It's time to get back into study mode!
Today the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) released the computer-based test results for the 2019 EPSO AD5 competition.
It appears that those that got 48.5 and higher in their pre-selection exam will make it to the next round of the Administrators Generalists competition.
Congratulations to all those candidates who successfully made it through to the E-tray stage of the EPSO AD5 competition!
E-tray booking period: 8 November - 14 November 2019
E-tray Exam Period: 2 December - 5 December 2019
Now that you’ve made it to the next round, it’s time to start practicing for the E-tray Exercise.
The competition is going to be fierce since only 294-368 candidates will make it past this point to the Assessment Centre. Plus, you only have four weeks to prepare before the E-tray exams start on 2 December, 2019.
The strict time limit imposed during this test and the vast amounts of information that candidates will need to process super quickly to complete the E-tray Exercise makes it a very challenging test.
Understanding the logic behind the E-tray Exercise and following strategies to boost efficiency are vital in the preparation of this exam, to maximise your final exam score.
Those EPSO candidates who take the time to understand the right and wrong behaviours for each competency strongly increase their chances of getting a higher score in the E-tray exam.
The good news is we can help you get E-tray ready in record speed. We have pulled all our resources together to give you the best E-tray preparation tools available.
E-tray Exercise Simulations
3 BRAND NEW E-TRAY simulations have just been uploaded to our test database.
One of these has even been made available in all top 5 languages of the AD5 competition - English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
This means EU Training has 30 AD practice E-tray exercises available in English, 7 E-tray tests in French and one available in German, Spanish and Italian.
As with the Pre-Selection exams, regular and consistent practice really does make a big difference in increasing your speed and efficiency.
That's why we recommend you do a few online E-tray simulations to get familiar and proficient with this exam.
