You have the option to withdraw your application at any time, if you want to have a crack at the tests it's all an automated system until you get past the RAD stage so I'm sure you won't be wasting anyone's time, although a better alternative would be to just google prison online test or even have a look on the website where you apply to be a prison officer, there are practise tests there i.e. Senarios, maths and English. Everything that you would find on the online tests. As far as the next stage 'RAD' the only way you would know is to attend one. Which if you arnt ready to do at this current time, I wouldn't waste a place for someone who is looking for employment now.

I agree , 5 years is a long time . The recruitment team is allready struggling as it is . You can buy practice tests book online for 10 £ if you want to see how you do on exams .

That's brilliant, any idea or recommendation when it comes to titles of books?

Just out of curiosity, are the SJT scenario tests a one correct answer question? I.e if the correct answer is very affective and you tick affective would it still be enough to pass that part of the test!

Fireflash - it is calculated by percentage. so say the correct answer is 100% the nearest answer is less than that and the completely incorrect answer is 0%. So in answer to your question - yes you can still pass if you don't check the correct response. it's designed to see if you have any level of each of the personality quality they are looking for. Hope this helps 😉
