    Anyone know how long the morgan stanley numerical takes to come through? Website says we only have 48 hours to complete
    They'll reject you pretty quickly, don't worry.

    How did you apply to Barclays? It is not letting me apply, it says it doesn't open until November 1st (obviously this has passed) but there is no option to apply?

    Yeah there is (admittedly a little late), just go to apply and then select 'Analyst' -> 'Spring Insight'

    rbs LOL

    On a side note, does anyone know for a fact whether there is such a thing as pass rate on applications, or the higher you score the better your chances? Or it doesnt make a difference?

    Hey guys,
    Barclays requires a numerical test, am I right? Because I did receive an email confirming my application, still I have no invite to the online assessment which seems kinda strange to me.
    Have any of you done a test for Barclays??

    Hi guys,

    If any of you are doing a four year course with a optional one year master and thus went for a spring week in your first year. And if you then converted the spring to summer did you put that on your CV when applying for spring weeks again during your second year? Of course it's a merit but I was thinking that the recruiters would question you loyalty. Thank you for answers

    With the hsbc competency question regarding why the firm why the programme did you talk about why all the business areas or just a one. For example global banking and markets?

    Many thanks and your help will be much appreciated
