*UPDATED for May 2020*

How2Become’s police tests resource has been updated to include the latest recruitment information, and sample questions for the new online assessment process, introduced in May 2020 by the College of Policing. The new online police assessment process includes the following: a situational judgement test (SJT), video interview (competency and values based), a written exercise, and briefing exercise.

POLICE ASSESSMENTS – WHAT ARE THEY?

The Police assessments, (formerly the Police Initial Recruitment Tests), are a series of exams consisting of 2 main types of psychometric tests; a numerical ability test and a verbal ability test. Both tests are multiple choice questions that you will take in an exercise room alongside other candidates. The most effective way to prepare for these psychometric tests is to carry out sample practice questions which relate to the new police core competencies.
