Hi

ive just been called back for a second interview followed by three tests, one of which is a written test. Has anyone recently completed a written test?

Worked at PwC a while ago - great place - never did a written test there but I did one at KPMG once.

'Written test' (like your question) it doesn't give you much to go on does it! Have you asked them politely about the type of thing it might involve.

- The KPMG one was similar to the written part of the GMAT (not everyone does that bit). You might of seen them before - you get some narrative and/or a table of figures and have to write a response to a few questions.

I don't know, perhaps some narrative about a strategy with a table of sales figures. Was Company A right to pursue their strategy? Then you might construct a half pager and draw some figures out of the table to identify trends etc. and move onto the next question. That type of thing. Do read the questions though as my Economics teacher used to say!

- it might, but shouldn't mean, a test where box ticking is considered writing. Unlikely though if you do three tests (e.g. my guess is that you will get: Verbal reasoning, Numerical and Written).

Hi John,

Your post was some months a ago, so I'm assuming you have completed the second stage interview at PwC. Hope you were successful. May I ask what the structure/approach of the written test was?
