Accounting student inducted into Hall of Fame after outstanding Bloomberg Aptitude Test result
14 Jul 2014
An accounting student has scored in the 99th percentile in the prestigious Bloomberg Aptitude Test.
Lev Chupyatov now enters the BAT Hall of Fame with the third highest score ever achieved in the Asia Pacific Region.
The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) is a standardised online exam for tertiary students interested in a finance or business career.
Developed by the Bloomberg Institute in collaboration with industry professionals and leading academics, the test assesses students in the areas of Economics, Investment Banking and Analytical Reasoning.
The test highlights the students' strengths as well as areas that need development while also providing global peer comparisons.
Students can choose to have their scores appear anonymously on the Bloomberg Talent Search database, connecting them with graduate employers worldwide.
Lev said he found the BAT useful partly because it offered an opportunity to test his understanding of important concepts relevant to his studies.
"The BAT tests the conceptual understanding of finance-related areas rather than the ability to memorise facts, hence the test can be considered a robust indicator of one's strengths and weaknesses in certain fields," Lev said.
"Lev's results in this test clearly indicate that our students are career minded," said the Business School's Associate Dean (Undergraduate), Associate Professor Nigel Finch. "It also shows that learning at the Business School is firmly focused on ensuring that students are workplace ready."
BAT tests are held regularly free of charge at Bloomberg's Sydney office.
