    Gonna do it tomorrow, but given the fact they say in the email it's gonna take 15 min, I assume it's still TalentQ

    btw, BofA is still not open or am I missing something?
    BAML still not open. Checked a few hours ago.

    Had an interview with Blackstone today to work part time around uni this year but won't know of the outcome till late next week and probs wouldn't be starting until 3 weeks. Should I hold off submitting any apps another week so I can at least write down will be working part time at BX part time this year starting from XXX?

    Also Have any of you heard anything back from CS after sitting the test or does it mean we have passed?

    Cheers!

    I'd probably wait as well - good luck with the result! I do hope you realise, however, that working part time at Blackstone would probably mean that there is a very decent chance of falling behind on uni, as I doubt they would be as considerate about your academic progress as they would about your tasks.... I am also surprised that they offer part-time work.

    I'm sure it is but people here have taken three hours on it and still got through so I genuinely don't think it matters...

    Not sure I dont think anyone has heard back yet, how did you find it? how many questions did you have to do in how many minutes, was it a standard 20 mins 20 qs?
    How long after sending off the app, do DB take to invite for tests?

    Each question is timed rather than the entire test, different format and stuff but there are couple of free practice ones that you could do to familiarise yourself mate

    Generally within 48 hours, except for Barclays. Not sure what they are doing.

    said this before, could be weeks if they want it to. they review your app before sending test and they also review different divisions and roles at different times. they only opened a week ago, may not even be reviewing any apps for your role for example.. it literally took 2-3 weeks for some tests to come through last year

    I contacted the HR, I'll let you know as soon as they reply!
    Did you manage to sort this out? I'm having the same problem, I can't use the email I used to apply for spring weeks last year.
