    I'd use practise aptitude tests.com they have some free ones on there. BA's numerical is basic maths, ratios, graphs, pie charts etc.

    Hi everyone, I applied for the Future Leaders programme to start in September 2019 and thought we can all help each other, who are applying this year, with useful tips and advice. For example, what is the procedure now and has it changed this year? what online tests are there now? how many? Interview stage? has anyone heard back? etc. Any information people have to help each other in the process will be great!

    Hi there! There's a (slightly) more active thread for 2018/9 applications here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5573430

    As far as I'm aware no one on TSR has heard back after interview yet; fingers crossed they start processing them soon!

    Guys. When we do the situtational test do you think they are looking for more independent than teamwork skills? Like any tips for the people that have done the situational tests or numerical to get to interview stage?

    Finished both the situational tests, which weren't too difficult for anyone who hasn't completed them yet. Just your standard most and least likely responses to senarios. About to sit the numerical reasoning test, has anyone got any advice on how it is? is there a time limit? Is there a lot of questions?



    Cheers

    Hi, just done the practice numerical tests and found it quite difficult! Is the actual test about the same level of difficulty? + Do they cut you off after 25 mins? Or is the time limit just an expected amount of time you should complete it in? Cheers.

    I can't remember if it is time assessed or time monitored. Either way work fast and correct. Make sure you know your basic maths. It's difficult if you aren't prepared for the types of questions

    Hey guys, I was just wondering after submitting the online application, are you automatically forwarded onto the onlines tests? Also, is there a deadline to complete the tests before a certain date?

    I've done the online practice paper for SHL who are the examing body who do the numerical test for BA. Found theirs pretty tricky, hoping that the actual test isn't as difficult. I know my basic maths i.e. percentage change, ratios, graphs, pie charts etc. but found that their test expected lots of calculations in such a short space of time. Were you able to complete all the questions in the 25mins? Worried I'll only get through a handful of questions.

    Yea you should be forwarded on your portal! Unsure if there's a deadline but it's better to try and do them asap as positions do fill up

    Yeah I did them all in the time frame you can definitely get them all done. I'd say to be confident with working with numbers and not to second guess yourself. Even if you missed the last 2 and you got all the rest right you'd probably be okay. The test is relatively similar to the practice ones you can find.

    Hi Guys,

    I've applied for the commercial scheme, has anybody else applied for it? Just did my first online test which was a simulation, which was a bit strange, almost like a simulated situational judgment test. How have people found the numerical and verbal tests?

    I found the numerical test really hard. But I'm not that mathsy, but you need to be on it

    Hi there!I've too applied for the Commercial scheme. I found the numerical test a bit hard as well, more a matter of time though, the question themselves are not that hard if you try the practice test beforehand.

    I applied for the logistics grad scheme so I’m not sure if the maths test was harder. Wish I’d applied for commercial but ah well
