4.3 Accenture Virtual Reality Assessment

What is the Accenture virtual reality test?

The Accenture Virtual Reality Assessment is an innovative and immersive experience. You will enter the testing environment where you will need to solve problems and identify the right courses of actions. These will require you to apply data interpretation, problem solving, resilience and work agility to succeed.

Good to know: The Accenture virtual reality assessment is only introduced in some areas. Therefore, you may or may not be required to take this assessment depending on your area of interest. 

What will the Accenture virtual reality assessment involve?

There are three different Accenture virtual reality scenarios that will be used to examine you:

  1. The Egyptian Crypt, where you will be asked to work on moving a set of hieroglyphs, strategically using as few moves as possible, until you order them in the correct form.
  1. A set of ten podiums will be presented to you, each involving a problem or puzzle to be solved.
    • These will include arranging rocks into correct size order, counting the number of specific objects or answering quick common knowledge questions, e.g. capitals of some well-known countries.
    • This task will put you under time pressure and examine your management skills and prioritization as you may not be able to complete all of them successfully.
  1. The final Accenture Virtual Reality exercise will simulate an office environment.
    • Here, you will be presented with a virtual device including all information regarding your current live project.
    • You will need to analyse given information to evaluate the status of the project and make a conference call to record a summary of your findings.

As Virtual Reality assessments help recruiters evaluate your behaviour and performance in unusual situations, there is no direct way to prepare for Accenture’s Virtual Reality Assessment.

  1. Choosing a Safe Space: Ensure you have enough physical space to move around safely while wearing the VR headset. Clear any obstacles that might interfere with your movements.
  1. Read the Instructions Carefully: Pay close attention to the instructions provided before starting the assessment. Understand the objectives, rules, and any specific tasks or challenges you need to complete.
  1. Focus on the Task: While the VR environment may be visually stimulating, remember that the assessment is about your performance on specific tasks or challenges. Keep your focus on the assessment objectives.
  1. Use Problem-Solving and Critical Thinking Skills: Accenture virtual reality assessments often present challenges that require problem-solving and critical thinking abilities. Analyze the situation, consider different perspectives, and apply logical reasoning to make informed decisions.

Once you have aced the Accenture virtual reality assessment, you will be invited to the last stage of Accenture test, i.e., the Accenture final interview. Let’s see what you can expect.

4.4 Accenture Final Interview

What is the Accenture final interview?

The Accenture final interview will be conducted by a senior manager or director from the business area that you applied to.  You may be asked either technical or behavioural kinds of questions. If you are applying for a business role, you may also have to sit through the Accenture case interview. 

This will be your last chance to stand out from the competition and prove that you are an ideal candidate. Let’s get into more details of the Accenture case interview. 


The Accenture case interview examines the candidate’s ability to solve a business problem at the workplace. During the case interview your interviewer presents a situation or case and then asks you to explore the underlying causes of the problem and suggest recommendations to remedy the problem.

 The cases given in the Accenture case study are real business situations mostly drawn from the interviewer’s personal experiences and will last for 45-60 minutes.


The only way you can pass the Accenture case interview is cracking the code and breaking tasks into pieces. Here are the steps you may follow to do well in your Accenture case interview. 

Top 6 tips to Pass the Accenture Case Interview

  1. Practice with Sample Cases: Familiarize yourself with case studies by practicing with sample cases. This can help you become comfortable with the format and the process.
  1. Understand the Problem: Identify and define the main issue or challenge that requires attention. Clearly express the central concern being explored in this case study.
  1. Identify the Nature of the Issue: Begin by identifying and providing a clear definition for the primary problem or challenge that needs attention. Convey the core aspect being investigated in this specific case study.
  1. Examine the Situation: Dissect and analyze each aspect of the problem at hand. Assess various factors, stakeholders, and variables involved. Consider employing frameworks to organize your analysis, if appropriate.
  1. Assess the Options: Evaluate both positive aspects and drawbacks associated with each solution you have proposed when prioritizing which solutions appear most promising.
  1. Review and Edit: After completing your case study analysis, review your work for clarity, coherence, and correctness. Check for grammatical errors and ensure your ideas flow logically.

This was all about your Accenture case interview, but you may be also required to answer behavioural and technical questions at your Accenture interview.
