    Hello guys, I received an email from PwC stating this

    "if you do not receive an email response from us within 24 hours of completing the tests, please log back into your account and ensure you have completed all of the tests before contacting the team. "

    However, I still have heard nothing. I am sure I completed the tests, but no news. Shall I call them on Monday?

    Or do you think they process online tests during the weekend?

    Thanks a lot.

    pretty hard and long . I did horribly badly and just need them to stop torturing me and just inform me that I hav failed.


    TIP: make sure you are familiar with graphs/charts.... and read ALL the info and understand it, even the little text under the graph.

    I wouldn't worry - they are pretty slow sometimes. Also, I am sure they don't work over the weekend

    If you did the test today or yesterday, I imagine they will email you tomorrow to let you know. If they haven't emailed you tomorrow, give them a ring on Tuesday. I failed PWC tests and they emailed me pretty quickly (same day) after finishing the tests. Good luck!

    there are two: logical reasoning and numerical reasoning one. Honestly, I wish I revised maths. I spent my time preparing for the second one!!!!


    Also, it says you don't have to take them at the same time (in one sitting), but that's so false. I meant to only sit the logical reasoning one, log out and then do the rest after preparing sufficiently for the numerical test. BUT, the first test was student talent questionnaire, then numerical, then logical and then personality.

    Grrrr, I wish I had prepared for both and then done the two tests together. I ended up guessing probably all of the numerical questions!!!!


    Oh well.

    so is no news good news?


    I am quite sure I failed as I guessed all of the numerical questions due to not understanding the data and maybe even the questions.



    What day did you do your test?
    Maybe it was a working day and they were at work, so they could get back to you quite fast.


    Do you know of people who had to wait for a week only to get rejected?

    you don't need to do tests for the insight day. I attended one in 2009 and was not required to do anything other than fill in an application form.

    I have applied to PwC twice - the first time they got back to me at each stage very quickly but i ultimately failed at the AC. The second time they got back to me very late at every stage but I ultimately got an offer (although in took them 10 days after the AC to tell me...) Do not worry about time lengths - they mean nothing and they will let you know either way.

    You cannot really fail student talent and the personality ones - and if you do then I promise you that you would not like working there! It is to see how you react to workplace decisions (if its the same as the ones I did which I assume they are). If therefore they don't like the way you react better know now than spend your first year getting disciplined!

    I am sure nobody fails though who has researched what the company and industry is like

    I really don't get why they require you to do the tests. It's only 1 day.

    Bu tbest of luck and make sure you are fully confident in percentages and converting before you attempt the test.

    definitely do some revision before them. Even if you are good at maths, it is worth doing practice tests before you do the proper one. It really is because the tests are quite different to a level maths. Basically, google "numerical reasoning tests" and you should see a lot of free tests you can do that are similar to the real ones. Look at Kent uni as well for guidance on how to approach them.

    Good luck.

    tried the shl ones at the very beginning, got 44% which is okay. they initally gave like a 5 day deadline but i didnt do it, so they extended it. i have to do it now or i will never do it

    and i dont think these exams are ones that you can feel confident in them

    and it's only an insight day
