Essential Business Knowledge


BCG Potential Test (more than 85% of success rate)
Question

- Common mistakes: Miscalculation or misinterpretation.

Save time for other question, try to approximate.

Improve exhibit reading.

When reading exhibits

1. Read the title


2. Read units.
3. Read and know what’s there (do not try to comprehend it)

Root Cause

Pitfalls

- Wrong subject/context (zero effect on the context)


- Wrong trend (the trend is opposed to what is said)
Fact-based conclusion question

Conclusions can be true, false or unproven

Do fast
The reason why BCG potential test is so difficult is because of the time constraint. So what I did was
work on any questions from the BCG potential test I could find and try to solve them super quickly. For
example, this question should be solved in 30 seconds "One of the biggest global airlines has decided to
buy new aircrafts. The ratio of first class, business and economy seats in the new aircrafts will be 1 to 3
to 8 and the total number of seats will be 240.

Average ticket prices for popular destinations are expected to be €700 for first class, €300 for business
and €150 for economy. The average duration of these flights is 3 hours.

First and business customers get free Wi-Fi on board but economy customers need to pay €2 / hour to
use Wi-Fi.
Assuming that only 5% of economy customers use Wi-Fi all the time, what are the expected revenues
from a flight to a popular destination using a new aircraft at its full capacity?

€56,048

€56,016

€56,480

€56,160"
