Online critical thinking test

The critical thinking test is designed to measure your abilities and skills. It will tell us if you can look at a situation from multiple perspectives and separate facts from opinions and assumptions. Some questions are straightforward, others more complex. This is so we can test your critical thinking ability as a whole.

We’ll be looking to measure inference, recognition of assumptions – identifying unstated assumptions underlying given statements, deduction, interpretation and evaluation of arguments. There are 40 items in total, and you’ll have a time limit of 30 minutes.

First interview

If you’re successful with the online section, we’ll invite you for an interview with a trained interviewer from your chosen service line. This will take place in the office you’ve applied to and will last about an hour. It’s designed to help us test your suitability through the questions we ask you and to allow you to learn more about our firm and culture.

Final interview

Pass the first interview, and this one combines a presentation and a further interview assessing your values and motivations with a senior member of staff from the area you’re applying to join. You’ll also be invited to join us for lunch to learn a bit more about the firm.
