    Thank you.
    Congrats! Did you receive the email today? Did you have any interviews? When did you do the tests? Sorry if Im asking to many questions. Deloitte is probably one of the main places im interested in so yeah heh

    I would assume it would be around the middle of October.

    Ah ok, so quite a bit earlier than me. I only just did my tests yesterday.

    Ive applied to quite a fair bit of places, 15+ at least, though I dont have much hope for them.

    This may seem like a random question but how hard is it to get into consulting?
    I am graduating in 2017 with a predicted First in economics from a middle of the road uni (non-target but not a polytechnic).
    I have spent a year in industry at a bulge bracket investment bank and also have 3 months experience abroad volunteering.
    I'm not really sure what my chances are.

    Yeah, I got that today too. Planning to get it over and done with tomorrow as from Thursday I move into my uni house and we don't yet have wifi.. Good luck with yours!
    How did your test go?

    I have until Wednesday to do mine.

    I would like to ask what advice you have regarding preparing for it?

    How many questions does each test contain and what is the time limit for each test?

    Also, which role did you apply to out of interest?

    I applied to the Business Analyst role,

    I've just been invited to sit a McKinsey numerical and verbal reasoning. Has anybody else?
    I am guessing you have completed it by now?

    Since I have until Wednesday to do mine, I would like to ask the same questions that I have asked Naomi12

    How did it go?

    Hello,

    They were ok, just a standard SHL numerical and verbal reasoning. I'm not too keen on verbal reasoning but it wasn't ridiculously hard. To prepare I used Assessment Day and just went through a lot of of practice tests. To crack these psychometric tests you need to be able to work quickly but thoroughly and gaining those skills takes practice.

    I'm sorry but I can't remember how many questions there were but if you click the link and go onto the SHL portal it will tell you. Don't worry, it'll be fine just make sure you prepare beforehand. Good luck!

    I just got an invite from Bain for their logic test and fill out this academic achievements form. Does everyone get that invite?

    I was going to apply but decided not to in the end, however there were applications for the London one up about 3 weeks ago as I was so close to sending an application. Can't remember where exactly but keep searching
