PWC Aptitude Test Guidance To Pass In First Attempt


PWC Aptitude Test: Pass at Your First Attempt  


Congratulations on successfully completing the STQ / OPQ tests! Around 50% of applicants won’t have made it this far, so you’re already performing at a high level! Now it’s time to take it further.



An Overview:

Stage four of the PWC job application procedure is the aptitude test. During this process, you will be undertaking numerical, verbal and inductive reasoning tests. A mixture of two or more reasoning tests depending on the service line you have applied to.

PWC Aptitude Test Preparation:

After choosing a convenient date from the options offered to you by the company, you will generally have from 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? If you can demonstrate the required ambition and endeavour, we will give you the support you need to land your dream job.




PWC Aptitude Test Competency Criteria:

PWC designed their aptitude test to assess you against the company’s key competencies criteria. The test will be timed, so you must be able to deal with pressure. Green Turn’s training schemes will ensure that you are totally confident and prepared for any eventuality. Imagine the embarrassment and panic caused by ‘freezing up’ during the PWC aptitude test and you’ll realise just how important this is.


PWC do list key competencies criteria on their website, but 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.




PWC Aptitude Test Details:

The relevant software has been developed for the company by SHL and Cut-e Cooperation, well renowned global HR consultancies that publish various psychometric tests for PWC worldwide. All candidates will take a numerical reasoning test, but others will be split between verbal and inductive reasoning depending on the service line they have applied to. The three sections of the test are as follows:


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 18 questions (6x3) that must all be answered within 25 minutes. You are required to showcase your ability with figures, your analytical skills and sensible time management.


B. The verbal reasoning tests 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 30 questions (10x3) that must all be answered within 18 minutes. You are expected to demonstrate your business judgement and problem-solving skills.


C. In the inductive reasoning tests, you will observe symbolic patterns in a sequence of graphical scenarios. You must find a pattern then apply your theory by checking if that logic fits with the next set of figures. There will be one question per scenario, resulting in 40 questions that must be answered within 25 minutes. You are expected to demonstrate your logical reasoning powers. 


PWC will not furnish you with an informational booklet in preparation for this stage, so you need the relevant information and guidance well in advance. Do not assume that you can successfully guess your way through the aptitude test, as you will be sorely mistaken.  




PWC Aptitude Test Results:

Your performance during the aptitude test will be retained on a permanent record and used during PWC’s final deliberations to decide whether or not you have got the job. It’s entirely possible to get through this stage by attaining a passing grade yet fail to secure employment when PWC recruiters take a look at your collective performances over the whole application process.


PWC grade your ability on each stage between 1 point and 5. It is assumed by PWC 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 take a job test without having been properly prepared by Green Turn.
