EU Knowledge Revision Sources

The EU Knowledge Test is a relatively new type of EPSO exam, appearing first in 2021 by our records. It is a multiple-choice test comprised of questions about the the EU and its origins, the various EU institutions and the main policies of the EU.

Some EPSO competitions may require candidates to demonstrate their knowledge of the European Union and the various EU institutions. 

To practice and get familiar with the type of questions you may be asked, you can add EU Knowledge test questions to your EU Training account here.

To further assist you, as an EPSO candidate, with your preparation, we have compiled a helpful list of resources below that covers a wide spectrum of EU knowledge.
