Dear user,
The analytical test is part of our recruiting process for all Consulting Analyst/ Junior Consultant/ Consultant entry levels.
As already said, time pressure might be an issue, so try to be fast. But I'm sure you can do it! The test is 90 minutes and has three parts. It's a "GMAT-style" reasoning test (multiple choice) and you are not allowed to use a calculator.

When I did the test at Roland Berger several years back, it was a classical IQ test, consisting of different parts. Not sure if still identical, but this is how it looked like:


1. Verbal Part
1.1 Complete incomplete sentences
1.2 Analogies (Hat:Head --> Shoe:?)
1.3 Finding categories (6 items are given, can be clubbed into 3 categries)

2. Numerical Part
2.1 Mental math, solving equations
2.2 Complete number sequences
2.3 Fill operators into given equations

3. Figural Part
3.1 put together disassembled figures
3.2 Turn dices
3.3 Matrices

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Sidi

Thanks! Could you elaborate more on 3.2 and 3.3?

I believe some of these resources might be helpful for you to practice:

1) GMAT Materials: practicing the quantitative parts of GMAT can help you brush up your analytical skills. The most useful part of GMAT, based on the RB questions I have seen, would be the "Integrated Reasoning" section. To find material to practice GMAT questions, you can download 2 free tests on the official GMAT website, and there are also a number of apps/services online with practice questions (e.g. GMAT Club, Gmat Pill, etc.)

2) Test appears similar to CEB/ SHL tests, so you can look for practice SHL test material. One way to prep, if you have time, is to make some dummy applications to investment banks, that automatically send you a math test to practice. This way you can practice questions in real conditions.

3) While it may be obvious, doing the prep on RB's website will obviously be useful and be the most accurate representation of the real test: https://survey.rolandberger.com/inq/s.app?A=9uYMF1Lh

Hi,

I've done it before, not the easiest. There is no calculator and it's like the GMAT. Time pressure is the major issue. Not sure if it's the same outside London. Practicing GMAT questions is probably your best bet.

Hope that helps.

Hi Anonymous,

from what I know the test is based on the talent q platform. You should be able to find talent q numerical and verbal to practice online. GMAT and SHL should also work for the preparation. There are three parts in the test: data interpretation, critical reasoning and problems solving.

Hope this helps,

Francesco

I just did the test.

Does anybody know whether there is a cutoff?

Also, as they sent me the test after assessing my application: does this mean that if I did average on the test I'll be directly rejected, or does my application as a whole still play a role?

Reach out to their HR. I know that those with first experience in consulting dont have to pass the analytical test

Just call HR, they should be able to provide you that information.

On a different note: how did you find out that RB's test is based on the Korn Ferry Talent q test?

Thanks
