Bain test

Eugene asked on May 08, 2019
Let's practice cases. I have several good Bain cases that I got through.

Guys, who knows how Bain test looks?

They say that it is like GMAT quantitative part, but what exactly? Which exactly part? Can there be questions on coordinate geometry o statistics for example? Can you give me any clue what to expect?

Thank you

for the Bain test you should primarily focus on the critical reeasoning, data sufficiency and math problem-solving questions of the GMAT.

Also, in the resource below (scroll down to bottom of page) you will find 5 sample tests from the Brazil office of Bain, 2 business cases and 3 analytical tests:

Hi Eugene,

if you are referring to the test for the AC position in London, until the end of last year it was structured in two parts. The first part is related to a personality test. The second is related to logical, numerical and verbal reasoning sections. Logical and numerical are SHL-style, unlike the other parts.

Bain also has a different test in South America, also divided into two parts. The first part is GMAT-style with critical reasoning, data sufficiency and problem solving. The second part is business-case-related with multiple choices, somehow similar to the BCG potential test.

The tests vary by office, it is not a global test system like at McKinsey.

Which office are you applying to?

I'm applying to Warsaw office. Any hints? — Eugene on May 08, 2019
