There were two essay topics, but you have to choose one. My topic was "Write on any topic that is of global importance and why it is of universal importance" (something like that sha, I can't exactly remember the essay question). Also I didn't bother to read the second essay question, it was too long and I didn't have any juice left in me to analyse what it meant. I made some few grammatical (spelling)errors in my essay sef (I just tire).
To the aptitude test, I really can't remember any question verbatim, it was just the normal ratios, percentage etc (though d questions aren't straight forward, just pray for grace). The current affairs wasn't too hard, few historical questions. Gmat didn't really help me for the critical reasoning( I saw something completely different from gmat critical reasoning).
In all, i'll say the difficulty level is "above average" infact it is very close to "hard".
Just pray for grace and with hard work, you would excel.

I got the same essay questions.. but I chose the second (long) one.. I wasnt in the mood to think about a globally important topic. The aptitude is probably the hardest I have ever written.

Same here. I heard it's like a situational judgement test.

Guys, if you wrote the essay, please check your emails. I think the deadline for everyone is 4pm. Not sticking to time might be another way for them to cut some candidates off. So please be wise.

so has anyone taken the test.

erm abeg, did anybody really keep to that 20mins time limit ish, because I didn't, infact I spent well over 20mins. The reason for this is because one of my guys told me that the time limit means alot and that we could be penalized.

That's not really true. The 20 mins is an estimate. I spent over 20 minutes too.
Re: 2017 KPMG Graduate Trainee Recruitment Thread by kunbeeee: 8:01pm On Feb 09, 2017
I spent over 20 minutes..in fact I lost connection like 3 times and each time I did it took me back to the previous question.
