    Does anyone know which test BC use? Is it there own or maybe something like the SHL or PSL??

    Also, any recommendations on useful books?


    It's either SHL or PSL.

    Yeah as above (can't remember exactly). Practise on the shl or psl websites. No point revising for them tbh, they're not that hard.

    For spring weeks it was SHL I believe.

    thanks everyone! i am actually applying for full time employment so i will practice both!

    If you pass the numerical test, do you have to take the verbal test straightaway?

    they're slightly different SHL tests. you won't get invited to do the verbal/logical tests unless u pass the numerical (and you don't have to do them straight away). it's slightly easier than others because u get more time to do the questions.
