    Hey, after recently passing my assessment day at PwC and being invited to a partner interview, I was just wondering what my chances are of getting an offer?


    I've read a lot that the partner interview is really just to ensure you have the required personality and motivation to work for PwC, so do a lot of people pass this stage?


    Also what sort of numbers make it through to this stage, in relation to the total amount of applicants?


    Thank you

    I dont think you can use the overall pass rate to capture your own possibility of passing here, as partner interview is really subjective, which is dependent on the partner's taste...

    It is a general rough guide though

    I found this PDF online, which makes an interesting read.

    Student performance in selection proces
    Stage Success rate at each stage
    • Online testing 39%
    • Application form 78% (most fail on academic requirements)
    • 1st interview 54%
    • Assessment day 59%
    • Final interview 75%
    • Hiring 7.3% of total applicants


    If you exclude the 22% that fail at Application form (as may not apply to those on certain streams and those that meet requirements) then the chances of being accepted are 9.3%

    The odds at the final stage look good though! 75% chance! I think that probably demonstrates that its your offer to lose.

    That being said, the statistics do not match the proportion of applicants (35,000) to the student intake (1250), so I don't know where they got their stats from; unless they multi-count those that apply more than once, but not in the proportion of applicants to student intake.

    Could be that a fair few of those who apply to big4 get multiple offers and rejects others for one. Still, 1300 rejections would be surprising :O

    Just read it...90% acceptance rate. Hmm, not sure why the figures don't add up.
