McKinsey first round coming up soon.

Hi all, I am preparing for consulting interviews for summer analyst positions and I have been using various materials online. Meeting with OW consultant a few days ago he mentioned that in UK interviews there's less emphasis on framework and more math and market sizing compared to the US (which is where most of the prep comes from). Any input on this?

I wouldn't agree that you have the kind of difference which is being claimed there. Bear in mind there is a massive cross-pollonation of consultants from the US and the UK in particular, so the differences are larger between firms and sometimes even between indiviudal offices.

I will say the major Consultancies have noticed that basic maths is often a problem for a surprising number of top UK graduates, so it is something which you will see tested at least once during your interviews. I'm not sure you'd really notice the difference from the perspective of a candidate from the US though.
