KPMG Etray Exercise Guidance To Pass In First Attempt


KPMG Etray (In-Tray) Exercise: Pass at Your First Attempt


Congratulations on passing the aptitude tests! Approximately 85% of applicants won’t have made it this far, so you’re already doing very well indeed! It’s time to push ahead and take it to the next level.



An Overview:

Stage eight of the KPMG application process is the ‘in-tray exercise’, which is part of the KPMG Launch Pad Assessment Centre process. At the KPMG Lauch Pad, you will take both in-tray and role-play exercises. You will also be re-sitting the numerical reasoning test and one of the verbal or diagrammatic reasoning tests.

KPMG Launch Pad Etray In-Tray Preparation:

After you choose a convenient date from the options offered by KPMG, you will have roughly one to 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 show sufficient drive and enthusiasm, we will give you the support you need to land the job of your dreams.




KPMG Etray In-tray Competency Criteria:

KPMG has created the in-tray exercise to judge you against their key competencies criteria. The test will be time-restricted, so you must be able to cope with intense pressure. Our training will ensure that you are fully confident and ready to deal with any eventuality. Imagine the embarrassment and panic caused by ‘freezing up’ during the KPMG Etray exercise and you’ll realise just how crucial this is.


Although KPMG 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.



KPMG Launch Pad Etray Test Details:

KPMG’s in-tray exercise is designed to reflect a real office environment. The relevant software has been developed for the company by Cubiks, a renowned global HR consultancy that publishes various psychometric tests for KPMG worldwide.


In the updated Etray exercise, you will be involved in various real time office tasks such as responding to emails after analysing client information and compiling graphs, charts and spreadsheets.


You can also practice an eTray exercise on the Cubiks website, accessible here.


The KPMG in-tray exercise comes in two parts:


A. The ‘virtual office exercise’ uses a computer-based email simulation program like Microsoft Outlook. You will receive emails and voicemail messages to increase your understanding of various work-related situations. You are required to successfully complete all tasks within the allocated hour-long time limit. Questions are presented in a ‘multiple choice’ format and your responses will be marked automatically by the KPMG simulation software (scored in the range 0 to 5).


B. In the ‘analysis exercise’ you will use a computer based word processing simulation like Microsoft Word, only without the spell check feature. You will be provided with project based fictional information to review and write a detailed report on to the client, to be completed within the allocated one-hour time limit.


C. KPMG makes it company policy to ask for feedback from both existing and potential employees and will ask you to complete a self-assessment form. The primary questions relate to your enjoyment (or not!) of particular elements of the exercise and your opinions on your own performance. KPMG will also ask you to propose ways in which the procedure could be improved. This will take around 10 minutes on average and the time you spend will be monitored. Afterwards, the form will be held up against your actual performance marks awarded to assess your ‘self review and personal perception’ skills.


You are expected to write a succinct and well-structured report. KPMG provide you with an informational booklet approximately half an hour before the test, but this short period of time is nowhere near enough in which to prepare. You need the relevant information and guidance well in advance. 




KPMG Etray Test Results:

Your performance during the in-tray exercise will remain on record and is used in KPMG’s final deliberations to determine whether or not your application has been a success. It’s fully possible to successfully get through this stage by scoring a passing mark, yet fail to secure employment when KPMG recruiters take a look at your performances over the application process in its entirety.


KPMG grade your ability on each stage between 1 point and 5. It is assumed by KPMG that if an applicant can demonstrate ‘core capabilities’ 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.
