I have anxiety and have been getting in the bottom percentile for the IB numerical tests . I get mini panic attacks when i have to sit the tests and "brain freezes." It is much worse when I see the timer on the page.
I'm looking to get into consultancy at one of the Big 4 as the next best option, however have just found out that consulting gives you an SHL numerical test too. Are the numerical tests for consulting the same level of difficult as the banking ones?
I don't want to tell any prospective employers about my anxiety

What are the numerical tests like for the Consultancy divisions of the Big 4? watch

Easier, but you'll still fail if you're getting panic attacks. Half of the purpose of the test is meant to put you under pressure and see how you react, and you will experience this pressure tenfold in the actual role. Maybe you aren't cut out for it? Have you sought help for the attacks?Last edited by Smtn; 04-04-2011 at 15:59.
