Does anyone know what the McKinsey Pre-assessment is?

Anonymous A asked on Oct 07, 2018 - 2 answers

Has anyone heard of the McKinsey pre-assessment that they do in office? It's not the PST and it's not a case, and I was told that there's nothing to prepare. Has anyone been through this process? Please let me know. Thank you so much!

Hi A,

It depends on a position. Pre-assessment could mean 2 things:

  1. Excel-test with basic formulas
  2. GMAT/GRE format test

Kind regards,
