HSBC Psychometric Tests

Psychometric tests are a key component of HSBC ’s Application Process. Candidate applying for the HSBC Graduate Programme are typically required to take Situational Judgement Test, Verbal Reasoning Test, Numerical Reasoning Test, Diagrammatic/ Logical Reasoning Test and Online Simulation Case Study.

HSBC Situational Judgement Tests

The HSBC Situational Judgment Test is a set of questions assessing how you might react to hypothetical events and situations that might be encountered in the HSBC ’s workplace environment. Based on your answers to these questions it will be verified how aligned you are with HSBC’s values and behaviors. So do your research and try to memorize them by heart ( might come in handy in the future!).

The tests were well suited to the job that I’ve applied for. They are easy to do and loads of them.

HSBC Behavioural Tests

The HSBC Behavioural Test is designed to find out what guides your moral decisions, what values are important in your life, and if any. Essentially, this is how the employers find out your true colors.You will be presented with a number of possible scenarios that might occur in any of the HSBC departments and expected to provide sound, written responses.

HSBC Verbal Reasoning Tests

The HSBC Verbal Reasoning Test comprises a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read fastly and a set of questions matching the information provided in paragraphs. Your answer options will be True, False or Cannot Tell.

HSBC Numerical Reasoning Tests

The multiple – choice HSBC Numerical Test assesses your ability to evaluate, analyze, and interpret numerical information that will be provided to you in charts, graphs, and tables. You will have limited time to find a correct answer, so all the calculations like percentages, ratios, and basic arithmetic should be executed quickly and accurately.

HSBC Diagrammatic / Logical Reasoning Tests

HSBC’s diagrammatic and logical reasoning tests will assess your sequence and pattern identification skills, logical thinking and ability to approach a problem and how good you are at solving it. But be careful – it’s easier said than done. You have a limited time to do it – a minute or less per question. The difficulty of questions is also likely to increase gradually. Therefore, good timing is vital.

HSBC Case Study/ Online Simulation

Should you be successful with the HSBC aptitude tests, you will be presented with a work simulated task related to the specific business area you have applied to. The case study would involve a fictitious information on HSBC, and some numerical data to which you will need to provide written or video recorded interpretation.

HSBC Telephone Interview

A telephone interview can be daunting. Especially, when someone lacks the confidence to talk to strangers on the phone. And your awareness of this conversation being the first interaction with someone from the HSBC only makes it even more stressful. So it’s important to know how to snap out of that nervousness.

HSBC Assessment Centre / Super Day

Congratulations, you made it to the last level! The HSBC Assessment Centers are usually a mix of individual and group activities. The exercises will differ depending on the job position you are applying for, but it is recommended to be well prepared for both scenarios in order to stand out from the crowd.
