Hazell Carr numerical and logical test

2 November 2009 - 11:55am

Anyone did the tests for Hazell Carr actuarial trainee scheme? They said it will be a numerical and logical test, but no other details were given. If anyone took the test, I would much appreciate some details about the structure of the test, type of questions, etc.

Hey guys, how did you do? Any final interviews? I've got one coming up soon - any pointers?

Hi Ritchie,

The physics one could be answered with A level physics yes, but more importantly you just need to think it through first - don't go straight to the textbook answer in your head :) You'll be fine!

Hey guys, I have this assessment centre on friday. I was wondering if I could get a little more info about what level the test is pitched at? For example would knowledge of A-level physics be enough to answer the physics question?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

So...how did it go? :)

Nope, no questions of that sort saln1. It's literally just an hour test in a room on your own. You may not have the same questions as I did though...but the questions I gave should give you an indication of the type they ask.

My email said exactly the same as yours I imagine:

I am pleased to confirm your Interview appointment details, as follows:

For the position: Hazell Carr Actuarial Trainee, Reference number: XPAY341 Date: 04 Nov 2009 Start Time: 13:45 Approximate End Time: 15:15 Interviewer: Mr X Location: Xafinity Reading - Kings Road

I never met Mr X (name removed in case he reads this and I eventually apply for a job there again!). There were just 3 graduate starters who'd been there a month - there was an actuary in the room for a few second but that was just to boot us out of the meeting room because he had it booked :)

The graduates were very nice people, and they answered any questions we gave them well.

Good luck...let us know how it went :)

Thanks Gatecra5her! I have my assessment centre this Thursday, however I was expecting an interview with Mr. X judging by the email they sent me!

Is there any way I should prepare beforehand? I was expecting to go over my compatency questions, but it looks like there is no need at this stage!
