    Where else have people applied to?

    Need to apply to HSBC and possibly ICAP if the deadline hasn't passed for either of them.

    Does anybody know what the "General" sub-division is for the GS IB division? I'm interested in their ECM part of the Finance sub-division and their main IB sub-division so I'd like to take a look at both if that's what this means?

    I tried contacting their campus recruiting team but they didn't answer my question properly.

    Ouch, both of the RBS tests were vastly harder than any other I've done so far.

    Well they're definitely not doing well.

    "How do we differentiate ourselves from our competitors?" Err, how about you kinda suck a lot.

    Are they logical and numerical tests?

    How are they much harder than shl is it the time limit or the actual calculations you need to do?

    The logical test is a complete mind-****. As I said, if I got like 2 correct I'd be happy.

    The numerical test wasn't that bad but I messed up a little. It was harder than the SHL though. It's 'cause they only give you a certain amount of time per question so the easy ones you get in seconds but then the harder ones you still only have the same amount of time.

    Heya, sorry for being stupid, but does anyone have the direct link to the BOAML application (granted if it has not yet passed). Have yet to apply to RBS, BOAML, DB and BNPP.

    Would appreciate it! Cheers

    Anyone else got one? Hmm, probably didn't do so well but enough for them to want another look maybe?

    Edit: GBM Markets.

    I think there really is a possibility that they DON'T HAVE tests.

    I've heard very little from the places I applied to 3 weeks ago. In fact only have had interviews or scheduled interviews for places I applied to exactly a month ago.
