Hi all,

I'm prearing for the online case test for BCG now. I was wondering what a good score is. I've been told that this is not decisive but it is good to have a target in mind.

There are about 23 questions and 45 minutes.

:)

Hello,

The score is just one of the elements to evaluate your profile and take a decision.
Anyway, HRs told me that a very good score would be 80% of correct answers (in this case 19).

Best,

I confirm you should set 80% as the goal for your practice tests.

Hello!

I don´t honestly know the threshold -and I doubt that none that is not in BCG Recruiting can give you a number you can trust-.

However, the application is reviewed "as a whole", considering not only the test but all aspects of it. Hence, even with a non-great test, you can be considered for interview rounds.

Hope it helps! Cheers,

Clara

Hi,

BCG doesn't usually use the online tests as a way of filtering candidates before the interviews (unlike McK), thus an average performance would not be a dealbreaker if you perform well in the interviews. Having said that, you would be considered as a good performer if you get 70% of the questions correct.

Best,

Deniz
