I Got Invited For KPMG Aptitude Test, Is This For Real? by chidike(m): 12:10pm On Apr 05, 2012
Hey guys, i received a mail to come and write KPMG aptitude test, i don't remember applying for a job at KPMG, i'm a 2012 batch A corp member, just left camp. Although some consultancy firms came to talk to us in camp about jobs and recruitments, i made sure i submitted my email to all of them as they promised to send us job alerts. So i need to know if there's actually going to be a KPMG aptitude test on April 14, in lagos. And since i didn't directly apply but got an email, if i travel to lagos, will i be allowed to write the exam? (i'm in kaduna and don't want to watse transport money). Also, is it to early to start applying for jobs since i just started my NYSC??

The sender of the email is NG-FM Careers and this is the content:

KPMG is an accounting,audit and consulting firm.It's part of the global Big 4 consulting firms.The test held some weeks back at the venue in the invite you got. They had a system glitch,that's why invites were sent again.
Go give it a try,it's never too early to start job hunt.

I got this same message too. my question is 'will kpmg allow people that don't have discharge certificate and yet to complete NYSC to write this aptitude test?'

One thing you guys should note before you write, YOU GET ONLY ONE CHANCE TO PASS. Once you write it, you cannot write it again except in special circumstances. @Easydone, can you confirm?
Re: I Got Invited For KPMG Aptitude Test, Is This For Real? by chidike(m): 2:28pm On Apr 05, 2012
One thing i really want to know is about the sender, the email was not from KPMG but NG-FM Careers, so i really need to be sure that i'm NG-FM Careers sent it on behalf of KPMG. Still waiting for help.

KPMG is one great place to begin your career and I strongly encourage you to prepare very well for the test. as it is a once written, never re-done kind of test. Do all you can to prepare and come take test on that day as it is no scam at all.

For the question on NYSC discharge certificate, did you see the condition in your invitation? They know you have not completed your service. They deal with intelligent young chaps so go do your thing.

Here is wishing you God's grace and may He crown your efforts with great success ultimately, AMEN.

Gotta love a company that wants nothing but the best not "who is your father" or "who do you know"
Re: I Got Invited For KPMG Aptitude Test, Is This For Real? by toseen29: 4:03pm On Apr 05, 2012
You wil b allowed to write d test, go along wit ur NYSC ID Card. Most times there recruitment selection process takes as much as 6 mnths b4 its completed(i.e wen they wil finally pick d ones they find gud enuf to work wit). If u ar successful in d exam u wil as wel b allowed to attend Interviews as a corper. Gud Luck to Nlanders writin d Exam.

Maths...word problems, ratios, percentages, discount etc english...synonyms, antonyms, comprehension, critical reasoning, etc.. U will c ur result immediately and if you pass u will write an essay on topics like 'where you see yourself in the next five yrs', leadership etc. Just study well. U will be alllowed to write even if you r still serving, just go with the documents required...all the best!
