Ace Aptitude tests from JP Morgan to UBS and more

As you start applying for the Summer analyst and Graduate analyst roles across financial institutions and investment banks, remember that you will need solid preparation for the initial screening stages so that you don't get rejected too early without reaching the interview stages.

Most top banks like MS and GS have opened their programs. Of course you must apply for multiple roles but various firms employ different aptitude test systems. So NOW is the time to start familiarising yourself with the special features of popular apt tests, common pitfalls to avoid, scoring systems (yes, wrong answers can get marks deduction 😨) and the newer AI-based screening systems. Here’s a snapshot of the popular Apt tests:

➡ SHL/CEB/ Gartner (e.g. Hang Seng, Deloitte, MTR, Swire, Barclays)

➡ Cut-e (e.g. KPMG, UBS, Morgan Stanley)

➡ Talent Q (e.g. Macquarie) 

➡ GradACE (e.g. HKEx)


➡ CAPP System (e.g. HSBC and Jardines) 

➡ Professional Learning Indicator: PLI system (e.g. DBS)

➡ Skyrise/ Pymetrics Game : (PwC, Blackstone)
