    What does the IBM assessment centre involve?
    Two group exercises- one planning and one discussion based- all testing your teamwork, communication, drive (IBM's competencies basically). They each last 30 mins.

    You then wait approximately 1 hour to 1 hour and half to find out if you've been successful.

    If you are successful you will have a foundation interview and then a business interview. These are both really relaxed and the interviewers really make you feel at ease.

    The day is tiring as there is a lot of waiting about between exercises / interviews. However, I think the key is to do your research before and find something that you are really passionate about at IBM as the interviewers will like this.

    I've been waiting over two weeks to be told to book a KPMG phone interview slot - is this the norm with them right now?

    Just wondering how long I should wait before dropping an e-mail.

    Hi mate just wondering. Did you hear back from Deloitte right after the critical thinking test that you didn't make it? Or did it take some time for them to let you know?

    Cheers and good luck!

    How is the new test that Deloitte are using this year? Is there any way to prep for it?

    Also, do you get invited to the numerical right after submitting your app or do they actually read it first?

    Well done on the final interview - EY is a lot less formal than the other Big 4 if you didn't already know. They don't really ask any commercial questions, it's all about getting to know you. It should feel like a chat rather than an interview so really show your personality and as cheesy as it sounds, just smile a lot! Good luck

    If you look at this link http://www.pwc.co.uk/careers/student...nagement.jhtml then that gives the dates for application outcome, interviews, and AC. Is it not correct?

    nope because it wouldn't have added anything on top of the questions they asked on the application and my CV.

    Please help!

    I've heard Deloitte switched to the Pearsons TalentLens tests this year: is that true?

    If so, how hard are the new tests, and are they more difficult than the practice tests?

    How would you advise practising for the test? (Bear in mind I have 4 days to complete, having received the email yesterday).

    Many thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi yes the ones I took for Deloitte were Pearson
    Deloittes tests are definitely some of the easiest. They're always slightly harder than the practice tests but I got through them and haven't done maths for 6 years since my GCSEs

    I emailed them yesterday and they finally sent me invitation for testing - kinda regret not contacting them earlier but it appears they're being rather slow for everyone at the moment. Tasha, are you waiting for testing or interviews?
