Ernst and Young Verbal Reasoning Tests Guidance To Pass In First Attempt


Ernst and Young Verbal Reasoning Test: Pass at Your First Attempt 


Well done on successfully submitting your application! Half of the applicants won’t have made it this far, so you’re already performing above average! Now it’s time to take it to the next level. Stage four of the Ernst and Young job application procedure is the verbal reasoning test. Depending on the service line you have applied to, you may instead be required to take Ernst and Young’s inductive reasoning test.

Ernst and Young Verbal Reasoning Test Preparation:

Once you’ve picked a convenient date from the options available, you will usually have a week or two 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 Verbal Reasoning Test Strengths Criteria:

Ernst and Young have designed the verbal reasoning test to assess you against their strengths criteria. These criteria are unique amongst Big Four companies, as the others use a ‘key 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 verbal 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 Verbal Reasoning Test Details:

The relevant software has been developed for the company by Saville Consulting and Capp, renowned global occupational psychology consultancies which publish various psychometric tests for Ernst and Young worldwide. Saville Consulting offers free psychometric tests on their website, accessible here. You can practice Capp Assessment Verbal reasoning tests for free here. If you make it through to the assessment centre stage, which comes later in the job application process, you may have to resit this test. It is, therefore, crucial to start building up the necessary skills sooner rather than later.


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 two questions per scenario, leading to a total of 12 questions (6x2) that must all be answered within 18 minutes. You are expected to demonstrate your business judgement and problem-solving skills.


Ernst and Young 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 verbal reasoning test, as you will be sorely mistaken.




Ernst and Young Verbal Reasoning Test Results:

Your performance during the verbal reasoning test will be kept on company record and used during Ernst and Young’s final considerations to decide whether or not you have landed the role. It’s more than possible to successfully get through this stage by attaining a passing grade, yet fail to secure employment when Ernst and Young recruiters take a look at your collective performances over the whole application 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 capabilities’ and attain the full 5 marks during the verbal reasoning 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 jobseekers and cannot afford to take a job test without having been properly prepared by Green Turn.
