Useful information: All the information you need about the test itself – how to prepare, how to book a test and a guide to what will happen on the day of your test.
Prepare: The behavioural case study questions within the test are not published, but you can prepare for these by watching the film 'Setting Out'. You can prepare for the knowledge questions by reading through the question bank and checking your knowledge and understanding of the topics.

For specialist tests, candidates should revise sections A-E, plus the relevant chapter in section F.
