The top percentile

The McKinsey Problem Solving Test (PST) is a test designed to filter out the smartest of the smartest. Have you always been the brightest of your lot? This time you are likely to be average.

make it or break it

No matter how outstanding your Resume is, if you fail the McKinsey PST you will not be invited to the first round of interviews. Unofficial data consistently show that you will need to score at least 70% to pass.

Our method, your success

The McKinsey PST tests a very specific skillset. Our Performance Radar method allows the independent assessment of each area as a basis for an efficient and time effective preparation programme.

A LEVEL OF PREPARATION YOU WON'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE

 

  1. Beat time pressure: We developed techniques for each of the five question types in the Mckinsey PST that will make you save time and boost your score. From practice, practice, practice to smart practice.

  2. Focus your efforts: our Performance Radar helps you pinpoint the question types where you need more preparation, enabling you to tailor your training and track your progress. No more random practice.

  3. We stand by you: our experienced ex-MBB (McKinsey, Bain, BCG) consultants are always there for any question or clarification, just email us


The Performance Radar changed the way I prepared for the McKinsey Problem Solving Test: I moved from a random 360-degrees practice to a structured preparation focused on the areas where I was weakest. And those same areas quickly became the ones where I was getting the highest scores.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

+ I have the PST in 5 days. What is the best method to prepare?

When you do not have much time left we suggest you to:

  • Understand how the test is structured: many people fail the PST simply because they don't know it well. You can find all the details about the PST on our PST Guide. You may want to double check the total time, since most offices will give you 60 minutes but some others 70.
  • Develop a solid answering technique: It is essential for you to acquire an answering technique allowing you to make the best use of the very limited time in the test. Our video and the PST Guide will help you a great deal.
  • Practice smart: We advise you to try the official tests on the McKinsey website. If you want to boost your chances our best pick is the Test Ready Package above. You will have the chance to practice on three 26-questions full-lenght sample PSTs. Then, our Performance Radar will help you identify your weaknesses by translating results in your performance across the 6 PST question types. The PST Guide will teach you useful methods on how to tackle each question type and the 60 additional questions will help you master a sound technique for each of them. In other words nothing will be left off the checklist!

P.S. Do check whether the first round of interviews is immediately after the PST or on a different day. In the former case, we strongly advice you to prepare for case interviews. The Beyond Test Ready package also includes 1 hour of case interviews with our Mentors.

+ Why is the passing rate of the PST so low?

Passing the PST is hard mainly because of the time constraint. If you had 2 hours you could easily score more than 90% but you only have 1 hour. It is therefore essential for you to be able to manage time. Watch our video for tips on how to save time during the PST
