Bank of America Merrill Lynch test guides

This type of psychometric test usually comprises of 20 questions to be answered in 20 minutes and is designed to measure your numerical abilities. They relate to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and chose from a set of multiple choice answers. You will be asked to sit the test again at the assessment day. BAML use Kenexa as their test provider.

You will be given a brief which you will then have to read and will be expected to present a 10 minute presentation followed by 10 minutes of questions from the assessors. Researching the company and how they do business is highly advised beforehand and will help with this part of the assessment. You will be assessed on your analysis of the brief as well as your presentation skills.

You will be given a brief involving a fictitious company which you will read and then discuss questions and their solutions with the group. You will be expected to demonstrate good team-work skills. You’ll be assessed as to how you perform within the group so ensure that you strike a balance between dominating the group and being too passive. It is important to be able to work in a group and this is what the assessors are looking for.
