Barclays Tests

Barclays is a British banking organisation that offers personal and corporate banking as well as wealth and investment management. Established more than 300 years ago with headquarters in London, Barclays operates in 50 countries and employs more than 85,000 people worldwide.

Business Insight Stage 2

If you are not successful in the first stage, you will be provided with constructive strengths-based feedback that you can use to help you perform better in the future. If you are successful, you will be invited to take part in the Business Insight Stage 2 assessment.

This is structured in a similar way to the first stage, with a realistic scenario with different situational, numerical, verbal and critical reasoning questions – but this time a bit more in-depth. The situation itself is more likely to reflect the type of work that you will be undertaking in the role you have applied for.

The stage 2 assessment has different question types, and answers might be given through multiple-choice options and via video. This assessment is timed, and usually takes 45 minutes.

Barclays Business Meeting

If you are successful with the remote assessments, you will be invited to the Barclays Business Meeting. This is an in-house immersive challenge lasting 3.5 to 5 hours, similar to an assessment centre, and will involve a case study exercise.

The Barclays Business Meeting allows you to showcase the skills and knowledge that you have, as well as demonstrating the six key traits that Barclays seeks in new employees.

If you take full advantage of immersing yourself into the business meeting scenario, you can get the most out of it.

If you are unsuccessful at this stage, you will be offered constructive feedback in the form of a personalised report. You might also be offered a feedback coaching call to discuss in detail the areas you can improve.

If you are successful you will find out almost immediately.

    Great Practice

    Decent brain teasers and a useful practice session ahead of the actual cognitive assessment on Barclays International

    A little more time

    I understand the reasons for keeping time short but that just makes people randomly mark a decent number of questions which brings a chance element in. Maybe negative marks for incorrect answers would help

    There are a few trick questions as the order of things is changed

    if you take time to read through and do the calc slow its easy to get it right, but under pressure you can easily misread what is being asked, or figure how to calculate it. some cases the answer they want is an approximation of the correct answer mathematically.

    Too much calculation

    The calculation was too much than the time allowed for. I liked the fact that it involved statistics related to the job I picked from the start.

    Good & Challenging

    It covers confusing questions but all of them are true, false and cannot tell. Not sure if this will be the case during the real tests.
