    Finally started sending off applications! Do you automatically get put through to the next half of BoAML application if you pass the numerical test? Is it Kenexa style?

    Did you pass then? How are your applications going? I feel a little inconsistent with some of the numerical tests, so I'm going to give myself a bit more practice before sitting the actual thing.

    Yeah, it was fairly straight forward.

    I've sent most bar BarCap GS and DB

    rejection from CS for finance (IBD no response yet), UBS and RBC

    AC invite to ICAP only so far. Sent most last week.

    That's not too bad, I'm finding that my practice results for the numerical tests can vary from 60%-90%, it's not very good

    How many practices did you do to get to that average?

    Just re-run SHL & Kenexa a couple times to get a feel of the sorts of questions. The question styles are nearly always the same across the different tests, there's just different numbers involved. Infact some of the calculations are the exact same, so you just remember the correct answer from previous test.

    Would you say the ones on assessmentday are more difficult than the ones in the actual tests? I tend to over think the simplest thing because I've not done maths this basic in years.

    Okay, thanks. I'm going to give myself a few more days practice before completing it and sending off the majority of my applications. Just need to fill in the motivation questions and attach my CV before being able to send off BlackRock. HSBC, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, UBS, Deutsche Bank, PwC, Rothschild and then getting a few more ready.

    Best of luck with all your applications.

    Does anyone know if hsbc uses to check your application (cv and cover) before sending to you the test invitation or it goes automatically after u have submitted it? It would be useful to know in order to definitely get an idea on the value of your cv and cover letter's style
