applying for MBB in Germany

Anonymous A asked on May 24, 2019 - 2 answers

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?

This case is so rare that I doubt anyone can help you. It's totally your risk

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.
