You are given real/similar work of what the service line you applied to will entail. Like replying to emails, doing some numerical email responses and video responding to questions or scenarios.

Normally, there are no time limits. But make sure your answers are accurate; I'd recommend you complete it in 1 sitting.
VI: You are given information to analyse for up to 3-5 mins and after, you'll be required to give your video response.

You should revise on percentages like compound interest, percentage increase/decrease etc. As percentage questions are in every job simulation and numerical test.

No Problem; When does HSBC applications open?

Their website is quite confusing.

Think they’re open now. Worth scanning through anyway.

I completed the Job simulation 2 weeks ago but I'm still waiting on a response. I don't think I failed it as when I failed the EY job simulation I knew straight away. You are given data on various business cases and are asked to answer a mix of numerical questions based on them and questions relating to your ability to work in a team. You will be asked about how you will handle various situations and some responses will be given in a video interview format for which you will have around 2 minutes to prepare a response. It's pretty much the same as any other job simulation that the big 4/banks/investment firms will give you.

I can't remember the specific questions because it was so long ago. It was just general questions about how you would approach a situation that had been presented to you. They aren't too difficult to answer.

fair play, did the ask the 'why us/you/this position'? or where the video questions solely on information to do with the simulation?

just questions about the situations they give
do they ask any competency questions? is it just your response to the situation they present or do you need to draw on past experiences?
and do you happen to remmeber any of the situations they presented? sorry i'm really bad at speaking in video interviews and just trying to prepare as much as i can

its not like that, they'll ask you to questions based on information and you have to talk through ur answer. its not as daunting as it seems

It usually takes them 3 weeks to review job simulations. For 2021 intake they have changed immersive online assessment and job simulation - there are no more numerical questions as part of job simulation, but there are more written ones. If you need help preparing, I would highly recommend you to visit onlinegraduatetest(dot)com

They will get back to you in 3 weeks or a month. Since HSBC has cut a lot of staff and they are also calculating the benchmark for this year.
