    Hi! Has anyone applied for the Centrica graduate scheme for 2017? I am in the process but have noticed that the questions are different from last year.

    Rather than asking you to describe an example , they give you a scenario and ask you what you would do in that situation.

    Anyone struggling to apply STAR method to this type of question?

    It's not mandatory to use the STAR approach to all the questions you may be asked. STAR works well when trying to relate an example from your own experience to someone else, who not only does not share your experience but might not even have the same background as you.

    This type of question is probably more fair as it does not necessitate certain types previous experience to answer.

    I'm glad to hear that because it's quite tough to do STAR against these questions. AR I see possible. On Centrica's ApplicationTips, it suggests STAR method but I'm guessing that PDF has not be altered since last year

    Star is almost impossible, it looks like the Situation & Task are in the question.

    You shouldn't use STAR for these type of questions. STAR only works for competency question which are "tell me about a time you have...".

    These questions are judgement tests, so you just focus on the actions you would think you would take.
