applying for MBB in Germany

Anonymous A asked on May 24, 2019

Hello, guys!

5-6 months ago i applied for Mckinsey in France (where i am from) for a research analyst and i failed PST test. Now if i apply in Germany for whole different position and get invited to take a PST test. Can i take PST again in France? Or local HR will reject my test scores, since there is 2 years ban. Or ban is applied only to specific offices?

What i am trying to ask is that if Germany invites me to take PST, can i take it here in France without having to worry about being rejected by local HR? Do they have such right?

If they invited you already, you may want to take the test and see what happens. The 2-year limit was something they need to check and make a decision before calling you to test.
