Applicants are reminded to bring their driving licence to the multiple choice test – details below.
The multiple choice test will be conducted this year in collaboration with the Universities of both Surrey and East London. The test for all three programmes will take place on Saturday 16th February, 2019. Due to the Salomons, Surrey and UEL courses operating different minimum entry requirements, applicants applying to any of the three courses may be eligible to take the test for one course but not another.
The three courses work collaboratively over arrangements for completing and sitting the test. In 2019, applicants to the Salomons programme will sit the test in the following two locations:
At Surrey University if they have also applied to Surrey.
At UEL if they have also applied to UEL.
If they have ONLY applied to Salomons (i.e. not to either Surrey or UEL), Salomons-only applicants will, for this year, also sit the multiple choice test at UEL.
Successful applicants will be contacted directly by the Salomons programme regarding the specific arrangements and their location for sitting the test.
Example multiple choice questions are available on the Salomons website to aid applicants in preparing for the test Applicants are advised that the content and format of the multiple choice test may change from year to year, and may include a range of questions relating to, amongst others, statistical issues, qualitative and quantitative research methods, ethics and values.
The Salomons, Surrey and UEL programmes operate independent post-test short-listing procedures and the information presented here regarding short-listing and interviewing applies to the Salomons programme only. Applicants applying to the Surrey or UEL programmes should consult their respective websites for information on their short-listing and interviewing procedures.
Applicants with disabilities will be given appropriate support to sit the tests. Reasonable adjustments will be made to testing procedures where these have been recommended, in accordance with University guidance. Applicants requiring additional support owing to a disability or specific learning requirements are required to contact the Selection Administrator, Sophie Pattemore, on 01227 927075 to discuss.
Following completion of the SJT and multiple choice test, an interview short-list is compiled by the Programme team, primarily based on test scores. Short-listed candidates will then be invited for interview. We are unable to provide feedback to candidates on their performance in either test.
Please note that Salomons applicants who take the tests at either the University of Surrey or UEL locations, will be subject to the terms and conditions implemented by either the Surrey or UEL programme at that time. This will include arrangements for special considerations for the undertaking of the tests in line with University guidance, and any other circumstances that may affect the running of the test procedures.
