Selection Process

1. PRE-SELECTION 

The MCQ tests will need to be completed in your chosen Language 1. The Pre-Selection Exams will consist of Verbal, Numerical and Abstract reasoning tests.

Some good new regarding the Numerical Reasoning Test - while you will need to get at least a pass mark of 5 for it, your Numerical Reasoning Test mark will not count towards your overall Pre-Selection exam score!

Please note that these tests are eliminatory and do not count towards the other tests held at the Assessment Centre.

Naturally, you will need to do much better than a pass mark in the pre-selection exam stage if you wish to progress to the next stage of the competition. Only those with the highest total combined marks for the Verbal and Abstract Reasoning Tests will make it to the E-tray Exercise round. So plan your preparation and start practicing right now!
