When will you hear back from PST??

Anonymous A

Hi everyone,

I wrote the McKinsey PST earlier this week. Do you know how long does it take for them to get back to you?

Will you get a notification regardless whether you passed or failed?

Hi Anonymous,

I heard back from my recruiter within 1 hour after I finished the PST! I suppose it depends on the office, but you should hear from them within 1-2 days max.

Good luck!

Hi Anonymous,

you definately should expect a response regardless of your of your performance on the PST (whether good or not). It depends on the office and their workload/priorities at the time as it took two weeks for me to get feedback although recruiter had initially said that we would hear back by the very next day at the most.
