    Hi,
    I have my ac coming up - could you please give more details on what you did on yours?

    Were there SHL tests?
    What was the group exercise about?
    and if there was any program specific exercise?

    Would really be grateful for some insight.

    Thanks a lot!!!
    Sorry this was around a year ago now. I remember doing a presentation, but you had to prep for that before hand

    Hey,

    I think this is a slightly old thread, I found a newer one when I was looking for the answers to these questions myself. I applied for the strategy scheme and we didn't have the shl tests. The group exercise was something quite easy and you can't prep for, literally make sure that you listen and also contribute. The program specific exercise for me I was asked to prep in advance with. I was asked to bring articles highlighting good and bad strategies to discuss for an hour.

    It was ok really, the day started with an ice breaker which apparently lots of groups don't do well on (yes an ice breaker was a task and they started assessing us straight away, they were taking notes).

    I'm a bit dubious whether I will get the job. I was the only one in attendance at my assesment centre who was still taking their undergraduate degree. 9 of us in total, the majority had masters and a couple had phd's so I'm unsure which 2 out of the 9 will get it

    Hi,

    I have an assessment centre coming up for the Sky Finance graduate scheme. I was wondering if you could give me some tips to help me with the day. What is the group task like? What tests do you have to do? And was your interview competency based?

    Thanks

    hi.

    I had an assessment centre for sky the other week,

    It really is like they say on the website. a selection of tests from this list kind of thing.
    Just know your stuff about the programme/why that programme/why sky

    and then know about you! thats what they want to know a lot about and it is linked into the competency based questions in an interview!
