IMPORTANT Points You Should Know:


Stay the same:

Questions asked later on in the exam do NOT change depending on your previous answers.


No pit stops:

There will be NO rest breaks in between questions. If you wish to go to the toilet you can do so but the exam will continue without you and you will lose valuable answering time.


Good news:

You can return to previous questions, alter your answers and flag them, so it will be easier to find and review them.


More good news:

You CANNOT get negative marks for incorrect answers so never leave questions unanswered, as even guessing might give you a few more marks.


Even more good news:

All questions within a given subtest are awarded equal marks. However, it is possible to achieve partial marks in certain questions in Situational Judgement and Decision Making if the given answer is partially correct.
