National Selection

March 30, 2011

We all find exams quite nerve racking but it helps the confidence massively if we have revised thoroughly. The same applies when taking the National Police Officer Selection Test (NPOST). Being able to practice the test before taking the real thing is a huge help for candidates, and fortunately companies such as Police Prof provide the materials to be able to practice.
I know some of my colleagues benefitted from being able to try out some practice question prior to taking the NPOST. So what kind of questions can you expect in the test? Well it is made up of four separately timed test sections:

• Mathematics
• Reading Comprehension
• Grammar
• Incident Report Writing

The first three sections are filled with multiple choice questions and true or false options. The report writing requires answers in complete sentences. You will be told how long you are allowed to answer questions in each section, so it is important that you pace yourself. I have heard of candidates failing because they took too long over one particular question. If you are struggling to answer a question, make your best guess and move on. If you have time left at the end you can always return to the question and change the previous answer.
Practice makes perfect so taking at least one trial run is a really good idea. It will not only give you a good idea of the types of questions, but also the timings required on each question. Why not download an exam paper now and see how you get on.
