    I think UBS are giving out rejections already, some people have said they've got them after doing the tests.
    I reckon those are auto rejections if you don't reach a certain score in the test.

    Why not? If so, why are you applying to any other banks?

    BAML,GS,UBS start looking at apps after the deadline - and I think none of them interview (but could be wrong about that).

    CS have sent out telephone interviews to some

    No idea what Nomura are doing, they haven't even sent me a test and it's been almost 6 weeks since applying there. But I don't think they've sent out any interviews.
    Would I be right in saying the BOAML's insight programme is a general one, or do you pick a specific division? Their application service is playing up atm, so I can't register, will try in the morning. I haven't heard from Nomura either btw.

    I can't remember, maybe someone else knows? The BAML site has pretty much stopped working for me on Safari/Chrome/Firefox

    Yes same here. I spent way too long on one question and when I finally thought I got it, my answer was different to the options. Happened another time. The rest were okay I think.

    You kind of take the extra time they give for granted when in fact, you need those extra few minutes when converting multiple currencies and Gallons to litres etc. Was so cumbersome

    Should I expect technical question during an interview (DCF and stuff)? The reason I am asking is that we did not have any of the technical aspects at Uni so far...

    Thanks

    Very unlikely for spring weeks, unless you've put something on your CV which gives the impression that you should know some technicals, either through your education, experience or interests.

    How do you know if you have failed averbal reasoning test for Barcap or Credit Suisse?

    Do you get an instant rejection? For Barcap i passed the numerical and got a nice congratzz letter and an invitation to their verbal, then after the verbal: Thank you for taking the time to complete the online tests. Your application is under review and we will let you know the status of your application shortly.- is that a pass or fail?

    For CS after verbal i just got an invitation to their numerical and nothing more.
