I’m going for the aptitude tests (I applied for Operations) at MS on friday (8th of jan).
Can someone please tell me what the 3 announced aptitude tests are ? I know the first 2 are numerical and verbal tests but what is the 3rd one ?
Btw, Happy New Year ! x

@ A.B

Did you apply for the Feb intake in London and is your status in career website “No Status Available”? Good Luck for tests.

#13

@A.B: I have the aptitude tests as well on Friday. I am the same as you and I don’t know what the third test is? If you find out please let me know as I would really appreciate it. Good luck on Friday anyway! :slight_smile:

@akoo: thanks. I applied for the summer internship. (not too sure what the february intake is, is it graduate programme ?).

I have the same aptitude tests for ops tommorow. I think the third test is to check accuracy… just what I made of the email they sent anyway. I’m going to go check out SHL later tonight and see what I can find, that’s what MS recommend doing anyway.

I take it we don’t have interviews tommorow, right? Seems a lot of travelling just to do tests, but then the email certainly does not mention interviews at all.

#16

what do you think the aptitude tests will be like? i heard they maybe negatively marked. Do you think they will be any harder than other tests?

#17

So wasn’t too bad in the end I don’t think.

For future reference for people looking it’s just a basic test to begin with where you have to match a number / letter combination to the exact same one out of 5 options, getting progressively harder with longer number / letter strings. Followed by standard SHL verbal and numerical tests.

#18

Can i ask what you wore to the test day? As far as I know it’s just tests and some presentation/tour so I thought smart casual would be ok since I have uni straight after as well. What were most people wearing?

#19

I got an email to say I passed the tests on friday, now a phone interview before final assessment centre today. Anyone else hear back?

Wear a suit with no tie.
