Hi Anonymous,

It appears you might be right - having just checked with a friend who applied in 2016. This is the email he received:

"The test lasts 20 minutes and has a maximum of 30 questions, however you are not expected to answer all questions in the time allotted. You may find a pen, paper, or a calculator helpful. You also have the opportunity to try a practice test beforehand. Further instructions for the test are available online prior to starting it. To access the test, return to your online application at https://www.oliverwyman.gtios.com and follow instructions."

Thanks for your answer, Alessandro

Sorry, I should've clarified: The reason why I am asking is that I found contradicting information online: a few say 20 questions in 30 mins and some 30 questions in 20 mins.

I've seen this site on WSO but it is from 2013 and seems perhaps a bit outdated

Oliver Wyman Case: Setting up a Wine Cellar

Solved 60.6k times
Oliver Wyman Case: Setting up a Wine Cellar I’m thinking about setting up a wine cellar in my basement. The way I see it, shelf space would be divided into two sections: (1) a “drinking” section where I store bottles for my own consumption and (2) an “investment” section where I store bottles that I intend to sell at a profit after they appreciate in value several years down the line. The idea is to earn enough money with the “investment” section of the cellar in order to subsidize whatever I consume in the “drinking” section over time.   I'm obviously constrained by several things: the amount of money I am able to spend, the amount of wine I can (or want to) drink, the space available for the cellar, and so on.
