Marta from Spain

"I strongly recommend this service. The trainers have high level of expertise and experience. I have received valuable tailored feedback and guidance, which give me solid foundation and confidence for the actual interview."

European Commission Internal Comp. | Interview Simulation |  | 15 February 2023

- from anonymous participant

"I had several personal coaching sessions with Ticiana Tuccias well as participating in an online Field-Related Interview classroom training session led by Ticiana. I was very impressed by her well-structured content, clear explanations, and deep knowledge of what was required to prepare for the various Assessment Center examinations. Her guidance was clear, to the point, and always relevant. Ticiana was also available to answer follow-up questions and provide additional resources. Thanks to her, I felt very well-prepared. I can strongly recommend Ticiana!"

How many times can I use a question? And how many times can I revise a test?

Our questions have no expiration date, your question balance has no expiration date. You can compose new tests as long as you have new questions on your account, and you can revise previous tests without any time limitation.

We created a system that helps your EU exam preparation in the best possible way:

  • After you buy an exam preparation package, you can use these questions to create new tests in any composition and language you wish.
  • Once you launch a new test, the number of questions that you put in there will be deducted from your account and you can use each question once, similarly to a test book where you mark your answer options.
  • However, as a special gift to our customers, we created a system where you can re-take any of your previously composed tests as many times as you like (you can do this by finding the test you wish to re-take via the Practice Activity block of your Dashboard).
  • You can monitor your progress via the Statistics block as well.
  • After submitting or re-taking a test, you can revise all your previous tests in Review mode which includes an option to turn off the 'Explanation' feature to further improve the revision experience.
  • Moreover, revision is not limited in any way. You may revise previous tests and questions for an unlimited period and for an unlimited number of times.

Is there more than one language available for practice questions?

Definitely - yes! There are many languages now available in EU Training's comprehensive EPSO tests practice questions database.

How do I buy test questions in the language I want to practice in?

When buying question packages, you are buying a quota of questions from our database and not specific questions. This means that in the Start New Test block you can choose which language(s) you want to do your practice tests in. You do not pick this up at the time of purchase.

TIP: make sure you click on the little (i) in the table on the Products tab to see how many questions we have in a particular language per test so you don’t over-purchase.

Do the practice test questions I've purchased have an expiration date?

Absolutely not. All your purchased questions will remain in your EU Training Dashboard with no expiration whatsoever. You can start a new test as long as you have questions left in your balance (see the MY QUESTIONS block on your Dashboard), or you can Redo/Review your old tests under the Practice Activity block.

Start practicing! You can purchase EPSO-styel practice test questions here.

Where can I find resources for the EPSO MCQ tests?
