I had taken part in the assessment centre Jan 2017 and thought I would advise you all throughout the day. Once you get there you will sit around and you should use this time to learn everyones name. Everyone there will be applying for different roles at different locations so do not worry about the competition. You start of with a written report, you are given two sides of A4 in 30 mins to complete. I advise you to start with an introduction outlining what the report will be on, the you will be given three options in which you should write about with the pros and cons in each paragraph and summarise with a conclusion/recommendation which is VITAL as you should advise on which option to take and why. The report was based on some music company and three options to expand the company. Then you will do your group exercise with around 5 other people where you are all given the same information and your own personal information piece in which you have 20 mins to evaluate the main info briefly but mainly your personal piece which will need to be contributed so look at that first, make sure you get your figures right. In my piece we had a budget to calculate which wasn’t hard and work your profit from your personal statement. Our project was based on tea,coffee and hot chocolate and our personal pieces were countries which supply a certain one of these 3 drinks. You then have 30 mins to discuss your options and come to a conclusion on which you wish to invest in. Key is to keep track of time and don’t speak too much but also don’t speak too LITTLE as you need to shine. Then you do your psychometric tests again which is numerical and the non-verbal one which is to do with whats going to be next in the sequence. Your day is then done, good luck :slight_smile:

when was your assessment centre


#293

Hi all,
Could somebody kindly run through the type of calculations asked in the group exercise please?
I attended an AC for Pwc much time ago, and failed due to this - but I have forgotten the exact calculations asked (I remember something about payback). Any advice would be much appreciated :slight_smile:


#294

Around 3 weeks ago


#295

No payback period is required. You are just asked to calculate your budget figure. It gives the %s for this.


#296

Does anybody have any inclination as to what I am to expect in my Pwc AC next week, Im not entirely sure what the written exercise will involve, if anybody could help me that would be excellent!

Many thanks


#297

Hey! I was wondering which group exercise scenarios and written report case study everyone has had??? Thanks :slight_smile:


#298

If you were like me, with a tight deadline on the online tests, you should definitely try a website which helped me a bunch!


Hopefully you all will find it good too :slight_smile:


#299

Hi Jo,

I’ve just informed that I passed the pwc assessment centre and I’m waiting for the arrangement of the partner interview. Could you give me some tips on the final interview, and how long did you wait for attending it?

Regards,

Yan
