About

This PrepPack has been designed to give you SJT preparation and an understanding of what is involved when you come to take your Situational Judgement Test for real.  


What is a Situational Judgement Test?

SJT tests are a popular psychological tool used by assessment companies, employers, and organisations to evaluate applicants' behavioural and cognitive abilities when introduced with hypothetical, daily work-related situations. Situational Judgement Tests don’t have a specific format and often have different criteria. They are often tailored according to the personal needs of the hiring company and made according to the key competencies of the specific company.


What Are the Question Styles in an SJT Test?

The scenarios presented on Situational Judgement Tests always ask for a resolution of a given conflict which, although being hypothetical, might very much rely on, or represent, realistic situations that occur in a workplace. You are asked to choose a preferred method of action out of many possible options. You are encouraged to choose your responses spontaneously, based on intuition. You are generally encouraged to answer the questions in a spontaneous fashion.


What Are the Difficulties You Can Face When Taking an SJT Test?

There are a number of difficulties you face when encountering an SJT. First and foremost is the fact that the companies using SJT’s often want you to act in a spontaneous fact. If we think about this for a second, we know that this isn’t the case. When you are asked as an employee to decide about a certain thing you are not making spontaneous decisions. You should be thinking about to do, even for a few seconds, before following it through. There are questions in the SJT that need careful thought and are designed to catch you out. However, with careful preparation and our expert guidance, you will gain the skills needed to show the employer that you are the one for the job.


How to Pass Situational Judgement Tests

When answering SJTs, try to actually imagine yourself at work, and answer the questions accordingly. This is quite important since we all act and react differently inside and out of the workplace. When taking a situational judgment test, you want to answer as your 'work self'—the logical, reasonable, mature version of yourself. A full list of tips for situational judgement tests can be found in our SJT online preparation pack.

Frequently Asked Questions About SJTs

How Many Scenarios Can I Expect to Encounter in the SJT?

You can expect to find between 25 – 50 scenarios on any given SJT. The scenarios are usually engaging and challenging. After you are presented with a scenario you will then have to either find the most (or least) suitable response to the scenario or rank/rate the responses in order of effectiveness.

How to Select the Correct Response in My SJT?

Read each of the given scenarios and each possible response carefully before answering. Though one answer choice may seem appropriate, there may be another one which is more sensible. If the question asks you to rank the responses, compare them to each other. However, keep in mind that all the responses may be effective, or they may all be ineffective - your task is to rank the responses, not decide if they are right or wrong.
