    Applied for the Graduate Development Programme and I've also been invited to complete a Gold Test (Analytical exercise) by Proversity. Anyone have any idea what the test is like?

    Aw I'm sorry to hear. I'm not particularly great with SJT's so I was a little surprised to see that I have been invited to complete the next stage. Good luck with your other applications!

    I have briefly looked online and upon registering it says there are 4 modules, two are assessed and each module will have a scenario with 15 MC questions to assess our analytical and reasoning skills? However I don't know exactly what this means...

    If anybody takes the analytical gold test (not sure if that's the name, or different tests are given o different streams) and has any info about what it involves that would be great.

    The golden tests gives you a situation, various information, which you will have to use to answer multiple choice questions. Quite interesting and not that complicated (at least for generalist stream). I suggest you just sit down and do it, it is not timed.

    Don't feel too bad, I've just done the tests too and also had an absolute nightmare! Some of them were ridiculous and I'm not sure how you would possibly know the answer without knowing their internal policy (i.e. the welfare bit). Pretty bizarre scenario and pretty disappointing way to go out too.

    Good luck to others!

    I know someone mentioned this, but double-checking: is the Analytical test timed/ time-recorded?

    I did the test earlier and it is not timed so no need to rush through the questions. The test is quite different from standard psychometric tests and I recommend at least an hour to complete the whole thing

    It's hard in that they give you a lot of information and most questions have a lot of options to choose. You need to pay attention to certain details and think about how to solve the main problem. I recommend you take advantage of the lack of time limit and carefully consider what the answers are. Good luck!
