I've been told that McKinsey in the EMEA region is phasing out the PST in favor of SHL tests. Can anyone confirm this?
McKinsey phasing out PST in favor of SHL
McKinsey indeed moved from PST to SHL in some countries in Europe (eg Italy) although not in all of them; in other regions such as the Middle East and South-East Asia it still uses the PST. I would recommend to verify with HR the current status for the geography interesting for you.
Hope this helps,
I took the SHL with Mckinsey African Delivery Hub when I applied in 2016.
In Colombia they have switched from PST to Imbellus AI game.
I took SHL last month in US.
Took the PST recently for McK in the Middle East.
To my knowledge they still use PST to phase out candidates
