Private Equity and the Buy Side

I’m applying for a PE role and have been given a take home model test where they want me to build a dynamic 3 statement model with up/down/base cases. Is there a template I can find online for this?

You should be able to do this from scratch man or you’re going to struggle in the job. You can find guides but not templates online through the interview prep services like Wallstreetoasis. I would get one of those, practice hard and then crush the next one you have to do
