EPSO Assessment Centre Prep Plan

EU Training

Many candidates are currently facing the following predicament...

  • You've completed either the pre-selection computer-based tests or intermediate tests.
  • You know you've passed and have your exam score but don't know if it is high enough to make it to the next stage.
  • You're still awaiting information on whether you've made it through the eligibility check and what the threshold score for your last exam will be.
  • Then comes the Talent Screener Review phase - which could happen really quickly or drag out for ages - before getting any news of whether you have been invited to the Assessment Centre or not.
  • All the while you're asking yourself - should I be using this time to prepare for the Assessment Centre without knowing if I will actually progress to this stage?

With many EPSO competitions being at a bottleneck and not progressing, while a bunch of valuable time passes by that could be put to good use as preparation time, it is only natural that many candidates are feeling a bit antsy.

Further fueling this anxiousness is the knowledge that the start of the Assessment Cente period could be announced very soon after finding out the final results of the Talent Screener Review, leaving candidates with little to no time to prepare for their Assessment Centre exams.

Our best advice, given what we have observed over the last 15 years that we've been helping candidates prepare for each stage of the EPSO selection process, is that it is never too early to make a plan. Give yourself plenty of time to fully digest what's expected of you and prepare for what EPSO assessors will be observing and seeking via the Assessment Centre exams.

Waiting until you get your invitation to the Assessment Centre to start working on your exam plan and preparation may be too late - especially if the Assessment Centre takes place shortly after the invitation is sent.

Of course, there is a chance that you may not make it through to the next stage, but what if you do?

Your goal should be to give yourself the very best chance possible to shine at the Assessment Centre.

But even if you don't make it past the eligibility or Talent Screener review stage, don't get disheartened. The time invested preparing for the Assessment Centre now, via your current competition, can still be put to good use at another competition.

So really, you have nothing to lose.
