So EY opened for graduate applications today. What is everyone applying for and does anyone know how the application process works this year?

I completed the first stage 'learning about you'. I am now confused what the next three stages are and when I should know if I have progressed to the second stage.

I am applying for Financial Services Business Consulting - March 2019 Scheme.

I found a bit about the new recruitment process; https://ukcareers.ey.com/students/ho...cation-process

Just completed Stage two. It seems to be different from previous years. Kinda complicated I would say. It’s verbal, numerical and strength type of questions all combined together, with information in different forms ( article, graph, video). I took too long to complete the test. Don’t feel I did it well

Ahhhh yeah man! Probably they're taking their time to review tests to set a "fair" benchmark. But yes, that was a nightmare. And there's to more tests to go! Lol.

Just completed the Learning for a Changing World stage. They said it should take around 45 minutes, but I went way over that! How long did others take? Hoping it doesn't reflect too badly on my overall score. Most likely got a rejection coming!
Good luck to everyone else.

It took me 1 and a half hours and in between went to the bathroom🤣

It was at the point where I felt I'm definitely failing.
I'm still waiting for the feedback report.

I still haven't touched mine since I forgot to take my earphone before but it was so much to do and I don't know where to start to be honest. Good luck for all of us!

An absolute age lol. But it doesn't seem timed, similar to Deloitte's immersive test.

I think they might take time into account i.e. accuracy vs speed, but it's surely better to do it correctly over quickly ugh it was just so much effort lol cba

Well it depends, like the new immersive test a lot of firms are doing doesn't take time into account. Only accuracy.

That test was definitely exhausting! Anyone knows when PWC and KPMG are going to open for deal advisory?
