    Were the numerical questions based on accountancy knowledge? Like did they ask stuff relating to turnovers or net profits? I have a strong background in maths but I don't understand all of the accountancy language
    not really, a lot of tables use tho. Like there would be quantities on one table and price on another and you would have to work out total cost (Q*P) etc. So yes there's basic terminology but nothing too advanced😄 They asked for percentage increases etc really😄

    Wow! Thanks for the insight
    To be honest though "report" could be a whole ton of things - is it like an essay with each paragraph describing what the company produces, marketing strats etc? Or is personal opinion on how to make this company expand/do x
    It is basically producing a report for your colleagues to use in a meeting so it involves a description of the company and your opinion on certain aspects e.g. "how to improve".

    Wikijob has much more information that I feel comfortable disclosing

    Good luck!

    Forgive my ignorance but what written exercise are you talking about? Is this after the you've submitted the numerical and verbal tests?
    Yes.

    If you're successful in the tests (numerical, verbal and situational judgement) and the 90 second audio you will be invited to attend the Launch Pad event (KPMG's new assessment centre).

    90 second audio? This is the school leavers programme by the way, not the graduate scheme.

    In that case, I don't know how it works after the tests.

    Oh right they must also take your grades into account then or the pass mark must be really low.
