Marking of Prioritizing and Organising Test / SC-1 and 2 | EU Training

Does anyone know how the marking on the Prioritizing and Organizing Test for the Secretaries' Competition works?  The notice of competition says that its 24 questions in 30 minutes and that they are being marked "out of 48"  and that its being marked also in combination with the Accuracy and Precision tests at "44/88".  Can anyone help clarifying how this scoring will work?

Thank you!

Prioritizing and Organising - 24 questions - 2 marks for each question = 48 marks; Accuracy and Precision - 40 questions - 1 mark for each question = 40 marks.  This makes total of 88 marks and total of 44 marks which is minimum to get in both tests. For example, if you get 20 marks in Accuracy and 24 in Priority, then you get total of 44 which means you passed the exam and then you need to wait for threashold marks decided by EPSO in order to reach for second phase of exam.

Dear Sitakshi - Thank you.

Dear Sitakshi - Thank you.  So 2 marks per question on P&O - I figured this would be the case.  But then I am curious:  If one picks a solution that is only the second best, does one still get 1 point or is it strictly 2 points for a correct answer and 0 for everything else?  Thanks!

Hello Charlie, I am not from EPSO but as far as my understanding is concerned, there is no second best in P&O.  There is only one answer correct.
