    does any1 know if Grant Thornton have opened all their graduate roles for 2017?
    I couldn't say if they've opened ALL of them, but they have certainly opened a lot of roles within the last week.*

    Really disliked the PWC questionnare, some of the questions make it impossible to follow a 'pattern' of answers so to speak and force your options to be inconsistent.

    Hi, just wanted to know did you apply for a school leavers programme or graduate role at pwc since i did the tests for pwc and i only got numerical and verbal reasoning tests. They told me my results but they said you have to wait 5 days to let you know your progress to the next stage (that was last wednesday so should get an email today).

    EY those tests I found hard and i agree the worst part for them was to give such a pathetic deadline.

    Just did the KPMG verbal reasoning test. Most intense verbal reasoning test I've sat ever by far.*

    I found their numerical test awful. Loads of questions, all quite difficult, all fairly poorly worded.

    Anyone done EY numerical tests? *

    I've also been invited to sit the EY tests this evening. Hopefully they are easier than KPMG's. Also agree that the PwC questionnaire was so bad, forcing you to be inconsistent.

    Just done the EY tests. Id say they arent too difficult, so it may come down to speed, as they except high accuracy.*

    I'm guessing this discussion is for the graduate applications only? With all this activity I keep thinking I completely missed the boat regarding school leave applicants.

    Completed the EY tests last night. They use Capp assessments, which is the same as Deloitte, so I already had experience of the type and difficulty of questions. 1 or 2 of the questions were exactly the same. Think they weren't too difficult, and were much easier than PwC's.
