If you have successfully passed the online application screening, you will be invited to sit online psychometric tests. Depending on the line of business and position you applied for, you may be asked to sit a combination of psychometric tests including:
- Accenture Situational Judgment Test
- Accenture Deductive Reasoning Test
Accenture Situational Judgement Test
The Accenture Situational Judgement Test will examine your characteristics and skills when faced with unknown life situations – that you are likely to encounter when working for Accenture. This test is designed to check if you suit the core values that Accenture are looking for. These were described in the first section of this article.
Situational Judgement Test (SJT) is especially difficult because all answers will seem like appropriate options. They will all have some good qualities – so you need to differentiate between which are practical, and which are desired by Accenture. In many cases you will face a trade-off between choosing situations where you show leadership, determination, creativity or maybe integrity. Since you can only follow only one course of action, you will need to use your judgement to decide which option fits the particular scenario.
Tip: Never try to manipulate your answers. These tests are designed in a way that will flag up any inconsistencies in your answers. Put across your true self and do not spend too much time analysing each answer – they should come to you naturally.
The Accenture Situational Judgement Test will be similar to the example below.

Accenture Deductive Reasoning Test
This test will not examine any particular area of your knowledge. You will be presented with 5 diagrams with varying shapes and spatial arrangements, and then will be asked to identify the right pattern to determine what comes next in the sequence.
The main difficulty the Accenture deductive reasoning test, often referred to as a diagrammatic or logical reasoning test, is that there is no pre-requisite knowledge required and there is no limit to how abstract these patterns and trends can be; both two- and three-dimensional shapes will differ in: size, arrangement, movements and colours.
However, the test is not as difficult as it seems. By having a look at Accenture-style diagrammatic reasoning tests offered by Graduates First, you will get familiar with the format and level of difficulty of the questions. A lot of patterns are repetitive and follow similar logic, so by practicing you will grow in confidence and be better-suited to take your real test.
Tip: Some people find it easier to cross out all the answers that do not follow the pattern you have identified in order to find the right answer. It might also be helpful to try to follow the pattern with your fingers on the desktop to save time drawing the diagrams on paper.
If you are looking for an Accenture-style logical reasoning test with answers, worked-solutions, progress tracking and professional score reports including personalised tips based on your performance, then Graduates First has it covered. Have a look at an example below.

You will have ONLY around 45 seconds to notice that:
- the arrow moves around the diagram
- shapes change from triangle to circle to square and
- the long line is either horizontal or vertical, and then to find the right answer! There is a lot of time pressure which often leaves candidates anxious and harms their performance.
