    Hi everyone,

    I received an email from BDO saying that I had passed the first stage of the application process and was invited to do a numerical reasoning test. I did some practice tests first to prepare and then I did the actual test, however it was ridiculously hard! They expected me to answer 18 questions in 17 mins, even though it said the recommended time for the test was 30mins?? I ran out of time with several questions left unanswered, was just wondering if anyone else had any problems with the test? And if you got through this stage, how many questions did you answer overall and how many of those were correct?

    I answered all 18 out of 18 with about a minute spare you just have to do loads of practice but its definitely achievable.

    Hi, did you pass the online tests and get into the summer internship?
