    If you go on the part on the website where they talk about the assessments they only talk about the 4 that were given last year. What did you apply for?

    My mate called them and they said they pre-screen your app to make sure that you're eligible for the role you applied for, then you'll get the tests. They also said it could take a couple of weeks because they've only just opened. What did you apply for?

    Hopefully we'll get the tests tomorrow. I call them tomorrow and ask about the 5 tests.

    Maybe when they say 5 tests, they could also mean the 4 + social mobility questionnaire.

    yes. harder than all i've done. main difference I remember was that they didn't abbreviate say, 6 million to £6m like the others. it just said 6,000,000. i know it seems like a small thing but I wasn't prepared for that, got confused and started panicking when I had 50 zeros in front of my face.

    also guys chill out. you'll receive the tests eventually. instead of worrying start practicing

    EY told me the online stage is split into 2 stages:

    Stage 1 - the 3 tests from last year
    Stage 2 (if u pass stage 1) - numerical and verbal tests.

    So 5 tests, good luck.

    For which firm?

    The ones I did for PwC, the practice was a good representation of the actual tests. However, for KPMG, one of my practice questions was essentially 22-15. When I got to the actual test, it was far harder, with a lot more questions than I could possible hope to answer. The whole test went terribly. *
