Morgan Stanley Aptitude Test

    • Thread Starter

    OK I have an aptitude test for a Finance industrial placement coming up at the end of themonth and I was wondering if anyone out there has taken one of these at MS before. It follows SHL - that much I know, but is there anything else I need to know?

    My boyfriend took one of these the other day!

    I don't know what it entailed exactly, but good luck!

    Thanks for that insightful post..... :/

    Surely it's just an SHL numerical and maybe a verbal reasoning test. You can find loads of sample tests if you google SHL.

    I did this recently.

    It's 3 parts.

    1) Accuracy test... they give you a number (e.g 8022) and you have to match the right option, e.g:

    a) 8028 b) 8202 c) 8220 d) 8022 e) 8020

    2) Verbal, standard SHL test

    3) Numerical, pretty standard SHL test, booklet at back of paper with info and just go through and answer questions using it

    And it is a written test, not on PCs or anything.
