PwC (formerly PricewaterhouseCoopers) is one of the largest professional service businesses in the world, helping organisations and individuals with assurance, tax and advisory services.
With a presence in over 155 countries and employing over 280,000 people, PwC is a highly sought-after place of employment, with a competitive application process.
After using the platform for two weeks, I’ve never felt more prepared for an Aptitude test.Ethan used Practice Aptitude Tests to improve his situational judgement scores. Start your success story
If you’ve made it through the testing portion of the process, you’ll then be asked to take part in a ‘Career Conversation’ video interview.
This is your first real encounter with anyone at PWC, so it’s important to make a good first impression. Even though it’s over video, dressing smartly, remembering to speak clearly, and looking at the interviewer when you’re talking to them is key.
The video interview is your chance to sell yourself and show how passionate you are about a career with PwC. You may be asked why you want to work for PwC, what interests you about the role and other similar questions.
It’s recommended you have a paper and pen to hand as you’ll be given between 30–60 seconds after each question is asked to prepare a response. Demonstrating the key competencies and keeping your response to the point, while answering in detail, will be crucial to your success at this stage of the application.
Virtual assessment day
It’s the final stage of the process, so the Career Focus virtual assessment day is your last chance to show PwC why they should hire you.
The day will involve going to one of PwC’s offices and meeting various members of staff, as well as the following exercises:
- Written communication exercise. The written exercise will see how well you’re able to take instruction and follow a brief. Remember to demonstrate the key competencies you’re always being assessed on, and to keep your handwriting as legible as possible.
- Aptitude tests. Either new aptitude tests or a retake of the test you took previously, this is another chance for you to prove you can excel in numerical and logical reasoning.
- In-tray exercise. This could be an individual task, or one you have to perform as a group. Either way, it aims to determine how well you’re able to prioritise tasks and work efficiently under pressure.
- Presentation. The type of presentation you’ll do at this point in the assessment centre depends on which role you’re applying for. The good thing is you won’t have to prepare in advance: all the information you need will be included in the brief you’ll read before delivering your presentation.
It’s an achievement to make it this far. And if you do, your assessment will culminate in a one-on-one interview with a partner, manager or director.
The key focus for your potential employer is to determine whether you’d be a good fit for the role and to get evidence of your experience.
Try to remain calm, listen carefully to the questions and reply clearly and confidently.

Speed, speed, speed!
The questions are not challenging but you need a lot of practice to be able to complete the test in the given time. Overall, a great practice test.

All questions are graphical with complicated calculations. Could ask some other kind of numericals also.

Took me a second to realize I could see the percentage of each section in the graph on the first couple. Maybe add a little more instructions. Also not super confident that you understand how to do question 18.

I liked that it was relatable. Most tests just bring up various random mathematical problems but this had scenarios I could relate with.

It was indeed the best experience, very well prepared. Good to go. Thank you so much!

Don't waste time on a single question
I've wasted 5 minutes on question 2, then I had to rush through the rest. It's better to skip a difficult question and then go back to it at the end

How to calculate percentages
Only really tested 1 thing over and over; if you knew how to do the calculations quickly, it was easy.
