice test are generally similar to those in the real test?

    Similar format, yes. You might find the actual test slightly more difficult.

    Last year I applied In Sep-Oct, heard back from end of October to end of December, even some rejections in January, February. So be patient, a quick reply is a good sign but if you don't hear back immediately it doesn't mean you are out of the race.
