Ernst and Young Written Communication Report Exercise 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 Written Report Exercise Strengths Competency Criteria:

EY has designed the written report exercise 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’ at the Ernst and Young written communication exercise and you’ll realise just how important this is.


EY only provides 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 Written Report Exercise Details:

The relevant software has been developed for the company by Saville Consulting, a renowned global occupational psychology consultancy that publishes various psychometric tests for Ernst and Young worldwide. You will be given an information pack to read through and base two concise reports on within 40 minutes, using a laptop. The first report, written for a fictional Ernst and Young client, is set to judge your analytical, business judgement, and report writing skills. The second report, written for an Ernst and Young manager, is to judge your work ethic and character. Tasks are designed to reflect real-life Ernst and Young work situations. Your responses to the written exercise will affect subsequent test stages.


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.


Ernst and Young will not provide you with instructional booklets or any other means of preparation for the written communication exercise. Therefore, you need relevant information and guidance well in advance. Do not think that you can successfully guess your way through the written communication exercise tests, as you will be sorely mistaken.

Ernst and Young Written Communication Exercise Results:

Your performance during the written 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 capabilities’ (strengths) and attain the full 5 marks during the written communication exercise 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 take a job test without having been properly prepared by Green Turn.
