Hi, I am applying for new BA position of Mckinsey Tokyo. I send email with my resume attached and got an invitation mail to SHL test.

It passes 3 days since I took the SHL test; and I did not receive any mail regarding the result. Feels like I am rejected but want confirmation that I failed this time at least.

Do the consulting firm send email about the result(good or bad) to all candidates or they send it to who pass the tesr or interview?

Hi Soyeon,

Don't worry! This does not mean you were rejected.

Companies usually send out the SHL test 1-2 days after the candidate applies, and forms part of the pre-screen. This means that nobody at your firm has reviewed your application yet. The results of the SHL test will be used together with your Resume/Cover Letter to review your application.

Therefore, once you complete your test, it is not at all unusual for there to be a larger wait time to hear back - this is the time it takes McKinsey to review your application. The firm won't respond with the results of your test - they will just reply once they have made a decision whether they would like to interview you or not.

Good luck and don't worry!

Hi Soyeon,

I agree with Alessandro that it usually takes more than a couple of days to get results for a emailed test in consulting. As for your second question, I never heard of a case when MBB did not inform candidates whether they passed the step or not, thus they will likely let you know in any case which was the result.
