    Hi

    I'm still on the initial application, waiting for my teacher to send me my written reference, however the referees section still says incomplete even though I have entered my academic referee. How many referees did you have?

    Good luck with the rest of your application!!

    Yeah there's a drop down on the referee bit where it says academic, it took me a while to find😅 Anyway there you add a professional and personal referee or the section won't be completed. Good luck your nearly there to the tests😄

    Sent an email to my referee asking for a PDF copy on Tuesday. Broke up on Thursday and have yet to receive it, and doubt I will over the week off. Hopefully applications don't close any time soon otherwise my college has completely ****ed me.

    Also how many referees did you have?

    I don't think it's the website that's the problem. Try another computer (like schools) or contact Kpmg through email about it😄

    hey, just completed the application after receiving my academic reference. i was sent a link to complete a 'situational judgement test' and then shortly after another email telling me to do a 'verbal reasoning test' and then a 'numerical test'. after completion, i received an email straight after stating that the recruitment team is now personally reviewing my application and will be in touch within the next 48 hours to let me know of my outcome

    considering im better at maths than english academically speaking, i think i did better in the verbal one where i managed to answer most of the questions and spent less than 2 mins on each. for the numerical one, i answered about 5 but made sure they were correct (tried using the whole quality over quantity approach). the questions are fairly long and a calculator, pen and paper is basically compulsory. the wording wasnt that very helpful and you have to understand the data and numbers given before even attempting the question

    Did you do much practice before doing the tests, or did you go in "blind"? Thanks.
