Has anyone recently done the Oliver Wyman Numerical Reasoning Test and/or knows how many questions there are and how much time you have?
How many questions are in the Oliver Wyman Numerical Reasoning Test and how much time do you have?
It appears you might be right - having just checked with a friend who applied in 2016. This is the email he received:
"The test lasts 20 minutes and has a maximum of 30 questions, however you are not expected to answer all questions in the time allotted. You may find a pen, paper, or a calculator helpful. You also have the opportunity to try a practice test beforehand. Further instructions for the test are available online prior to starting it. To access the test, return to your online application at https://www.oliverwyman.gtios.com and follow instructions."
Thanks for your answer, Alessandro
Sorry, I should've clarified: The reason why I am asking is that I found contradicting information online: a few say 20 questions in 30 mins and some 30 questions in 20 mins.
I've seen this site on WSO but it is from 2013 and seems perhaps a bit outdated
You can find the answer to your questions (and more) on the WSO post: https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/oliver-wyman-numerical-reasoning-test
Which companies are currently using written tests ?
All major firms like McKinsey, BCG and Bain use tests to assess a candidate's analytical skills. However the design of those tests can differ a lot.
Written tests such as the PSTs
Top tier consulting firms have started using PSTs to test for in-depth analytical skills needed to be successful as a consultant on a day-to-day basis.
