Situational Judgement Exercises

A role based exercise, normally in the format of a Situational Judgement exercise, is based on past or adapted decisions or judgments.

The typical objective of setting a Situational Judgement exercise is to assess analysis and decision making skills. It may also assess knowledge. Analysis and decision making relates to an applicant’s critical reasoning skills – how you analyse and evaluate complex information, identify the key and important points and reach an outcome quickly and accurately.

Situational Judgement exercises may require a written response and may occur prior to the interview date; alternatively it may be used within an interview with questions to probe and challenge your perspective, rationale and considerations.

On this page you will find adapted Situational Judgement Exercises which were used in previous schemes.
