Hello! I would follow these steps:
- Population calculation: if it´s not given, stimation based on your knowledge of other european cities.
- Different evacuation ways: cars, trains, buses, etc. How many people can each of those transportation means evacuate? (e.g., not everyone has a car, there are limited buses and trains, etc.)
- Bottlenecks: the total capacity of those transportation means is the "ideal" scenario in which there are no issues such as traffic jams, etc.
Always bear in mind that here there is not a right or wrong answer, and they are not looking for a candidate that only deviates X% from the solution they have calculated. What is being tested here is you ability to synthetise, be creative, estimate, etc.
Hope it helps!

I was until recently a senior consultant in SKP.
They usually can have 2 math tests, 1 as a first screening test and 1 during the final round aka recruiting day.
Both are fairly similar however the first one is longer and more towards math (e.g. ratios) while the second one more towards logic.
PM for details!

ich hatte vor vielen Jahren mal ein Interview bei Simon-Kucher in Bonn, kann daher nur dazu Aussagen treffen:
- Wurde viel nach Personal fit gefragt?
- Etwas weniger im Vergleich zu MBB+
- Waren die Cases intensiv mit Fokus auf Pricing/Umsatz?
- Ja, sehr!
- Wer waren die Interviewer? Nur Senior Berater oder auch Partner?
- Wurde es an dem Interview-Tag entschieden oder gibt es auch eine zweite Runde?
- Es gab nur eine Runde, aber die Entscheidung wurde trotzdem erst ein paar Tage später mitgeteilt
- War der Mathe-Test schwer?
- Nein, nur Grundrechenarten (wichtig: Prozentrechnen, schneller Umgang mit Brüchen bis 1/20, Dreisatz, lineare Algebra, Zehnerpotenzen)
Hoffe, das hilft! :)
