The Assessment Centre

Applicants successful at long listing (eligibility checking) will be invited to assessment (written tests of numerical and critical reasoning and a situational judgment, scenario-based, test).

Assessment tests will be taken electronically and offered through test centres at various locations throughout the UK and Europe. In previous years we were able to provide a small number of test centre places in Australia, New Zealand, North America and South Africa and we envisage being able to do this again for 2020. Candidates will be required to provide evidence of their identity before sitting tests. Candidates should be careful to check what identity evidence will be accepted at the test centre. Candidates will be given time to familiarise themselves with the test environment before timed tests begin.

Assessment tests will be held only on 10 January 2020 (to be confirmed) 

Applicants will need to reach a minimum standard at the tests of numeracy and critical reasoning and the situational judgment test. Applicants meeting this standard will then be ranked according to their scores at assessment. Applicants failing to meet the minimum standard at assessment centre will be notified at this stage that their application will not proceed further.
