    Now the question is, do we get an automatic rejection if we dont meet the minimum pass mark or do they wait and assess as a whole?

    Pretty sure all banks give an automatic rejection within 48 hours if you fail the test.

    I think UBS got rid of the logical test this year, probably because people kept failing it.

    Does anyone know what BlackRock's 'virtual cover letter invitation' is about? It doesn't seem to be a link to upload a cover letter because when I sign in, it has a button with 'Start Interview' on it? What is this? Is this a video interview? If so, why is even called a 'virtual cover letter'?

    I was highly confused as well.

    I think its similar to a fit based interview via video.

    Which divisions did you apply to ?

    What do you guys think of the competitiveness for grad roles in risk or ops for BB/MM? Is it like for FO where its practically impossible to get a grad position as they've hired most people already from summers or do you have a chance if you have a decent uni and work experience?
    anyone got info on this?
