    Yes to all your questions.
    Thanks! Just a last question: I am a little bit confused whether I applied to the right program. CS calls it Spring Insight but the position I applied for is called Analyst ... So is did I really apply for spring week? ^^

    To people who sent off a Credit Suisse application, as soon as you submitted your application were you asked to complete a verbal test within two days?
    Yup, and a numerical one as well - that appears after the verbal.

    Hey guys, for all you people that applied to Barclays, I took the numeracy, got an email saying I passed it so took the verbal and have so far received nothing else. Anyone else in the same position?

    For all those who have PM'ed me about posting some things I was asked in the JPM interview - I would like to point out a few things. Firstly when I was interviewed there were 8 other people being interviewed. I spoke to them during the break and at the end of the day and they were all interviewed by different people - they have many different interviewers. Also they were all asked completely different questions - so the odds of you guys being asked what I was aksed is very very low indeed.

    Also interviews next week for IBD are at a different place - a different JP mogran- they are at citypoint - this is a different office and so increases the chances of different questions even more - since the people who interviewed me were based in the office I travelled too.

    Many people still don't seem to realise these interviews are not by HR -who have a set list of questions they ask - these interviews are by associates / VP etc who ask what the hell they want. For example they steer the direction of the conversation - and they do not have to ask any specific questions - for example in one of my interviews we discussed -I know this will sound ridiculous - we talked about whether aliens exists - this is a perfect example of how they ask what they want.

    To sum it - the interviews are unpredictable - it is not like a cambridge interview where they have a set list of questions - they do what they want at JP.

    Citi test invite. I know it's been briefly discussed that you're timed per question and it gets harder/easier depending on if you get it right, but what are the actual questions like? Are they similar to SHL's?

    Sorry I can't help with the questions (sure someone else on here will)

    But how did you find out about the CS interview - did they call or email?

    Okay this is weird. I applied to Barcap last night. Got a phone call at 10:30 AM for an impromptu telephone interview and then invitation to AC. Very odd indeed.

    Wouldn't lie to you. Don't see the point. Its bizarre... I am applying for technology though so maybe application rates are way down?

    Hi,

    I've had my interview yesterday. The interview was not done by HR personnel but rather employee from a particular department you applied to. It was more of a casual talk where she introduced herself to me, follow by mine introduction. There wasn't any specific question she set out. Just question on my background, why i choose CS and some intuitive questions.

    RBS logic test was very difficult.
    Do you know if you every had to click "submit" for each answer?
    As in, I would click on my selection so it filled in the ? box on the grid, but never clicked submit, let it just time out. Will that still record my selection?

    And was it one of those ones that adjusts question difficulty according to how you are doing. Like they would get harder and harder, then I'd get one wrong and it would become easier again, then get harder and harder, etc.
    Aghh that was not fun
