    They could really improve the application system by letting us know the test scores. Saves a lot of time waiting around for further progress thinking you've done well in case you haven't.

    Barcap's pretty good in that it lets you know you've passed the numerical to get to the verbal test.

    hm to be honest I think JP's system is better because barcap's is flawed for obvious reasons!

    I spoke to my cousin about this. He works for J.P in M&A. He said that you need pretty much 100% but even that won't guarantee you an interview with the firm

    i'm pretty sure i got 100% in the tests (not trying to sound up myself lols). But my a-levels were pretty poor for IB standard. Guess that let me down. Will need to try get feedback if possible

    I dunno, maybe. I'm quite sure I've got 100% in all the numericals I've taken except MS maybe (without sounding like a ****, I'm studying maths, if I can't do simple ratios and stuff there isn't much chance of me doing well in my degree).

    But reading back my answer to their "Why JPM" question, I wouldn't be surprised if a child wrote it.

    Regardless, good luck to all those with interviews and I'm sure the majority of people on this thread will get something somewhere.

    As for the trolls, you may have offers/interviews but unfortunately your word counts for so little on here that it's a bit pointless posting on here.

    Do they use the same numerical tests for SWs, Summer Internships and Graduate Positions? Does anybody know? Just seems strange to me that they'd expect 100% at a 1st year and a graduate level if that's the case.

    Did you not do any SW last year?
    Nope; i got rejected from all without interview (applied to 10 minus BNP and UBS).

    In response to those saying that you need 100% in the numericals to get an interview; i usually finish the numericals in 12 minutes, then realise that i messed up 1 or 2 questions; and i have an interview with JPMorgan, so....

    Yes; they're the same; it will be the same pass mark at all levels (for the same division; ie: operations and IBD are likely to be slightly different), as it is only GCSE level maths anyway, and it won't be 100% in most cases.

    Did you get any feedback from them? You've done well since then in securing a GS Internship. Congrats

    No; i think my cover letter writing style was a bit off, and my CV wasn't as good as it is now. It's so competitive that little things can sway all your applications. Luckily summer internship firms don't care too much about applicants having spring internships so i've been able to do well this year.
