Do you know how it works to pass the PST from another office than London? I got invited to the PST but i'm studying abroad for a semester (very far from London) and they've told me they'd be in touch but it's been a week and nothing. Does anyone has similar experience of passing the PST somewhere else than in London? Thank you!

The PST is standard across offices. Feel free to contact McK London and remind them you are on an exchange program abroad; this isn't uncommon, they'll find a way to have you sit for the PST in the country where you are right now (or nearest office)

Try calling HR, they are probably just swamped.

The way it will work is that you'll go into the local office closest to you and complete it there with a member of local HR.

As a side comment - note that while PST is the same across global offices, some different offices actually have different time requirements. In London and most English speaking countries will have 1 hr, but a friend completing it in the Tokyo office had 2 hours to complete. However if you are ultimately applying to London, then London time restrictions will apply.

Good luck!

Yes, you can pass from any office. Why not simply writing them an e-mail / calling them?
