Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has heard of Pymetrics online assessment that is being offered, as far as I am aware, in German office. I have never heard of it so if anyone can enlighten me, preferably consultants in one of the German offices that would be very helpful! Thank you

Hello!

Not only in the German offices, this is pretty common - I did something very similar with Bain myself back in the day-.

I would strongly recomment you practice it with the Integrated Reasoning part of the GMAT exam.

There are free exams in the internet that you can use for practice (the one of LBS MBA page, Verits prep, as well as some free trials for courses such as the one of The Economist (https://gmat.economist.com/)

The (old) McKinsey PST, BCG Online Test, Bain SOVA test, etc. are all quite similar so leverage resources across all of them.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Pymetrics is the test that not only Bain but in some offices use.

It's a kind of psychology/ psychometric driven test where your cognitive treats are tested. So the following aspects like your attention, how fast you make a decision, what is your risk tolerance, your judgment. Just an example, you will be shown different colored balloons, and when a green balloon is popped up, you do nothing and when the red balloon is popped up you press Enter, randomly these balloons will be popped up to see whether you would be able to focus. it's like 2-3 minutes games and 10-15 min depending on the test conducted in this kind of test.


There is no specific preparation required. It's a game test.
