Your task will be to analyse the information with your teammates and come up with solutions. Enhance your understanding of this type of exercise with our full-length practice tests here.

Written Exercise

Applicants to banker positions, in particular, can expect a written exercise. In this exercise, which also focuses on a case study, you are asked to develop the result from the group exercise further by answering a series of questions. You then discuss your written answers with an assessor. Depending on the intended audience of your written piece, you may need to adapt your style. Looking at the different styles available to you in advance will help you improve the quality of your answers, and improve your confidence when you come to present your findings. JobTestPrep’s written exercises pages offer guidance on how to approach a variety of written exercises. The questions you can expect to discuss cover the following points: Do you think you showed any leadership? What was your contribution? Did you correct anyone? Have you ever had a similar experience?
