    Hi all,

    Recently just had an Assestment centre at PwC. Was just wondering from anyone’s past experiences, how long does it take to hear back from them if you’ve progressed to an interview?

    Thank you.

    have my assessment centre coming up in a few weeks for the school leavers programme, and I'm a bit confused on what comes up, this is what I got emailed:

    a group discussion
    an in-tray and written exercise
    numerical and verbal reasoning tests

    For the in-tray, I'm a bit confused how it works, you're given lots of emails which you priotise. Do you reply to these emails? I read somewhere you just list the type of priority and the action you would take?
    Also for a school leavers, what would the written exercises entail? Confused what happens there
    And with the group discussion, you're given a case study- and you and your group come up with a solution? Does PWC give you a range of solutions to pick from?


    Mainly the in tray and written excersies I'm confused on, but any info about each activity would be really helpful!

    Hello,

    I didn't do the In-tray so cannot help there. But on the group discussion, you get one case study with a scenario and then each get an option and have to discuss which option should be chosen to help the client.

    Hope this helps.
