KPMG Online Tests

Original Post

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

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.

Hi Vmil, were the practise questions that come up by the assessmentday website similar to what comes up in the actual KPMG online test? I'm wondering whether to go with greenturn or assessmentday

Thanks,
Sunny

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!

Can anyone give any tips for the KPMG online tests? I failed terribly last year!

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!

Just did the verbal, answered 31 questions and left 9 blank, someone mentioned about quality and I just decided not to rush the last few ones. =) Will update you with results after the numerical reasoning =))
