    I think it might differ quite a lot from bank to bank because some tests kill the mind whilst others are relatively straight forward. I think RBS test has a pretty low pass mark because it's pretty difficult.
    Yeah of course its just a generalisation

    Let's hope it's true! I would love for the pass marks to be ~70%. That would mean out of say 20 questions you can get away with getting 6 wrong!

    Its tough getting these applications in whilst looking for something for the summer as well. Double the applications to make. I know its not vital but it will be a huge bonus. Hoping to find anything relevant in finance tbh.

    The tests don't mean a huge amount when you can get up to the top end (a good score doesn't get you an interview, whereas a bad score will lose you an interview). I finished my BarCap test with 100% using 10 minutes out of 18 for summer internships this year, and i got rejected 2 weeks later.
    Ye I know the tests dont mean much - but I have a very strong application - ive heard deutche bank only let 10 people in for the spring week which is ridiculous.

    Ive done jp morgan - was quite simple - pushed a bit for time,

    MS is by far one of the easiest so far,

    UBS was quite easy too.

    Havent had goldman sachs' ones yet

    Deuthce bank i found easiest - but got rejected lol

    Does any1 know whether citibank and bank of america have numerical tests?

    Yes I am, and I know they dont. You just have to look around Boutiques and other small advisory firms etc.

    HSBC do an "initial screening" before inviting you for a test. Not sure what it involves, but it took 3 weeks approx before the sent me the test.

    Finally applied to RBS. Don't think I'll bother with BNPP so that means applications are done and the only thing left to do is wait.
