    Dear all,

    I am a third year Law undergrad (planning to do a Master's next year), so am about to start applying for straight TCs (did not secure a vacation scheme this year, but have other legal work experience lined up).

    I don't know much about the Watson Glaser but so far I have never seen it in a TC application (applied last year to 10 TCs and got rejected).

    So was wondering, when is it necessary to do one? If it is, is there any way I can prepare for it? Is it just an online test you are required to take, or is there a course which can help you better prepare for it?

    Sorry for sounding awfully ignoring about the matter, but I guess I am.

    Any information is more than welcome!

    It's necessary to do one when the firm uses it as part of their recruitment process. It's sometimes done early on (pre application screen), sometimes post application screen, or even at the assessment centre stage.

    I wouldn't recommend paying for a course to practice these tests. There are online versions you can practice.

    It is just an psychometric test, designed to assess your verbal and logical reasoning skills. It will ask you to assess arguments/propositions/assumptions and make conclusions.

    Thank you, I see it being mentioned quite a lot, but I have never actually encountered the requirement to complete one myself.
    I will look into it, but as far as I have understood, it is just a psychometric test
    that if present has to be completed, like a logical or verbal reasoning one so to say.
    Thank you for your reply!
