Situational Judgement Tests

 

Situational Judegment Tests (SJT’s) assess how you approach situations encountered in the workplace. Whilst there is some variation in how they are delivered, they typically present you with a written description of a scenario and ask you to select the appropriate response from a multiple choice list.

They are designed to test your potential across a number of competencies. Competencies can be defined as: “An underlying characteristic of a person which enables them to deliver superior performance in a given job, role or situation.”

Our test experts have identified 8 core core competencies graduate employers are looking for following research across a variety of industries including, accountancy and financial management, consumer goods, engineering, financial services and insurance, investment banking and investment, legal, management consulting, retail and pharmaceutical. Try an example question below then upgrade to the Bundle package or the Situation Judgement package to access the full test material covering all 8 competencies.
