KPMG Online Tests
I just did my numerical & verbal tests for a internship at KPMG. They use cubiks as their test provider, and just wondering if anyone knows if they used it last year, and what the pass mark/threshold is? For example, with the banks I know they generally only look at those in top 25-30% for test scores.
Honestly, it was a really difficult test. I prepared using Cubix and other free practices but the difficulty level is far from those practices. The time constraint is really short. I am waiting for my result now. Wish me luck guys
hello everyone i just gave my verbal and the status shows your application is beeing considered we will be in touch with you shortly. But i heard people get there results on the spot is that true for everyone?
I got through to the Assessment Centre, still waiting for a date though. The telephone interview was the same as the ones discussed here - reading all threads about KPMG, listing the questions, answering them and (most importantly) practice them verbally prepared me sufficiently to get to the assessment centre. If any questions, I am more than happy to answer =)
Hi Sunny, sorry for the late reply. I found the assessment day pretty useful. To be honest, none of the tests I did in advance were exactly the same as the official ones, but I prepared with Assessmentday.co.uk scoring roughly 85-95% just before taking the real test and I managed them. I do about 4-5-6 tests before doing a real test and I find personally this amount to be enough to be able to pass the tests.
With the same logic, I have passed the verbal, also PwC's, CSC's and other companies I have applied for. Bare in mind English is not my primary language and I am still able to pass the tests.
Do some practice on the two tests, I did assessmentday.co.uk ones.
Focus on right answers, not on speed, as I mentioned before I atempted Verbal - 31 of 40 and was in 59 percentile (better than 59% of the people that took the test. On numerical I answered only 17-18 out of 24 attempted and I got in to the 69th percentile.
Also what I do is read the question first and then look only for the info asked in the question, because personally I found myself wasting a lot of time if I focus on the table first to familiarize and then start reading the question - this tip made the difference for me!
I passed the tests! To sum up, verbal - 31 atempted out of 40 - 59th percentile. Numerical - 17 or 18 attempted out of 24 - 69 percentile.
Focus on quality (right answers/attempted ratio) especially for the numerical - you have 8 options to choose from - guessing impossible! Good luck!
