I got an email saying that the feedback was available - came about 2 days after i completed the test!
I received the same, and in the Accenture feedback it said to expect a response within 10 working days. For me the 10 working days deadline is tomorrow - unsure whether that is a good thing or not! Is the next round an AC, if successful?

It's been I think 13 working days for me. I emailed them and they said it usually takes 10-15 working days and they've had way more applications than anticipated so we should know in the coming days - pretty sure next is video interview. Everywhere I've read they're renowned for being slow so expect the same wait after the next step.

I think that I applied for a graduate scheme which has start dates between February and June - if they want me to start in February they had better hurry up with the whole process haha

Yup I did as well and it's actually January-June haha. From what I gather successful applicants will almost definitely not be starting in January, probably more like March or something. Looking at last years threads they were equally slow so no chance anyone would get an offer by January.

I'm very unsure how to take this - either it's a polite rejection, or maybe they are waiting for more people to complete the online tests to set a benchmark?

I started my application to Accenture last week on their ‘headstart’ thing, but I’ve not heard back for anything, including completing online tests.
Am I missing doing something here? Seems like a vary weird application system...

I genuinely think it's because they're just very very slow at processing applications (or at least I keep telling myself this haha). I looked at last years thread and they were all experiencing the same slowness lmao

You should get an email for their immersive assessment thing. Maybe they're slowing everything down as they have so many applications

Having to apply through Headstart alone complicates the whole process!

I got rejected from Accenture without even getting the immersive assessments just based on my app 6 hours later even though I’ve had solid internships, a first and all A**s, numerous extracurriculars, listed all the target skills (and made it to final assessment round last year but was put on hold because they filled all positions) so I’m wondering if it was the personality quiz that was to my detriment? I’m wondering what your scores were like for that? I skewed 91 in favour of people vs task- oriented and I’m worried that nulled me. Just looking for some clarity so I know how to proceed with future apps to avoid a similar fate. Pretty gutted to be automatically rejected after I was pre-screened for a referral and they liked my cv and skills. Thanks all.
That's pretty odd. The fact you got rejected so quickly must mean it's something in your application. Maybe it is the quiz, although I checked and I got 83 in favour of people focused (pretty such it's better to be people focused). I remember I got rejected from somewhere because I accidentally ticked no to a question that needed to be a yes

I actually got exactly the same - 83 people focused!
