Situational Judgement Test (SJT) 

As part of the PRE, a one hour, 30 question version of the SJT was taken by 6,842 participants in 72 venues between November 2011 and January 2012. This was equivalent to an overall participation of 90% of all applicants to the Foundation Programme. All applicants were invited to take part in the pilot, and were provided with feedback in the form of a decile in March 2012.

The results were used to help validate the SJT items and evaluate the effectiveness of the questions, and to ensure that delivery structures were in place for delivery of the SJT for Foundation Programme 2013.  Feedback from applicants indicates widespread satisfaction that the content of the assessment was relevant, fair and appropriate for selection into the Foundation Programme.

More information on the PRE SJT can be found in the Final Report of the PRE and the SJT section of the website.
