Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has done the HSBC job simulation 17 or 18, in need of some preparation help!

There's a post from another thread that was informative (I'm new so can't post links, but it's there if you search). But it didn't answer something else I'd like to know, so if someone else can help, it'd be great:

-specifically is the recording part just vocal or visual/webcam? and thus prepare to look presentable..

-does it have to be completed in 1 setting? unlike the first immersive assessment where it didn't matter if you logged off in the middle?

-the total duration for this round approximately (1hr? or less?)

and of course other feedback/advice would be great too, thanks

I've taken this recently...very straightforward. You can't really prepare, nothing to stress about

Can you remember roughly how much of the 2 minutes you used up on your video responses?

Some closer to 2 minutes, some closer to 45 seconds. No need to fill the time, I doubt they're looking for this. As you would in a normal interview, I'd just be sure to finish on a strong note and not ramble onward after you've made your point.

Has anyone been invited to a coding test as a second round instead? It's just landed in my inbox and i am shocked as the website didn't mention anything about something like that
