Hey would also be keen for any info - I got an invite to interview and the maths test scares me! Also would be keen to know how many they recruit out of the 'group interview'?

Hi Jokesbre, yes I got an invite for the 16th. I'm from n.ireland though, and would need to book flights etc. so just trying to weigh up whether it's worth my while! The 95% pass rate is a bit scary Macro_Guy! Have you had any similar interviews before jokesbre?

No I haven't, although I did fail the Optiver Numerical...

Wow, that single post has destroyed my confidence.....or it may have just made me even more determined to succeed :)
remember guys maths is probably the least important skill in trading. Calculators are used widely. Disciplione, money management, trading physcology and understanding sentiment is far more important.
good luck tho...

I sat the Schneider test and it was pretty easy- basic arithmetic... is Sucden really calculus and algebra - haven't done that in years!? Want to avoid pointlessly refreshing my memory :)

Cheers in advance for any help!

No its not, Sucden is also basic arithmetic. Follows the same format as the Schneider one, so you should be fine.

I would suggest you guys being to stay away from sucden's programme. Basically the program sucks! and is comparable to programs from other prop trading firms which make you work for 2-3 months without paying and the hire on a split basis revenue. This is least expected from a firm like sucden who come across as a huge broker and are well capitalised. If an institution has a quality programme and is looking for candidates from a healthy talent pool they shud reward them with a good pay
