I had my AC for this role, I have attended several AC to date and I personally believed that this one went the best out of all of them. When I arrived there there was about 20-25 people in waiting for the AC.
There were 4 activities throughout the day:
1 Group Logic task - 40min, there are 6 people in the group (we stayed in the same small group throughout the day), the objective is to work together as each of you has slightly different information on their task sheets in order to solve a puzzle.
2 Group problem solving task - you have around 30 minutes, and you as a group have to organise an event for your manager. The manager steps in half way through, and firstly tells you that you first choose option is not available anymore, but then gives you the opportunity to speak to him and clarify any of the possible options.
3 Presentation about IBM - 30 minuets, standard thing, what is IBM etc… I found is lightly boring as I did my research about IBM before for hand.
4 IPAT tests 10 questions in 22 minutes, no calculator allowed. - I found them ok, but I had to guess two as couldn’t work them out.
On completion we left the place, and by the time I got back home I had a email in my Inbox saying that I got rejected.
It was a bizzar experience for me, as we believed, as a team that it went really well, we got a long well, finish all tasks with time to spare which gave us time to reflected on our performance or verified our results in case of the logic task to make sure that we did them correctly…
That’s my experience
