    Written Test for consulting

    100cases Actively preparing for Mckinsey & AT Kearney MBB written case Written test
    Most recent answer on Mar 08, 2021
    <p>Hi, I am currently applying to sustainability consulting. They invite me to online test (after cv screening). They said it's 2 hour test and it is written test with topics related to the position details. The position details talk a lot about energy related topics. Didnt mention about excel (just mention about google suite and Ms word).</p> <p>Based on this, what is your best guess regarding the test ? I expect it will either be energy related case, excel or aptitude test. Any thought will be appreciated</p> <p>Note: The test will be tomorrow so I have no chance asking HR unfortunatelly.</p>
    Hi there, Hard to say without seeing the specific wording. It could either be a written case OR an online assessment. My best guess is a written case. I recommend the following: Remember that most casing tips ap ... (read entire answer)

    Bain Bain & Company written case
    Most recent answer on Mar 01, 2021
    <p>Bain, for example, now gives out one-hour written case and asks candidates to review a client's deck and comes up with a deck on recommendations. I have made many slides at work but hardly remember a time I completed a recommendation deck for clients in an hour.

Their 1st round is the written case in which a booklet consisting of heavy Data is provided and both deductive and Quantitative questions have to answered based on the data.

    Roland Berger second round interview: Written case

    BCG Case Interview Roland Berger Written written case
    Most recent answer on Mar 01, 2021
    <p>Hi,</p> <p>I am wondering if someone here has some experience or tips about second round interview at Roland Berger. I have been told that I should expect a written case: some data and material is given, I will have 1 hour to prepare on my own, and then I have to present to the partners. Does anyone has experience with such a case? How should the presentation be? I guess it shouldn't be like the conclusion of the general cases, 1-2 minutes, is that right?<br> Any tips and materials for the preparation of such cases (apart from practicing normal cases which I do) is very appreciated</p>
    Hi Anonymous, the presentation at the end usually takes 10-15 minutes - thus yes, it should be more articulate than the usual final conclusion for cases. I would recommend you to focus on 5 areas to crack a presenta ... (read entire answer)

    <p>Hi Everyone, </p> <p>I just had my written case interview with a principal at A.T. Kearney. <br> As part of case presentation I did put in my recommendations along with evidence/reasoning, however, during my Q&amp;A there was some feedback provided that made me re-think one of recommendation (and change it). </p> <p>Now, does changing a recommendation during the Q&amp;A look positive? </p> <p>Can someone put in their thoughts?</p> <p>Thanks!</p>
    Hi Ankit, as Sidi mentioned, it really depends on which was the original recommendation, the reasons why you decided to change it and how you communicated the change. Sometimes the interviewer may challenge you with ... (read entire answer)
