I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pointwest (Quezon City, National Capital Region (Philippines)) in July 2015.
The exam has 4 parts as what I remember. They actually call it as "Harvard exam". The math and logic part were quite easy. But since calculator is not allowed and time is very limited, the exam becomes difficult to pass. And what makes it more difficult to pass is the verbal part. it consists of words that you might haven't heard before.

Test was as they call a "Harvard test" consisting of comprehensive reading, mathematical and logical questions. Other candidates were given a regret letter whereas I advanced to the next exams, which was an essay type and an abstract exam. Interview was done via phone a few weeks after the exam. No follow up was given afterwards.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pointwest (Quezon City, National Capital Region (Philippines)) in January 2012.
Online application is a breeze, HR will call you as soon as possible. HR will do a long initial - technical phone interview, where in my case took 40 minutes. Then will message you and invite you for an assessment exam if you qualify or passed that initial phone interview. If you pass the assessment exam, you will be directed to the technical interview (that may be done by a panel of interviewers or maybe a person only) that will take for 2 hours. If you pass the technical interview, you will be directed again for another technical interview.
