    Just did Barclays insight 2. Found it really tough, not what I was expecting... Oh well
    What does it consist of? What do they ask you? Is it like a video interview where they ask competency based questions? Or is it more like situational judgement type questions? *

    I just got invited to do the online interview after completing the business insight test 1. Email is below. Is this similar to business insight test 2?

    does anyone have any specifics like what they would ask you for the recorded interview? Why Barclays? or something similar?
    I am pleased to inform you that following your application for 2017 Corporate Banking Graduate - ********, we would like to find out more about you, what motivates you and how you align to the Barclays Values and Capabilities.

    Insight 1 is untimed and focuses on situational judgement and numerical questions.

    Insight 2 has two parts. The first part is similar to Insight 1 but is instead timed. The second part requires you to record video responses to situational questions.
    Hi, hope you do well on your business insight stage 2! Could you please tell me what kind of question will be asked in the recording part? is it like self introduction or competency based question to show our own experience? or like sjt questions? thanks for sharing!

    I completed business insight stage 1, 9 days ago and I got my feedback report emailed to me 7 days ago but have not gotten any telling me whether I am through to the next round I also haven't gotten any email inviting me to complete business insight assessment stage 2. Yet some people here have been invited to business stage insight assessment 2

    I am wondering whether this means I am not through to business insight assessment stage 2 and they just haven't told me this/ haven't sent a rejection email

    The feedback report email said
    *
    "Thanks for completing the Business Insight assessment as part of the Barclays recruitment process. Regardless of whether you are successful in the recruitment process, we would like to take the opportunity to give you developmental feedback on your performance. Please see attached your candidate development report, with practical development suggestions on your results."

    So the fact that it says "regardless of whether you are successful in the the recruitment process", I'm wondering whether this means that I'm not through to the next round but they are sending me my business insight assessment stage 1 feedback report because they are obliged to do so.

    What does anyone here think regarding this?

    Do you think this could be the case?

    Check the above posts, some users and I also had a similar situation and we got insight stage 2 a week or two after we got the feedback report. Might be something with their system - not as automatic as we think.
