    what do you guys think you got roughly on the barcap numerical? ive not doone it yet
    Hmmm, I definitely guessed one question midway through but there was also a question I'd done before. Maybe 15 or 16 if I allow for some errors which were probably present

    Yep, got both of those, I presumed I'd get results to the Verbal straight after I completed it considering they gave the Numerical results but we have to play the waiting game.

    Did anybody fail the Barcap numerical ?
    I know of one person who did.

    I reckon I got full marks, but at least 2 wrong on the verbal.

    Is there any point in applying for things like the ICAP one-day insights?

    I mean, I presume most of us are applying so that we then have a decent shot at getting a 2nd year internship and then after that a job. Don't think from one-day they really gonna let you do that.

    Yes they should give a link to numerical tests straight after submitting the application

    Sorry I know there are posts about HSBC earlier on but they seems to contradict... I've just applied and got an email saying my application is under consideration. Some of you earlier mentioned an instant rejection/personality test - how long did you have to wait for the next email?

    Thanks!

    Still something that shows you've made it through, aka you had to be good to be selected, thus signaling your ability in that. Hence why the industry likes brand names on a CV, a faster way of screening people.

    As it turns out I applied to the wrong one and it's likely the same with the others who were rejected after the personality test too.

    I applied to their Summer Internship programme for retail banking and just found the form for their Spring Insight application.

    EDIT: Neg...seriously?

    I'm wondering this as well. 500 words will be a lot to read for them and we're first year students, not PWC.

    haha yeah, this was funny

    i wrote 250 words proper and concisely cutting out so much extra stuff i could have put in

    and then went to paste and realised its 500 words!

    so i added about a 100 extra and submitted 350

    Is this in the Summer though? Says "It takes place at the same time that our summer interns join us" so not a Spring week.
