    RBC rejection. Chances of SW now = nil.

    I'm out.

    Good luck with the rest of you applicants.
    Don't give up hope, chances are we'll all receive many rejections, it only takes 1 offer to get our foot in the door though

    I'd hope that your lowly estimations of RBC didn't come across in your application..

    Applying for summer positions, and I've been rejected by Nomura, RBC, CS and some offers.

    Yet, I've secured at least first rounds at MS, Barclays, Greenhill, Lazard.. Just wait it out before you give up hope.

    For you to be getting rejected this early in the cycle, you must be failing the tests and have something fairly dodgy on your application.

    I've only failed PwC and UBS logicals.

    Did you get SWs last year? I have ICAP AC but it's not looking to great.

    How do you know you didn't fail the others (i.e CS and RBC iirc?)

    Not all banks will explicitly say that 'your test marks did not meet their benchmark' when rejecting you. If you're rejected within two week, it's likely to be the tests.

    Yeah I did.

    But there was an option right?

    I haven't been given anything plus they ask in the competency questions why you picked that specific area

    For UBS they basically said I failed the tests, so I assume I didn't pass the benchmark on the logicals.

    The rest were like "Due to heavy volume of applications ....", albeit I don't know if that's based on tests.

    Buy the all in numerical pack at Canary Wharfian. There are other providers like AssessmentDay/GradMonkey but to be honest there's not much difference between them.

    Well when I see my application online (at the CS site) it says that my 2015 finance analyst spring insight has been rejected whereas my IB,Equities and Fixed Income spring analyst programme is still under review? I dont know maybe cuz of application volume at the IBD one its just gonna take a longer time for a rejection.

    Oh ****, you're right. Same here, but probably yeah, it would take a longer time for us to get our IBD rejection if we got rejected by Finance.
