BNP Paribas Numerical Reasoning Test

The multiple - choice BNP Paribas Numerical Test assesses your ability to evaluate, analyze, and interpret numerical information that will be provided to you in charts, graphs, and tables. You will have limited time to find a correct answer, so all the calculations like percentages, ratios, and basic arithmetic should be executed quickly and accurately. We know that you can do it, but If you really want to master the BNP Paribas Numerical Test - it can be easily learned through our online tests and video tutorials available on the website.

BNP Paribas Verbal Reasoning Test

The BNP Paribas Verbal Reasoning Test comprises of a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read and a set of questions matching the information provided in paragraphs. Your answer options will be True, False or Cannot Tell.

BNP Paribas Digital Interview

If you are invited for the BNP Paribas Video Interview you will be provided with an access to a platform that will record your responses.

BNP Paribas Business Interview / Assessment Centre

Congratulations! You made it to the last stage! Depending on the Graduate Programme you have chosen, you might be asked to attend a Business Interview or an Assessment Centre. Below we outlined some details that will be helpful with preparing for both scenarios:

BNP Paribas Business Interview

This will be a standard mix of competence and strengths-based interview. You are expected to give full answers with specific examples of your achievements, as well as show that you understand well what your role will be about, and what working at BNP Paribas means. Remember to show some enthusiasm and passion! You might undergo up to three interviews with a team manager, CEO, and members of the talent acquisition team.

BNP Paribas Assessment Centre

BNP Paribas Assessment Center is usually a mix of individual and group activities. The exercises will differ depending on the job position you are applying for, but make sure you are prepared for all scenarios.

Group Exercise

These exercises will vary, but the general skills that the assessors are looking for is a good balance between teamwork and leadership skills. You might want everyone in the room to see your great leadership skills, but approach the group exercise rather as a test of your collaborative and teamwork abilities than a show of a directorship. Most likely you will have a brief to read and discuss possible solutions with a group and then present a conclusion to the assessors. It is important to stick to your guns if you are convinced about your answers.

Case Study

BNP Paribas case study takes a form of a short presentation on a topic that you will be given a short time to prepare during the assessment center. After the presentation, you will be assessed further by the interviewers asking you questions regarding the topic of your presentation. If you are not a born speaker and feel like you could use a little bit more advice, you can check the Assessment Centre Guide, for more useful tips.
