Parents of Successful PWC Applicant 2017
Congratulations on successfully submitting your registration form! Approximately 50% of applicants won’t have made it this far, so you’re already doing very well! Now it’s time to take it to the next level.
Stage two of the Deloitte job application procedure is the aptitude test. During this process, you will be undertaking numerical, critical thinking or/and verbal reasoning tests, depending on your specific service line.
After choosing a convenient date from the options offered to you by Deloitte, you will typically have between one and two weeks to prepare. As we all know, job tests can be daunting and how can you be fully confident of putting in a perfect performance if you lack Big Four experience? As long as you can demonstrate passion and endeavor, we will give you the support you need to land your dream job.
Deloitte have designed the aptitude test to assess you against the Deloitte competencies criteria. The test will be time-limited, so you must be able to withstand pressure. Our training will ensure that you are fully confident and prepared for any eventuality. Imagine the embarrassment and panic caused by‘freezing up’ during the Deloitte aptitude test and you’ll realise just how important this is.
Although Deloitte do list key competencies criteria on their website, they don’t provide many details on the initial and follow-up questions you can expect to face. However, you can draw on the experience of our experts, who have previously worked for Big Four firms, to give you a major advantage in this area.
The relevant software has been developed for the company by Talent Lens and Kenexa, both are renowned global HR consultancies that publish various psychometric tests for Deloitte worldwide. The Deloitte aptitude test comes in two parts:
A. The numerical reasoning tests are based on data presented in formats such as graphs and charts. There will be three questions per scenario, leading to a total of 21 questions (21 scenario) that must all be answered within 30 minutes. You are expected to demonstrate your ability with figures, your analytical skills and sensible time management.
B. Critical thinking reasoning skill tests consist of a series of short passages on written information. Applicants are expected to analyse and evaluate the written passages in search of the logical answers. There will be five sections in this test comprised of Assumptions, Arguments, Deductions, Inferences and to Interpret information. questions per scenario, leading to a total of 40 questions (8 x 5 scenarios per sections) that must all be answered within 30 minutes. You are expected to demonstrate your creativity, problem solving and analysis skills.
C. The verbal reasoning tests usually come after the numerical reasoning tests and consist of a series of statements that you must determine as true, false or ‘cannot say’. There will be three questions per scenario, leading to a total of 20 questions (10x2 scenarios) that must all be answered within 25 minutes. You are expected to demonstrate your business judgement and problem solving skills.
Deloitte will not provide you with an informational booklet in preparation for this stage, so you need the relevant information and guidance well in advance. Do not think that you can successfully guess your way through the aptitude test, as you will be sorely mistaken.
Your performance during the aptitude test will be kept on permanent record and used during Deloitte’s final deliberations to determine whether or not you have got the job. It’s more than possible to successfully get through this stage by attaining a passing grade, yet fail to secure employment when Deloitte recruiters take a look at your collective performances over the whole application process.
Deloitte grade your ability on each stage between 1 point and 5. It is assumed by Deloitte that if an applicant can demonstrate ‘core capabilities’ and attain the full 5 marks during the aptitude test process then they automatically become a perfect match for the firm.
This means you need to score the maximum 5 points on every single stage to set yourself apart from rival job seekers and cannot afford to miss opportunity without having been properly prepared by Green Turn.
