Situational Judgement Test
The Situational Judgement Test (SJT) is designed to assess the competencies and attributes required in order to successfully enter into the foundation programme. The SJT is comprised of the following components:
- 70 questions (10 of which are pilot questions)
- Comprising approx two-thirds ranking style, and one-third multiple choice questions
- To be completed in 2 hours and 20 minutes
Ranking questions carry a possible 20 marks. Up to four marks are available for each correctly ranked option, although marks are awarded for near misses. There is no negative marking but beware that you will lose potential marks if you tie two responses! For an exact breakdown of the marks please visit the official Foundation Programme Website.
Multiple Choice Questions
Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) carry 12 possible marks: four for each correct answer. Whilst there is no negative marking, choosing more than three responses will result in a mark of zero for that question.
An overall score of up to 50 points will be awarded following successful completion of the SJT. Points are awarded based on the overall performance of the cohort with the highest scoring participant gaining 50 points and the lowest scoring participant scoring 0 points. Exact details of points allocation are not currently available.
