Hi,

No, Bain has a written case that many candidates find easier than PST.

I've uploaded an example here:

Bain Written Case has 2 parts:

  • Case information you have to go through
  • Slides with missing info you have to complete

Since each question in a written case has an exact correct answer, the success criteria is the number of questions answered correctly.

Best,

Vlad

Thanks Vlad.

Is this written test always given in all offices? If not, do you have an idea whether this is given in the Dubai Bain office?
