KPMG's Situational Judgement Test - what is it about?

Candidates applying for roles at KPMG are requested to undertake the situational judgement test as a part of the selection process. Any role at KPMG requires the applicant to sit this SJT. From both the Vocational programme, a 4 -8 week short taste of life at KPMG, to the Graduate program. Even the experienced professional will need to sit the KPMG SJT. The situational judgment test usually follows the completion of the online application form and takes about half an hour to complete. Here are some general characteristics of the test:

  • The test includes somewhere between 12-20 scenarios.
  • There is usually enough time given to answer all questions without any feeling of stress.
  • It is comprised of a series of scenarios based on real work-related situations.
  • The test can include video scenes in which actors simulate the discussed scenario in order to bring it to life and allow the candidate to imagine being in that situation.
  • You will be given several different possible ways of answering the question, such as, “what would you do in this situation?” and be given four different options.
  • You have to select the most appropriate and efficient solution for each scenario.
  • This test is designed to assess some of your working habits, conflict management skills, conduct and behaviour, decision making and potential managerial skills. All of these different factors affect your chances of qualification. Since each role requires different skills and competencies the test is accommodated to best reflect your qualities essential for the role.

Is there any need in preparing for the SJT test?

Just like any job selection test, the KPMG situational judgement test can affect the way in which you are being valued by hiring managers and future supervisors. It creates a first impression of your work-related skills and habits. Moreover, it gives the hire a snapshot of your skills that can be more fully assessed later on in the process. Our experience shows that pre-exposure to selection tests can equip the candidate with useful insights and confidence. In the case of the SJT, the added value of our practice pack lies both in the practice tests and in the complete guide to SJTs that accompanies it. Prepare for this test here.

KPMG Numerical Reasoning Test

In this test, provided by Cubiks, you will be presented with numerical data in the form of tables and graphs. After carefully analysing the information, you have to choose the correct answer from the choice of five. For each data set, you will have to answer four questions. There is a total of 24 questions and they need to be answered within a 20 minute time frame. The test covers a wide range of basic mathematical concepts, such as percentages, ratios, and the four arithmetic operations. Calculators are allowed, and the questions assess your ability to extract information, draw conclusions and apply data analysis skills, all under strict time constraints. Check our Cubiks style tests for KPMG.

KPMG Verbal Reasoning Test

This test is also provided by Cubiks and includes 40 questions to be answered in 20 minutes. You will be presented with a paragraph of information that contains numerous facts relating to economic, social and job related topics. These texts are not the easiest to understand and a careful reading is necessary. You will then have to answer four questions on each text that are answered in a True/ False/ Cannot Say style. Speed and a deep understanding of the differences between the three answer options are vital for scoring highly on this test. Check our Cubiks style tests for KPMG

"Your test materials are an excellent way to practice for employers' actual reasoning tests. The video tips are also most helpful. An excellent product that I would recommend to anyone preparing for employer tests."
KPMG Tax Graduate Trainee, UK, May 2015
"I have now done 2 rounds of case studies for KPMG and Capita. What helped was attention to detail, the skill of staying calm, all the answers are in the study. Your tests helped set practice to absorb data and pluck out key facts, this then helped when case studies were of smaller content."
