KPMG has various aptitude tests you will be asked to take when you apply for a position in Asia. Learn about KPMG's different assessment tests below and get prepared for them to ensure your success.
There are three different KMG tests you must pass during your application: deductive reasoning, numerical reasoning, and verbal reasoning. In Asia, KPMG uses tests provided by cut-e (Aon), so it’s worthwhile to know where you are applying before you start preparing for any test.
On the KPMG deductive reasoning test, you are presented with a 4x4 grid containing several numbers. Each number appears once per row and once per column. Some of the numbers are filled in whilst some are blank. It is your task to work out which number goes in the question circle.
Deductive reasoning tests measure your ability to make logical arguments and form sound conclusions. These abilities are extremely important at work, and employers will be keeping a close eye on the results of your test. To perform well on deductive reasoning tests, practice is essential.
On the KPMG numerical reasoning test, data is presented in charts and tables in a special format, closely resembling a typical case study. All charts and tables refer to a certain company and are organised in different tabs so that only one tab is visible at a given moment.
For example, the details of the questions may describe an investment company and present more finance-oriented tables (e.g., balance sheet). The questions follow a true/false/cannot say format. Each question is a statement, and your task is to decide whether it is true, false, or if the provided information is insufficient to arrive at a firm conclusion. To make that decision, you need not only interpret the numerical data correctly, but also to figure out which tab contains the relevant information for that particular statement.
The KPMG verbal reasoning test measures your reading comprehension skills. On it, you need to understand and analyse complex verbal information. There are a few different short paragraphs of related information arranged into different tabs. However, you can only view one tab at a time. You are presented with a statement and must decide whether it is true according to the information given, false, or impossible to say. To make that decision, you need not only draw precise conclusions from the text, but also to figure out which tab contains the relevant information for that statement.
Preparation is the key to success, and you can use our cut-e (Aon) practice test pack to familiarise yourself with the concepts and skills needed to really perform well on the KPMG online aptitude tests. We look forward to helping you in your application.
