    That doesn't make sense? Try calling them and asking about it, they may have sent the email to the wrong person if possible.

    Hey guys! Just got an email from HSBC telling me that the reason why I did not get through to the Telephone Interview Stage was because my score in the online assessment stage was not good enough. Any of you know what the online assessment stage entailed exactly? I only took a survey they sent around a few months ago about where I would like to work etc. (and I thought that couldn't possibly have been the assessment?) Thanks xx

    The online assessment was the list of questions where you basically said what your work ethic was like, I thinkkk (correct me if I'm wrong though)

    I emailed them about this and they said that they would be alright with me emailing the school form after easter as long as the other forms were returned by the deadline given. Hope that helps!

    This method seems long but I printed them, signed them then took a picture on my phone of them all. I sent the pictures of the signed forms to myself and saved them onto my laptop. Then from my laptop, I emailed the images to HSBC.
