    Do you book a time slot for the numeracy test or are you meant to be there for the full time? On my invite it says from 9 - 11 and be there at least 20 mins early. Does it mean I have to be there at 8.30??

    ...well clearly (by the fact that they've already allocated 9-11) you don't book a time slot,

    and no, 'be there 20 mins earlier' means you have to be there at 8.40, not 8.30.

    ...although i suppose it wouldnt do any harm!

    Fill in the survey, they may be able to reschedule a different interview for you.

    I think they explicitly say in the email that you should not call them for that matter.

    What HALe said. They explicitly ask you not to contact them in any way apart from the online survey (there's a section at the bottom where you can give your reason), and then they'll try to re-schedule your test for another time.

    Dude its 5 hours long. I'm pretty sure your networking will be tested to the max.

    Re-scheduled to the 12th? I wonder how many they're holding.

    I'm pretty lucky I got invited for the 16th since I have an exam on the 12th, 14th and 15th, then the 24th lol. Couldn't have got a better date.

    11:00-13:00 is two hours last time I checked. You've got me questioning my numerical ability now, you swine. 30 minutes for them to reiterate the instructions and 90 minutes to do the test sounds reasonable. It also only states 'you may meet some bank representatives' as the reason for the dress code so hopefully that bullet can be dodged.

    EDIT: I know of three so far, 9th, 12th and 16th.

    and are the online shl tests good enough to practice for the 'harder' paper based tests

    have a go on the efinancialcareers tests - slightly more tedious and trickier.
