Does anyone have any experience on this test? Is this a regular SHL Verbal Reasoning test? Apparently the test will run for about 10 mins, so not sure what they will test actually.
Oliver Wyman Critical Reasoning Test
No, the Oliver Wyman is not a standard SHL test - it is one of the toughest maths/logic tests in my experience. The biggest difficulty typically is getting through the questions in the time given - although the 10 minutes you're quoting doesn't sound right to me! It should be 20 minutes for 30 multiple choice questions, unless things have changed this year.
Here's a helpful page on PrepLounge about the assessment: https://www.preplounge.com/en/tests/oliver-wyman-test
And a helpful video that covers a few (actual!) Oliver Wyman test questions from previous years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fSYgKESqFA
Finally, the GMAT is anecdotally very similar, so you can practice a few of those to guage how you'd fare.
Best of luck!
