    True! It does sound like he had a rough time though, I can imagine being pretty pissed off at being shouted at for somebody else's mistakes. I think it comes as a bit of a shock because all banks portray this bull**** about their 'team' culture where everything's rosey but really there's a massive hierarchy.
    yeh he must have been having a really ****ty time there.

    No idea man. You have to pass it to get to the verbal though and usually you should be told straight away after the test. I think in that test I got at most 2 wrong.

    But I think they use a different pass mark to get to the interview stage.

    I'd take a guess that if you get 3-4 wrong, you should be fine. They tell you if you passed instantly though
    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL, I completely messed up BarCap's numerical and yet somehow got to the verbal stage? It was the hardest numerical that I've done so far and I got loads of weird questions (ended up guessing like 6 of them 'cos they were really weird) but I somehow got the minimum pass mark.

    Was genuinely convinced that I wouldn't progress past it! :confused:

    Yeh, similar to me. I knew i got a few wrong but was hoping it would still be enough. How was the verbal? That test really ***** me up but I'm still hoping a similar miracle to the numerical will occur.

    if i'm not mistaken, was it awards and PoR? If so i just put down awards given at school and uni and the positions of responsibility i hold on various committees.

    Haven't taken the verbal yet! I'm usually good with verbals, so I'm not stressing too much...

    A former analyst/associate at JP talking to a friend of mine said when he was there applications got given at random to analysts who gave them thumbs up thumbs down for interview based on whatever criteria they decided--mainly CV and a little look at the cover letter. Sounds a bit haphazard, maybe it's changed in the past couple years.
