Hi all, 

I've noticed in every application cycle I really struggle with passing the online testing stage. The tests that I struggle with the most are 1. Imbellus/PwC Unlocked/Pymetrics style 2. generic numerical/logic tests. For every single (bar one) application I have always failed at this stage. 

I have previously done over 20 sets of mock numerical/logic tests as well as  2 GMAT prep books. I have also bought and studied from guides such as McKinsey Imbellus Solve Game Secrets on Prep lounge. 

I'm fairly sure that my problem lies with my low scores for these tests as I have had my CV and cover letter reviewed by 3 different coaches and I have yet to stopped/failed when taking only the aptitude test.

I need advice into what other ways I can use to improve my scores for when I apply for a graduate role this autumn. Also, are there any coaches or tutors who could help teach me on how to pass these tests?

Hi there,

Sorry to hear about the rejections.

It is difficult to comment without knowing more about your performance. The reasons could be related to any of the following:

  • Not finishing in time
  • Wrong math
  • Misunderstanding the questions
  • Lack of familiarity with the format (eg – BCG Chatbot)
  • Pressure due to time constraint

Also, many tests are now quite different (eg Imbellus Solve vs BCG Chatbot), therefore the issue may not always be the same.

For the Imbellus and BCG Chatbot specifically please feel free to reach out, I would be happy to give you some tips.

For the BCG Chatbot, you can also check the following article with 10 key tips to perform well:

Hi there, 

sorry to hear about the struggle. If you are invited to the tests, I would guess your CV and Cover letters are fine. Now the question is if your low result of the test is linked to math and logical thinking or is rather a result of stress. Have you mocked any of these tests, including GMAT on your own? What result did you obtain? I think it would be important to nail down what your problem is as it needs a different solution. If it is linked to skills and no stress I am sure most of the coaches, can help you.

Hi there,

If you've already tried it yourself and can't get past it then you definitely need a coach!
