(The only exception to this if the candidate is from a target school i.e: Oxbridge, Wharton etc.)

Although from my experience, candidates who often perform well in these assessments often hail from local unis. However, if a candidate meets the threshold percentile on his tests, we will still extend the employment offer whether or not hes from a local uni.
Compelled to add to this:

Private uni grads in accenture usually gathered in different departments (albeit with local uni grads there as well).. such as technology, operations, security.

Where you have strategy consulting (not like ACN strat is one of the top-tiers but definitely pays significantly more), u cant find even 1 private uni grad there (in Singapore office).

Just different business models.
