Ernst and Young Group Preparation:

Once you’ve picked a convenient date from the options available, you will usually have a week 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? Show us your passion and hard-working attitude and we will give you the support you require to land your dream job.




Ernst and Young Group Strengths Criteria:

Ernst and Young have designed the group exercise to assess you against their strengths criteria. These criteria are unique amongst Big Four companies, as the others use a ‘key Strength competencies’ system instead. 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 Ernst and Young numerical reasoning test and you’ll realise just how important this is.


Ernst and Young only provide a very vague description of their strengths system on their website, with no 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. 




Ernst and Young Group Test Details:

The name gives it away - this exercise will be conducted in groups. Your teamwork and coordination skills are key here, although other competency areas will also be taken into account. Depending on the service line you have applied to, the key topic will either be provided beforehand or on the day. You will all receive a standard ‘information pack’ to build up your knowledge on a particular topic, which you are expected to discuss with the team. You will be given 15 minutes to analyse the information pack and will then get a further 30 minutes to discuss it with the group. You are expected to confidently communicate your opinions with other participants and aim to reach a final conclusion.


Currently, EY is testing various types of Group Exercise Tests on the AC:

1. Group Exercise Type 1

2. Group Exercise Type 2

3. Group Pair Discussion Exercise


Also, EY is testing different types of Written Exercises Tests on the AC:

1. Written Exercise Type 1

2. Written Exercise Type 2

3. Individual Exercise


It all depends on the number of candidates who made it to the Assessment Centre (Recruitment Day / Experience Day). You will be given one or more of the above-mentioned exercises to sit on AC. 

As with all Ernst and Young assessment centre tests, the relevant software has been developed for the company by Saville Consulting and CAPP, a renowned global occupational psychology consultancy that publishes various psychometric tests for Ernst and Young worldwide.


You are not given an opportunity to view informational or practice material before the group exercise. Thus, it is vital that you receive appropriate guidance at this stage because you do not want to be waiting for a meeting feeling nervous and unprepared. You need the relevant information and guidance well in advance to give yourself a realistic chance of success.




Ernst and Young Group Test Results:

Your performance during the group exercise will be kept on the company record and used during Ernst and Young’s final considerations to decide whether or not you have landed the role. It is more than possible to successfully get through this stage by attaining a passing grade, but fail to secure employment when Ernst and Young take a look at your collective performances over the whole recruitment process.


Ernst and Young grade your ability on each stage between 1 point and 5. It is assumed by Ernst and Young that if an applicant can demonstrate ‘core Strength capabilities’ (strengths) and attain the full 5 marks during the assessment centre 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 jobseekers and cannot afford to take a job test without having been properly prepared by Green Turn.
