In short said that they’re very interested in my application and have been shortlisted for the upcoming acs but to be patient as they are processing applications - very generic (was from the same email you receive the benchmark email, not the host grad team)

In truth I think I got it as I’m a “average candidate” so I’ll be invited after the higher scorers if that makes sense lol
hii when did u both do the job simulation and when did u hear u passed

Hey guys!So I passed the immersive test and now have the job simulation. Any tips as to how to proceed with the preparation and I’ve heard that the questions are very division specific. Could you please help me out?

It’s actually quite straightforward. Make sure you prefer options which are more team based and some options where you are proactive. Never too independent. Numericals are straightforward as well. My report showed weakness in numericals but I still made it through so shouldn’t be a hassle.

For those that may find it helpful, (for the third time in a row) I failed. This was after the job immersion assessment, can't seem to pass them...

Dear Leader,
We would like to thank you for completing the Job Simulation as part of your HSBC application to the position of Markets & Securities Services - Quantitative Finance - Full-Time Associate Programme (UK - London).
In order to gain a full understanding of the meaning of your test results, your performance has been compared to that of a large group of individuals who have previously completed these tests when applying for a Graduate / Internship role at HSBC Global Businesses.
It is with regret that we must advise you that unfortunately you have not been successful in meeting our requirements. Regrettably it is not possible to provide individual feedback due to the high number of applications we receive. We trust, however, that the Feedback Report following the completion of the Online Immersive Assessment, giving you some insight into how you can work on your highest and lowest scoring attributes, has been useful.
If you could spare a few moments, we would be really keen to hear your feedback on the Job Simulation, as well as your HSBC journey to date. We would therefore ask that, if you have time, you complete our survey by clicking the link below:
