I did the McKinsey PST in London a few weeks ago but have not heard anything since. I know people who have received interview inviations and also rejections. What should I do in this situation?

Well, why don't you just reach out to the recruiting team and follow up? Honestly, sometimes I really don't get the questions that are asked in this forum.

cheers, Sidi

Sidi is right. What you guys need to understand is the HR team doesn't make the decision, so they are a fairly neutral party and you do not risk anything by contacting them (politely of course) and asking. They are used to it, and will share whatever information they have / are allowed to share.

Good luck

Write/call them. HR are not decision makers, but there is no decision maker for PST - there is a cut off score and you either passed or not. Niether HR nor any consultant will have an input on this decision.

Agree with the guys. You will be making tons of phone calls as a consultant and you need to learn how to get your information.
