    We can confirm that you have completed the required online assessment. Your application will now be reviewed by a member of the Campus Recruitment team who will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. However, please note that due to the high volume of applications received it can take a little time to hear back from us.

    Is it really that hard for Barclays to say yes you have passed? did anyone else get this

    I think the issue with saying something like "you've passed" is it gives the impression the applicant has been successful to some degree. When the majority of people who pass the tests are going to get rejected after anyway, it does make sense for the message to be relatively conservative.

    I assume so. I was rejected straight after Barclays' tests for summer (and then unrejected 3 weeks later) so it's safe to say you've passed the test benchmark, I'd have thought.

    Yes. I was rejected immediately post-tests and then three weeks later was asked to do a phone interview... :lol:

    I did the tests relatively early (within a week or so of them opening applications) so I assume they just set the benchmark too high, since there's no other reason I can think of for them to be looking around those they auto-rejected.

    So if you're not rejected immediately that means you've passed the online assessments ?

    For summer/grad combined I think I saw the figures "105,000 applicants for approx. 900 positions" floating around. I don't know how true that is, or how that compared to spring week applications though.

    Not quite the same but Morgan Stanley Summer Analyst had 1,000 places globally and 90,000 applications last year.
