civil service in-tray exercise help please?

Hi Guys,

I am in need of some help for a civil service in-tray exercise. I have an interview coming up within the next week and the in-tray exercise must be submitted the day before my interview date for HEO policy role.



The exercise is asking for a 1-page analysis of a recent civil service consultation(about 47 pages). The consultation they have provided and the response must be sent to them via email.



Has anyone does this before? Any advice/ tips would be appreciated.

Thanks

The briefing book is a more appropriate response than the white paper approach
