    Hi,

    I have completed all of my online tests today for my RBS application today, I would like to ask anyone who has heard back from RBS after having completed the online tests, how long did it take for you to hear back from them about whether you had been invited for a telephone interview?

    I got an invite for each following test one day after completing the previous one
    (i.e. invite to take Cosmic Cadet game after submitting SJT, invite to take Numerical Test after submitting Cosmic Cadet and invite to take Logical Test after submitting Numerical Test).

    I hope that it will also take a very short time for me to find out whether I am invited to an interview.

    Thanks

    Thanks for letting me know. I have received an email from RBS this morning saying the following

    "Thank you again for your application to The Royal Bank of Scotland Graduate Programme in Communications & Marketing.

    We appreciate that you have been waiting to hear further news about the progress of your application, so we are writing to update you.

    We have received a large number of high quality applications for the programme and will complete further benchmarking before finalising whether we will invite you to the next stage.

    We’ll contact you in due course to let you know what will happen next.
    We would like to thank you for your understanding so far, and apologise for the delay. "

    I am guessing you did not receive the same email if you received your interview invitation only 2 days after completing the online tests or did you also happen to receive the same email?

    I hope that receiving this email does not mean that it could take me a while to hear back regarding whether I will be invited to an interview.

    I didn't receive that email. Then again, I didn't apply for the graduate programme.

    I applied for the Female Leaders Insight Week (I'm a 1st year). It must be different waiting times for different programmes then.

    Hi there, I also applied for the Female Leaders Insight Week. So far I've passed the interview and I am now waiting for a response. It's been over two weeks..
    I hope you don't mind me asking but what stage are you at with your application? Also do you by any chance know when the dates are for the Insight Week?

    All the insight weeks are 10-13/4/4

    They will definitely accept you as pretty much no-one applied - don't worry
