RSM Online Aptitude Tests

If the application form that you sent out was good enough to get you shortlisted then RSM will invite you to take online numerical and verbal reasoning tests provided by CEB SHL or Talent-Q

The RSM Verbal Reasoning Test

With regards to the RSM verbal reasoning test, you will be presented with a paragraph of information containing a number of often disjointed facts. There is a statement below the passage and using your analytical skills you need to discern whether the statement is true, false, or impossible to say based on the passage. Practising for the CEB SHL or Talent Q verbal reasoning test is of utmost importance as this is one of the key predictors of success later on.

The RSM Numerical Reasoning Test

In this test, you will be presented with numerical information in the form of statistical tables and graphs. Using ratios, percentages and other mathematical skills you need to complete the test by calculating the correct answers and selecting the correct option. Prepare for the CEB SHL numerical test or the Talent Q numerical test with JobTestPrep.

RSM Cognitive Ability Test

The cognitive ability test comprises a variety of topics such as numerical, verbal, deductive and logical reasoning. You should solve all exercises within a given time frame. Overcome obstacles with the appropriate practice materials provided by JobTestPrep. Start practising today. 

If you successfully complete these tests, RSM will invite you to attend the RSM Assessment Centre.


RSM Recruitment Made Simple

Preparing yourself for any of these tests is important for two main reasons. Firstly, the actual layout and format of the test is something that you will not have seen before. Therefore, if you aren't familiar with this layout, you are essentially shooting yourself in the foot. Secondly, the particular skill that you need to demonstrate here is that of working under the pressure of time. The majority of people taking these tests don’t complete them in the time given. This is a failing that can be taken care of with practice. You can think and work fast enough if you create a method for doing so. This is why preparing for these tests is so important.

RSM Interview Process

As part of the Baker Tilly/RSM recruitment process, you will participate in several interviews. Generally, the hiring process includes three interviews which are conducted via the phone, person, or online as part of a job simulation. However, you should be prepared to participate in more interviews. Therefore, it is vital you sharpen your interview skills by practising answering behavioural, technical and competency-based questions. Employ STAR method to always present your answers in a clear and efficient manner. 

RSM Interview Questions

  • Why this company?
  • Tell me about yourself.
  • What separates you from other candidates?
  • Tell me about a time where you were in a leadership role.

RSM Assessment Centre

By successfully passing the online tests, you will then be asked to go to a Baker Tilly/ RSM Assessment Centre. This is your opportunity to really shine. There are a number of different activities at the RSM assessment centre. These activities will include further confirmation aptitude tests, interviews and working with some case studies. It is important that you are successful in these confirmation tests. If not, you may be sent home at this point. For this reason, it is vital that you are continually practising for these tests.

Following on from these confirmation tests you will be faced with a case study exercise.

RSM Assessment Centre Case Study

In the RSM case study, you are given a set of information to read and then use and analyse to answer a series of questions. These questions may require you to use similar skills to those used in the earlier verbal and numerical reasoning tests, but you also need to be able to read larger tracts of information, manage your time and workload and provide written rather than multiple choice answers. Prepare for this exercise with our online case study preparation pack.

Throughout the day, those who are not making the grade are asked to leave. To make sure that you survive each cull, you need to ensure that you are fully prepared.

RSM Group Exercise

The RSM Group Exercise follows on from the case study. The group exercise involves being split into groups and given an additional case study. This time, the object of the exercise is to discuss the issues. Being a confident team player in these exercises is critical and JobTestPrep also has guidance in this area too.

RSM Interview

After lunch and after another cull, there is the RSM interview. This interview is usually going to be competency based with some general questions about motivation etc. It is also a general chat with one of the partners as they want to know more about you. As with other aspects of the day, preparation is vital. You need to know why you want to join RSM and have good commercial awareness and an understanding of the financial world. JobTestPrep can help you prepare for the RSM Interview.

RSM Graduate Scheme

The RSM Graduate Scheme is a three-year training programme towards becoming an accountant. A career in this industry is challenging but rewarding and as such, competition for places at RSM is high. The application process begins with the completion of an online application form. It is very important to be honest and open. You should take your time to fill this form in as it is your first opportunity to really sell yourself. If you have been shortlisted, RSM will invite you to take some online tests to do in the comfort of your home.
