The situational judgement test (SJT) measures your capacity to understand real world situations and to identify critical factors and appropriate behaviour in dealing with them.
Why Situational Judgement?
The test assesses integrity, perspective taking, team involvement, resilience and adaptability. SJTs are used widely in medical and dental selection, including selection of Foundation Doctors and Dentists, GPs and other medical specialities.
Situational Judgement Items
You will be presented with 69 questions associated with 22 scenarios (consisting of between 2 and 5 questions). You will have 26 minutes to answer all questions within the subtest.
The test consists of a series of scenarios for which you will need to consider either the appropriateness of possible actions, or the importance of possible considerations.
Some of the questions will require that you rate each response from four possible options. Other questions will require you to choose the most and least appropriate action to take in response to the situation, from the three actions provided.
Questions do not require medical or procedural knowledge.
