    This is just for anyone applying for/interested in the PwC Insight Week 2016!

    Where is everyone applying for and for which dates?
    What did you get for your online test scores?

    I'm applying for at the Reading branch for the 22nd August. For the online tests I got 'area of strength' for both numerical and verbal reasoning, with both being 'above average' against other applicants!

    You can leave it open as far as I can remember.

    What was the numerical reasoning test like? Difficult? I recently did the EY one and I'm certain I got through, but then yesterday I did BDO and failed completely. It was so damn hard.

    The most difficult I had ever done, it was way more intense than the EY one.

    Luckily I got it as an area of strength, the second highest category, and 'above average' compared with others who have applied.

    What do you need help with exactly?

    Try this website - http://www.practiceaptitudetests.com...easoning-tests.

    They have 2 free tests, or 15 if you buy the whole package for 10 quid (which I did, I reckon it's worth it).

    You have to do it yourself! Just make sure once you commit to it, you're confident and focused.
