EPSO Situational Judgement (SJT)

This is a part of the EPSO computer-based testing. It is taken in the second language of the candidate.

It is taken to assess the following factors-

  • Analysis and problem-solving.
  • Organization and prioritization.
  • Result and the quality of delivering.
  • Working with others.

The candidates must be very careful and take decisions very preciously and should be much situational judgement.

Here are a few important tips for situational judgement and interpersonal skills-

  • Avoid conflicts and work for hand in hand with the team to make better relations with them.
  • Never state fake assumptions and never lie. Always tell the truth and facts. Candidates should not try to get involved in matters where they don’t require him/her to.

  • Try a few online tests at home to build self-confidence. This will help one to build up confidence and he/she won’t get nervous while giving the actual exam.

Abstract reasoning tips for EPSO

Another preselection test found in EPSO exams is the abstract reasoning. This tests deals with the candidates ability to identify logical patterns in a series of figures.

They will give each candidate10 abstract questions with 10 minutes. These marks which will be scored in abstract reasoning will be directly added to numerical reasoning. To pass out this exam one must get 10 out of 20 as combined marks in numerical and abstract reasoning paper.

Types of abstract reasoning exercise

Candidates mostly have to answer questions like what may come next. Candidates should carefully examine the given figures then seek for patterns. Some of the most commonly used patterns are-

  • Rotations in clockwise and anti-clockwise.
  • Mirroring
  • Movements in horizontal, vertical, and diagonal directions.
  • Mirroring and rotations combined.
  • Moments on a different degree.
  • One figure may rotate clockwise while others in anti-clockwise.
  • Color alternatives.

Bottom line-

Be prepared for all these kinds of problem-solving and prepare well. Always keep on practicing and look for the weak points and work on them a little bit more.
