Online Selection Tests

Post by benbrand » Wed Sep 05, 2018 6:43 pm

Happy Wednesday, all!

I've searched the forum and have been unable to find a thread on this; please forgive if there has already been a discussion.

It's going to be difficult for me to get back to the UK for selection tests, so I was wondering if anyone had put together a list of courses which have online selection tests? Or if you have a list of courses which have no selection tests that would also be great!

It looks to me like Lancaster, Plymouth, and Cardiff have online selection tests through SHL. I also remember taking one with UEA last year. Does anyone know of any other courses that have online selection tests?

Any help appreciated!
Ben

UEA's one is in-person this year, on the day of interview, so you'll only need to do it if you get shortlisted for an interview.

So there's no online-pre selection test? I remember in the past it was an online pre-selection AND another pre-selection test on the day of the interview.

They trialled that (I can't remember if it was last year or the year before?) but it wasn't a helpful approach, so it returned to just a test on the day.

Ah, yeah, it was the year before. I actually managed to find everything I needed in the alternative handbook. Thanks! :)
