    Hi,

    I've applied for the Project Management Scheme. They got back to me and I've completed 2 tests. After that they sent me an email saying that they will review my results and get back to me shortly.

    Does anyone else know what the turn around time is?

    Thanks in advance

    What type of things did they ask on the questions? (E.g. Like meeting customer needs, time managment)
    They sent me an email to complete the situational judgement test.
    I am going to do it today

    Hi,

    Most of the situational judgment test questions were scenarios to do with - Time Management -Planning - Teamwork - Leadership - Socialising/ Networking.

    There's no right or wrong answers in this test and it isn't timed; So you can take as long as you like.

    The General Abilty test really wasn't that difficult. It's range of Maths, Literacy and Mechanical questions. You'll have 10 minutes to complete 12 questions.

    But I think the tests depend on the scheme tbh

    Hi,

    I applied for the finance scheme and it took about 2 weeks for TfL to send the tests.
    Completed the numerical test for the finance scheme today and will attempt the situational tomorrow.
    Anyone else find the numerical test considerably harder than the practice test lol

    I applied for the project management one and have been invited to take the tests. I'm really nervous. My partner works for tfl and has loads of internal material but I don't think this will help me with the online test. Are they hard?

    The tests were okay.. i think they are the same regardless of what apprenticeship youve applied for and the situational test theres no right answer its just to find out more about yourself as a person and how you would deal with different situations at work
