After taking the test, you will be anonymously entered into the Employer Talent Search Database (you can opt out of the database at any point after the exam is completed), which employers use to find candidates to fill internship and entry-level positions. All test results are anonymous, so you maintain control over which employers see your information.
The test is comprised of eleven sections measuring finance knowledge/aptitude and career skills and consists of 155 multiple-choice questions.
We encourage you to use your BAT scores to enhance your resume and to post this information on your social media profiles. Highlighting your participation in the BAT will set you apart from thousands of other candidates. You can also mention the areas of the test that you performed well on during interviews to demonstrate and reinforce your abilities to employers.
We look forward to seeing you and good luck!
