Hi, I had a telephone interview last week, and didn’t get through, but I think it was purely because of the little maths test they did which I completely failed despite getting through loads of numerical psychometrics and having a maths degree!! Anyway I was just completely unprepared for those types of questions so I’ll try and remember as much of the stuff as poss.

Ok so it began with stuff like:

Why accountancy?
Have you thought about any other careers?
What can you tell me about the firms we recruit for?

A few more but I can’t remember, possibly some of your average competency questions.

Then there was the maths test!!!

There were a few questions where he gave me a sequence of numbers and i had to say what came next, I would say quickly calculate the difference from each number to the next and you should see a pattern from that rather than just looking at the sequence given.

There was also a question that was something like what is 3.5% of 80.

And a question which asked you to add fractions with different denominators, this I found easy but some may not. so heres an example: What is 3/12 add 5/6? To add fractions you need the denominator to be the same so you just times the 2nd one by two and then add to get 13/12.

The other one I can remember was something like how many times does 13 go into 169.

By the way you get 20 seconds to answer each of these!

Then theres a spelling test with words like Millennium and Miscellaneous.

Good Luck!
