I was invited to do the McKinsey digital assessment test (Imbellus Test) as part of their process. I have been reading about this test and found that the most effective way to prepare was to play games :)

I also got the Imbellus test prep material from Preplounge. It's pretty awesome by the way!

I only have one question which I can't seem to find an answer for; During the test, everything is tracked (including mouse-clicks and everything) but what I would like to know is the following:

During the tutorial phase of the test where they explain everything about the game, is the time taken to familiarize yourself with the game factored in the final score ? Meaning, if I take 5 mins in the tutorial or spend 30 mins before entering the game, would that impact the scoring I will get?

Thank you for your responses and appreciate if you have any other insight I should be aware of.

Hi there,

Thanks for you kind words on the prep material ;)

In terms of your questions: the tutorial is not part of the assessment, thus it won’t impact your score.

In case you have any other questions, please feel free to PM me.
