What Is the HSBC Situational Judgement Test?

Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) have become a popular psychological tool used by organisations to evaluate applicants' behavioural and cognitive abilities when introduced with hypothetical, daily work-related situations. The scenarios presented in SJTs ask you to resolve a given conflict involving supervisor-subordinate relationships, time management, a disagreement between work colleagues, and more. You are given a number of possible ways to deal with the situation and your task is to evaluate their desirability.

HSBC asks many of the candidates applying for positions with its company to complete a situational judgment test. This test is delivered by an assessment company called CEB SHL Talent Measurement; it is often referred to as the HSBC Talent Screener.

Different versions of this test are used for different types of jobs. The general format of the test is the same for all, but the situations described and the competencies assessed by the test may vary.

The situational judgement test HSBC uses most often is the Graduate Talent Screener. This test is usually delivered to students and graduates applying to the company.

The HSBC Graduate Talent Screener

In this untimed HSBC situational judgement test you are given a series of questions. Each question presents you with a paragraph describing a scenario you may encounter while working at HSBC as an intern or in a graduate role. You are given three possible courses of actions to resolve the dilemma or problem arising from the situation. You need to choose the responses you find most and least effective.

The HSBC Graduate Talent Screener assesses your problem solving skills, prioritisation and time management, interpersonal abilities (including the ability to interact with future clients, colleagues, and superiors), and other competencies HSBC values.

Why Is It Important to Prepare for the Test?

HSBC is very selective in its recruitment methods. It looks for employees who won't only excel at their job but who also fit into the organisational culture. The SJT test HSBC employs allows the company to sift through the large volume of candidates applying for each position and choose only those who demonstrate the company's values in their everyday work.

For that reason, many of the candidates applying for an internship, a graduate scheme, or other graduate jobs with HSBC are required to take the HSBC Graduate Talent Screener test. This test is delivered at the early stages of the recruitment process, and only those who pass it move on to the next stage.

To pass the HSBC SJT test, it is highly recommended that you familiarise yourself with the concepts of the test and have a good understanding of the answers HSBC is looking for. Through practice, you can understand and internalise the competencies HSBC admires and learn how to answer the questions in a way that manifests these competencies.

Preparing for your Situational Judgment Test can prompt a significant change in the way you perceive your work etiquette, problem solving skills, and interpersonal skills. It can help you answer certain questions you may come across during your interview as well. More importantly, it can give you a new perspective on your actual day-to-day work.

How Can We Help You Prepare for the Test?

Our experts have created a unique pack to give you a complete walk-through of situational judgement tests and help you prepare for your HSBC Graduate Talent Screener.

The pack includes online practice drills and tutorials that provide invaluable insights into the way employers consider your choice of actions when confronted with conflict.

In particular, you will learn how to identify the dilemma presented in each question and the competencies involved in it. This will help you learn how to solve the HSBC SJT in a way that demonstrates the competencies appreciated by the company.
