    rejection from MS (don't know why) and Nomura (failed the 2nd test), interview for ICAP
    Just did the 2nd test for Nomura and that was tough as nails!

    Pretty sure I failed it too.

    For those people who did MS and CS's numerical test how hard are those compared to assesmentday.co.uk?

    Thank you for completing the final online test. Your results have been captured and your application to Nomura has been submitted. We appreciate the time you have taken to complete the application and tests.

    We will be reviewing your qualifications and experience in relation to the role you have applied to and will be in contact with you in the coming weeks.

    This is the email I got on the 2nd September. Does it mean I passed the second Nomura test (logical reasoning.) Appearently according to many of yous, it was insanely hard, I found it easier than the first one.

    A lot easier than tests on AD imo.

    For MS, the only spring insights are for Technology and the Institutional securities group. ISG says the division is sales and trading - what about IBD?

    Also, anyone done the Rothschild tests? Do you get an automatic rejection if failed, did them yesterday haven't heard back anything....

    I'd say slightly easier, but probably about the same level. Also less time pressured, though it still felt rushed

    I've done the whole application for HSBC, but seem to be missing this inside joke :/

    Could anyone explain?

    EDIT* Never mind, just remembered it. Was a pretty annoying one to say the least!
