    This is for those who are also planning to make applications in this coming Autumn.

    The assessment centre stage, especially written exercises, used to be where I have been always ended with failing. It motivates me to form a small group - maybe 4/5 people to stimulate/practise the assessment centre and integrate each one's strengths.

    We will be aimed to improve skills in the following areas:

    -Psychometric tests, including verbal, numerical and logical, as these tests can be contained in some assessment centres. (I have some tests pools for some companies, we can further generate more for other companies);

    -Written exercises, where we need to pick up some materials from real assessment centres, newspapers and other resources. So forming a team will highly improve the efficiency - we can do this preparation in turn.

    - Group case study, including discussion, answering assessor's questions, and probably a presentation. We can serve as the assessor in turn.

    - Competency/Technical based interview.

    We will definitely focus on the part of Written Exercise and Group Discussion, as they are more objective. We can gather together once/twice a week at a library or some other quite places for 2 hours on the exercises.

    PM me with your email should you be interested. I will email you all back/form a facebook group, once we get 4/5 people to see where we go.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
