    My only thought was they didn't have enough people pass/hit the criteria so they need to get more people....but that could be wildly off mark.

    I wondered about that too. I applied on the deadline day and was invited in first round of tests, so I don't think it had to do with when you applied.

    @MichaelXYZ, it's like a case study in person except with multiple choice answers (for a similar-ish experience, try the BCG online ones) with a couple of situational judgement questions thrown in. Good luck! Pretty sure I fluffed it!

    Check wikijobs threads there's loads of info there about the kind of questions, it's 'strengths' based but in reality the questions are very formulaic - slight variations on the classic 'tell me about a time when..' (there's literally a list to go through). My interviewer was very friendly so I wouldn't stress too much

    So is it all multiple choice as opposed to writing anything in yourself?

    Anyone know how long Capgemini take to get back to you after the phone interview? I've been waiting a week now!

    Also rejected from BDO this morning. Literally spent forever on their stupid application crafting 900 perfect words and didn't even get asked for tests.

    I'm waiting for a telephone interview with cap Gemini. Some people said they take around 2-3 weeks to get back to u. So you should get a reply soon. What division did u apply and what kind of competency/technical questions did they ask.

    Also, I applied to bdo m&a as well and haven't had anything. When did u apply

    Numerical, then if you pass that you get the logical.
