Hello!
I’ve also applied and I got my invitation this morning to do the online assessment. Has anyone got any tips on how to do this?

Hey well done! I'm still waiting to be invited to do the test. From looking at the website its in 2 parts. First is a series of questions about your style of work and second is scenarios and video assessment of your responses to situations. https://www.policenow.org.uk/how-to-...ne-assessment/ this will help give an understanding of it.

Hi guys, I’ve just done the test! Some tips are just make sure you leave more than 60mins, took me a while and make sure you can film on whatever decide you use to do it! Was pretty testing

Hey! Do you have any tips for the questions themselves? What sort of things were they asking and how was the video questions?

Hi, I'm at the video stage etc. Has the maths test been scrapped? it doesn't list it as part of the assessment centre process like last year ? I hope so, I'm terrible at maths.

Hi I just completed mine. The video's are not that bad really, just give it your best and be yourself. There is no maths, only what they have said on the website. So good news

Just finished mine! I'm sure the questions will not be exactly the same but I recommend refreshing on what the Police Now scheme is all about and the goal of the scheme(i.e. increased community relations).
Most of the questions are competency based / do not require specific knowledge about the police but I can guarantee there will be a question based on the Police Now objectives/process.

I thought it went really well! The key is to act natural and just pretend you're responding to a physical person - show some charisma. I only had three video questions though, the rest of the responses were either hand typed or manually selected. The waiting game begins :/ ... Good luck!
