    Hattie, I'm sorry to hear that - I know the struggles with those tests which imo are a filter to make it easier for HR to go through the apps they gotta read. Mind asking what you were actually asked in that test and what it consists of? Thanks very much and heads up!

    Linklaters also have a CAPP situational judgment test, in addition to the Watson Glaser which you also do.

    NRF also do a SWIFT test (mix of maths and analytical questions) pre-AC i.e. you are given a link to the test only if you're being invited to the AC. It was really unexpected and I still have no idea if the outcome of the test has any bearing on whether you get made an offer.
