BP Tests

BP (British Petroleum) is a leading international energy company. It has pledged to cut oil and gas production by 40% by 2030, shifting its focus to be a force for the evolution of clean, renewable energy.

Prepare yourself for leading employers

Video/phone interview

The penultimate step in the application process will be a phone or video interview. This is often considered the most daunting part of the process, as it can be difficult to establish a quick rapport with someone you can’t necessarily see.

During the course of the interview, you will be required to demonstrate key competencies and technical knowledge required for the role, with evidence-based examples.

The best way to prepare for this is to do a practice run with a friend or a family member (i.e. someone that you feel comfortable with). This way, you will feel more comfortable when it comes to the real thing.

It is also a good idea on a practical level to make sure that your phone or PC/laptop is fully charged, you have a strong internet/phone signal, and that you are in a quiet space where neither you nor the interviewer will be distracted by any outside noise or disturbance.

Complementary to your competency-based phone or video interview is a technical interview, which will involve role play. This role play exercise will assess your response to a typical business scenario, so it’s a good idea to research as much as you can on the company, and consider what different scenarios could come up during the course of the job role that you have applied for prior to this part of the application process.

Strong acting skills are definitely not a priority, so when you are practicing for the role play, direct your focus on thinking quickly and practically on your feet.

Assessment centre

Finally, visiting an assessment centre for a day of in-person individual and team exercises will need to be completed, depending on the role that you have applied for.

The following exercises may come up at your assessment day, so be prepared to face some, or all of these: a group exercise, a presentation exercise, and a reflective review.

Being part of a group exercise is a great opportunity to show your ability to work as a member of a team. It will be a problem-solving assignment, based on a fictional business scenario.

You will be working with other candidates attending the assessment centre. During the given time period, all candidates will be observed by representatives from BP.

The individual presentation involves a case study that you will be given to read and review. This case study will focus on the area of business that you are applying for, and will typically require a decision and an explanation of it.

You should also be prepared to confidently back your decision, as you may need to take questions on it.

Your presentation should last around 10–15 minutes, and will be a chance to demonstrate your ability to comprehend information given, as well as how confidently and clearly you can express yourself.

A reflective review is usually placed within the final part of the day, usually taking the form of a relaxed discussion with a BP representative about how the candidate felt about their individual performance over the course of the day at the centre.

    BP English language test

    I am pleased with this test, as it forces you to work faster and more accurately with numbers. It can help you in emergency situations when the speed and accuracy are all that is required. However the is a one big problem: it is difficult to take given test with big diagrams.

    There really is no time

    I liked the questions, they made me think fast, I had no idea what to do for most of them. I think try and provide the data and the question in one space, I had to repeatedly scroll between them and lost my train of thought and some time there.
