    I am torn between Accenture and IBM as both are technology giants but I am more inclined towards consulting though... Did you consider Accenture and Capgemini?
    Hi if I'm honest no I heard about IBM and just became really interested in the company and what they do kind of had a narrow view and had my heart set on it. Sorry that's not v helpful , have you spoken to anyone who is on the grad scheme at either of them? I have a friend bat Accenture I can put you in touch with if you want? Pm me

    Still nothing. I'm guessing they wait until the second load of people finish their tests (on the 7th I think it was). Unless you've heard of anyone else getting one?
    Interview this week with OC&C. It is a straight first and final round in a day kinda event.

    Hi guys just had my first round interview with EY with their lead advisory programme few hours ago. I haven't heard anything from them as yet does that mean I'm rejected?? I've heard successful candidates hear back after 2 hours

    Thanks. But if I don't hear back from them by tomorrow I'm going to assume rejection no?

    The person who interviewed me called me the next morning to tell me to expect an e-mail, which I have received at 8:55 that morning too. Would never assume rejection this quickly but they do seem to be within 2 days.

    Nope, apparently we're in a queue depending on application date - as it's one of the most popular schemes it's a very slow moving queue

    Most HR's are absolutely swamped right now. Not one of my other apps has responded to me in the timeframe they have stated, i wouldn't worry. Its a rejection when you get the email saying so.

    Agreed! I know it's a different firm but deloitte got back to me 2 weeks after the interview and I was sure it meant id failed but it didn't! Good luck!

    Can someone tell me what test providers Oliver Wyman use? I was invited to sit the numerical and critical reasoning tests. Is the critical reasoning test like logical reasoning (shapes and patterns etc.) or is it stating whether a statement is true or false type of test?

    I took the Oliver Wyman test not so long ago. Passed it too. Practiced with the jobtestprep Oliver Wyman pack, found it really useful, and really calmed me down.
    Hi, bit of a long shot but any chance you could share your Oliver Wyman pack with me please? I really need practice but don't have enough money, I'd be really grateful! thanks

    People on this thread have reported hearing back. I applied months ago and haven't heard back.
