Is this course for university students or for experienced professionals? Who is a typical student?
While there is no reason why a university student would not succeed in this course (and they often do!), most students in this course are experienced professionals. A typical student is a graduate of a Russian university with a major in economics, finance, or a math-related subject and 2-5 years of experience in audit, FMCG, banking, venture capital, or consulting. Exceptions (university students with no experience, unusual work experience, university major not related to math or economics) do occur about 17% of the time.
Where do you get your in-class tests from?
We have developed our own unique tests based on real McKinsey projects across 10 countries and 15 industries. Each test question is inspired by a certain challenging question from PST A 2012, PST A 2013, PST B, and PST C. As a result, Fless tests are more difficult than real PSTs. Which is exactly what you need for a thorough preparation.
What homework do you assign?
90% of homework are 42 mock PSTs from various sources (paid and free). Rest is a bit of practice on computation, chart reading, and critical reasoning. Extra materials available to students completing 100% of homework assignments.
What does your progress report look like?
Below is an example of a progress report we share with our students each week. Every row tracks student's progress for a specific question type and compares it to previous students who have taken the PST and successfully passed it. So far, we have 10+ of them
Can I buy your tests?
No unfortunately. Our tests are confidential, and we do not sell them or share them in any way. ConsultingGuru, MConsultingPrep, IGotAnOffer and others have tests available for purchase.
Do you ever enroll more than 10 people in this course?
No. We prefer 6-8. 10 is a rare exception
