Hi,

Has anyone done the AC at BNP for Structuring & Trading and know what to expect? Mainly the stuff about exchange rates they ask for and if there any case studies which we need to prepare for? Also what type of maths do they expect you to do? Is it just the things you do in numerical reasoning? I have mine next week

Thank you

Yeah I had it, it's very informal so nothing to worry about. Just revise non-calculator GCSE Maths (will be different for every AC) and how to convert Exchange Rates. Interviews were casual, but it's a lottery of what questions you get. Some people get brainteasers etc., others more technical questions. Mostly these questions go on the fly rather than pre-prepared. No competency questions so forget those

No! It's very strange they are still receiving applications and have extended the deadline for applications several times. Either they did not find enough suitable participants to organize an AC, or they are unsure about the near prospects of the bank because of Brexit. Trading is execution as opposed to other roles for Graduates which are already filled.

I did eventually get rejected in the end. Though I thought I nailed the interview. Literally no idea what to expect them to do. Good luck anyway

Hey, hope the AC went well!

What sort of stuff did they ask you in your group exercises/what is the best thing I can do to prep?

Sorry for the delay in replying mate. There are no video interviews. The first stage after online tests was a so called "pre-assessment centre". In that case you do interviews and more tests.

A lot of my friends didn't hear back after doing the tests. Part of me thinks that they have some technical issues, as they did with recording the online tests. I did them like three or four times before they got submitted.
