Bain & Company test guides

These tests are designed to measure your numerical abilities and relate to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and chose from a set of multiple choice answers. These will be timed so it is important to practice in advance.

This test comprises of questions relating to sequences of shapes and patterns. In each question there will be a missing step and you will be provided with a number of answers to choose from. These are designed to test your logical reasoning as well analytical and problem-solving skills.

There will be a number of interviews for the Bain and Co assessment process – including a general interview and a more specific one focussed on a case study. You will be presented with a case study and be expected to analyse the issues and provide solutions to these. This exercise is to look at how you approach problems or issues within business and what solutions you offer. There is no right or wrong answer and so the best way to prepare for this type of exercise is to fully understand the values and background of the company. As well as undertaking this exercise in the form of an interview, you may also participate in a written one as well.
