    I applied to the actuarial programme. Completed my audio submission and they got back to me saying:

    "We have reviewed your digital submission and remain very interested in your application.

    As we recruit on a rolling basis, and due to a particularly high volume of applications received, there are a number of candidates currently ahead of you in the process and roles could be filled before you reach the final stage.

    We are continually reviewing the outcomes of those ahead of you and will be in touch as soon as possible to confirm if we are able to progress you to the next stage of the process."

    I’ve applied for Audit in LeedsSubmitted the audio at the weekend andGot this reply today:“We have reviewed your digital submission and remain very interested in your application.Due to a particularly high volume of applications received and limited spaces available on the programme you have applied to, at this stage we are unable to confirm if we can progress your application. We will be in touch as soon as we can advise you further and confirm next steps.”Hope it’s not just a polite way to wait to say no

    Hello. KPMG gives 3 online tests once your application has been submitted. The tests are situational judgment, verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning. In order to get through the next stage of the process, you need to get at least 70% in each of the tests. Only after successfully passing the tests, they will review your application and take it to the interview stage. I know many people are struggling with the tests. If you are one of them you can message me on Whatsapp +447857086447 . I will be happy to assist you in online tests stage.

    Don’t listen to this guy. I completed about 50-60% of the numerical test and got through to the audio stage. No idea what the pass mark is but it’s definitely not “at least 70%”

    Can those having passed the situational judgement test offer tips/advice for passing. What approaches, thought processes and practice was implemented. I was unsuccessful on my first application, hopefully your replies will help future applications. Thanks in advance.

    For the SJT just keep KPMG's key values in mind when selecting your answers. But it also good to consider just saying what you would do personally since everyone has different approaches. Overall, just put KPMG as top priority in your answers alongside showing you have considered the circumstances you are facing in each scenario that each question gives.

    I might be losing the plot guys but are the KPMG Business Consulting Grad 2019 programmes closed for Advisory. I want to get into Insolvency / Restructuring etc but they are not appearing for me on the website? Every other programme appears such as tax etc but not this.

    I applied to Investment Advisory, passed all stages including audio submission now waiting for them to see if they have space on a LP. It's crazy because I applied the day they opened and they're already acting like they have a lot of demand.
