UBS Assessment Centre (URGENT ADVICE PLEASE!)

UBS
#1

I have been invited to UBS assessment centre the coming Wednesday.
It will be really helpful and really appreciate if anyone can share with me their experience with UBS assessment centre?

I am particularly concern with the case study presentation and group exercise. Can I please get advice on how to prepare with only 2 days left?

Also with the numerical test, SHL only has one paper available to practice, does anyone know where else i can get practice on UBS numerical test?

CHEERS!

Hey Minnie Mouse, from my experience of the UBS asessment center they dont allow you to progress to the afternoon interviews, casetudy etc if you dont pass the morning numerical test. So make sure you ace that. ITs incredibly easy, they give you 35 mins to finish 40 questions. Make sure you work through the questions as quickly as possible without wasting time taking a breather or something. You want to be among the people that either finsih or do 35+ questions

The Group excercise, is something like they’ll give you a business scenario, and as a group you have to come up with a solution to the problem. Make sure you show early leadership i.e just try to structure the whole excercise at the start brainstrom, swot etc and ask everyone their opinions. Make sure everyone doesnt go unheard. Google it, there’s lots of stuff about techniques for Group excercises.

Case study is the one where you are on your own. This is probably harder as they’ll pick on you and drill you after your presentation. Make sure you structure your presenatation well so they can follow it. i.e swot again. Again there’s stuff on the intenet about this. Interviews they mostly blab through your cv and ask you standard competencies

Hi Egoneo,

Thank you for your advice… really helpful^^ juz wanna ask you for the numerical test, it’s the SHL ones right? do you know where else I could get some practice from?

can i know what was your case study topic on? I am not sure how the question for the case study will be like…

Hey Egoneo

Thanks for the useful info.
I wanted to know more about the presentation, not the topic, but rather the structure they expect and the number of slides that have to be prepared. Would be great if you could shed some light on this. Cheers.

@ MinniMouse, wikijob website has 2 numerical style tests which are very similar to the shl tests you’ll get. Didnt really have anywhere else to pracetice apart from the shl website but trust me, its easy enough that you dont need to practice that much before hand.

if i remember correctly it was a 10-20 min presentation, for the life of me i cant remember the topic(it was last year). Some business scenario that you had to come up with a solution for. Swot analysis did the trick for me. Maybe 3 or 4 slides is more than enough. You dont want to overload them with information. And keep it reasonably simple that they can follow it. They’re looking at your presentation skills as well as your ability to deal under pressure i.e they are gonna probe you about your proposals.

My advice…pass the tests first worry about the other stuff later.

#11

Thanks loads Egoneo!! can i know wat’s the passing mark for the test?

#12

there isnt really one i think, rather they only want to take a certain percentage of people i.e if they invite 25 people, the only want the top 13, which was the case for us.

#13

Egoneo, what about the questions what we will be asked after the case study presentation? can you please give me some examples of the questions?

#14

Hi guys,

I’m applying for UBS n have a few questions to ask you about.

Firstly, in the employment part, you are given some space to write about your responsibilities/ additional information for each employment. USB don’t give u the word limit so I’m wondering how many words I’m expected to write in there?

Secondly, the same question for the open questions part, how many words u r supposed to write?

thank you very much in advance.

Cheers
