National Grid Assessments
This test presents you with a series of challenging scenarios that one might encounter in the workplace and then a number of possible responses to the scenario. You then chose which one you feel is the best way to describe how you would react. As with the rest of the tests you will be timed and so it is important that you read the information properly. It is important to know the company values to ensure your answers are best matched with theirs.
You will be given a group task, usually involving a meeting or business scenario that you will be expected to provide solutions for within the team. Either way you will be expected to analyse information presented to you. You’ll be assessed on how you perform within the group, whether you show strong leadership skills or better support skills. You must be careful to strike a balance between dominating the group and being too passive.
You will be expected to give a short presentation on a subject provided. You will be given time to prepare and will be allowed to take prompts in with you. This will normally relate to a case study that you will be expected to read, analyse and make a presentation based on your findings. This will be assessing your public speaking and presenting skills as well as how you perform under pressure during questions following your presentation.
