Does anyone know the passrate for the PwC online tests?

I'm going for the Insight Academy and it'll be my first proper online test and I'm bricking it

Its standard - know percentage changes, how to read graphs etc. Its no more than GCSE maths. I was in the 99th percentile, as were many others I know.

Just practice - you need to get your head around the way the questions are phrased. Use a decent calculator. Work fast. Think logically. Pass rates aren't really all that important in my opinion, especially as you're compared to others who took the test. Good luck! .

It works out that you have to answer a question every 15 seconds or so. Many of the questions require multiple stages.

The time pressure is the hard bit, not the content.

We must be talking about a different test. I meant the 21 questions in 21 minutes one, of of a similar question/time ratio.

I was going from my experience with Deloitte and KPMG's. Maybe PWC is easier.

That also means that you and your friends/acquaintances did extraordinarily well: i.e. it's unlikely than one would get as high a score as you.

Lol, yeah, 99th percentile means 99% of people got below what I did. haha

Me too! We're like an elite group :rolleyes:

KPMG's one is a lot harder, but I think a lot more interesting. I was shocked at how difficult people find it though.

PWC numeracy test is fairly straightforward (compared to IBs)

Incidentally, I passed their tests, wrote a kickass, highly polished answer to 2nd round Q, but then got binned when they realised I'd had health probs in the past which had kept me out of full time education

nice one PWC.. 'Jeremy Hunts'

How did they find that out in the 2nd round?

Hi I got offers from both PWC and EY. I got help with my interview and assessment centre with a company called Green Turn. They’re quite good actually as they gave me step by step guidance on areas I lacked confidence in. I will be happy to share my preparation notes if anyone need it, good luck!
